KashmirParliament to act as new center to push Kashmir discourse: Shehryar Afridi

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Shehryar Khan Afridi on Thursday said that the Parliament would act as a new center to push Kashmir diplomacy.

While addressing the participants of a Seminar titled “Emerging Dynamics of Kashmir Issue: Predicament and Prospects” held under the auspices of the Youth Association of Pakistan, Shehryar Afridi said that the Parliamentary Committee is engaging the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and other relevant bodies to ensure level playing fields to Pakistani and Kashmiri activists on the digital platforms.


Shehryar Afridi said that the Kashmiris have refused to budge over their resolve for freedom from Indian subjugation despite spending decades in jails and offering sacrifices.

The Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir said that Kashmiris are offering sacrifices and Pakistanis need to raise our voices for Kashmiris whose voices are being crippled by the Indian Illegal occupational regime of India.

Shehryar Afridi said that the Indian occupational regime was furthering atrocities against the unarmed and peaceful Kashmiris. He said that Indian forces were not only killing the Kashmiris but they were engineering a demographic change by awarding residential status to non-Kashmiris.

In addition, he said that Pakistan would raise the Kashmir dispute at all international forums under a new diplomatic offensive. He said that the Kashmir Committee was working to preserve and project Kashmiri culture as the Indian regime was destroying Kashmiri culture and heritage under its genocide plan.

Shehryar Afridi said that the youth of Pakistan needs to fight for the cause of Kashmir on the digital front to give a befitting response to Indian keyboard warriors dedicated to manipulate global opinion on Indian Illegally Occupied Kashmir (IIOJK).

The Chairman urged the youth to become bloggers and Vloggers and put gadgets to use for a national cause. He said that only the people of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir together can keep the issue of IIOJK alive on the global canvas.

Furthermore, he said that we shall not let the world forget the miseries Kashmiris are going through.

The former High Commissioner Dr. Abdul Basit, Dr. Maria Sultan, Raja Najabat Hussain, and others also addressed the event.
