He said that the way the people of IIOJK observed strike against the oppressive Indian laws and the change in the demography of the territory was enough to open the eyes of India and the international community.

He said that Jammu and Kashmir was an internationally recognized disputed territory and India had violated international law by amending the state subject, Property Act, Sections 370 and 35-A. He added that India forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir in 1947 and the Kashmiri people had been fighting for their right since then which had been recognized by the international community.

He added that unless the Kashmir dispute was resolved in accordance with the UN resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, lasting peace could not be established in South Asia.

Khawaja Firdous urged the international community to play its due role in resolving the Kashmir dispute so that peace could be established in the South Asian region.
