#KashmirIsAnInternationalIssue

Srinagar, November 23 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders have said that Kashmir is an international dispute as has been recognized by UN resolutions, and needs to be addressed accordingly.

The leaders in their statements issued in Srinagar, today said, internationally recognized status of the Kashmir dispute is an established fact and there is no doubt about it.

India’s August 5, 2019 illegal and unilateral moves can’t change the fact that J&K is not New Delhi’s internal matter but an international issue, they added.

The Hurriyat leaders pointed out that India’s hegemonic mindset was stopping it from accepting that J&K was a disputed territory. They added that New Delhi’s August 5, 2019 actions were in contravention of the UN resolutions. The leaders urged the International community to take notice of Indian illegal authoritarian moves vis-à-vis Kashmir and put pressure on India to honour international commitments on Kashmir.

It is high time for the UN to accept its responsibility for helping to resolve the Kashmir dispute as per the world body’s resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people, they said.

Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Chairman Shabbir Ahmed Dar and International Forum for Justice and Human Rights Chairman Mohammed Ahsan Untoo during their visit to ailing Mahaze-e-Azadi Chairman Mohammed Iqbal Mir in Islamabad expressed their anguish over the continued Indian aggression and the unabated killing of Kashmiris. However, they expressed satisfaction over the passing of a resolution by UNG on the right to self determination saying that it would pave the way for final settlement of the Kashmir dispute. The resolution was tabled by Pakistan.

APHC leader Farida Bahanji in a statement in Srinagar said that the brave people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir were sacrificing their lives to liberate their homeland from the tyrannical clutches of India. She said that the Kashmiri people were fighting not for privileges but for their right to self-determination. She asked the people to boycott the upcoming local bodies’ elections, saying that India was using their vote to mislead the world. KMS—7K
