ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Security & Strategic Policy Planning, Moeed Yusuf said that India cannot break the Kashmiri people’s resolve anywhere in the world.
In a series of tweets, Moeed Yusuf spoke about his experience in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Assembly, saying it was an honour “to witness the emotions and steadfastness” and the lawmakers’ “bond with our brothers and sisters in IIOJK this morning”, referring to the government’s revised name for the Muslim-majority region — Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
“India cannot break the resolve of Kashmiris anywhere in the world, regardless of whatever illegal steps it may take,” he wrote.
The aide also underlined the difference between the actions of Pakistan and India, the latter of which he said was “the clearest stumbling block to peace in South Asia”.
“If our region is to move forward, India must demonstrate its sincerity in resolving the Kashmir issue according to UNSC resolutions. If it does, peace will be a natural outcome,” he added.
Earlier today, PM Imran Khan in a message to the Kashmiris vowed to “raise my voice for you until the day you get freedom”. Speaking to a rally in Kotli near the Line of Control (LoC), the premier assured Kashmiris of his efforts to “raise my voice for you everywhere until Kashmir gets freedom.”
“However much I can, I am raising my voice on your behalf at every forum, and will continue to do so. Whether it is with the United Nations, world leaders, or European Union leaders. I asked the past president of the US three times as well to resolve this issue. Rest assured, I said I will be the ambassador of Kashmir, and I will raise my voice for you everywhere until Kashmir gets freedom,” he said.
Pakistan is observing Kashmir Solidarity Day today with renewed commitment to bring the issue to the limelight and express support of the nation to the just struggle of the Kashmiri people for their inalienable right to self-determination under the UN resolutions.
The events will be organised in a novel manner. The aim will be to highlight the facade behind India’s so-called democracy prevailing in Delhi that ripped off the special status of Kashmir on August 5, 2019.
The day was first observed back in 1991 when the entire political leadership of the country unanimously expressed solidarity with the Kashmiri brethren.
Prime Minister Imran Khan in the today’s regard said Pakistan will remain unshakable in its solidarity with the Kashmiri people until they realise their inalienable right to self-determination. PM reaffirmed Pakistan’s resolute support for the Kashmiri, who continue to be subjected to an inhuman military siege and communications blockade since August 5, 2019.
The prime minister demanded India give access to the international human rights organisations, as well as the international media to investigate the grave human rights situation in the occupied territory.
