ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Senate on Friday unanimously passed a resolution strongly condemning the illegal annexation of Occupied Kashmir by India led by Narendra Modi and the RSS gang he represents.
The resolution was moved by the Leader of House Shibli Faraz.
The resolution reads that the annexation is an attempt by India to change the demography of occupied Kashmir as part of their racist and fascist agenda.
Participating in the debate on Kashmir situation, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl’s (JUI-F) lawmaker Maulana Ghafoor Haideri said that the entire nation is united on Kashmir dispute. He voiced concerns over curfew and security lockdown in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK), and said that Pakistan should extend practical support to Kashmiris people.
The Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed said that Narendra Modi’s decision of annexing the Occupied Kashmir is aimed at changing the demography of the territory.
However, he added that, Modi’s decision has unified the entire Kashmiri leadership and India is also internally divided on it. He said that Kashmir freedom movement is indigenous in nature and it should remain so.
Mushahid Hussain said that we have to mobilize the International Community on the festering Kashmir dispute. He said that it is the battle of ideas and we have to engage the media, think tanks and our diaspora to effectively highlight the Indian atrocities in the occupied territory.
While condemning the Indian unilateral actions in occupied Kashmir, Nighat Mirza of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) said that the Muslim Ummah should come forward in support of Kashmiri people. She said that we should send Parliamentary delegations to different capitals to apprise them about the actual situation in occupied Kashmir.
Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) Mian Raza Rabbani regretted the silence of Muslim Ummah on the prevailing situation in IOK. He said that there are only three Countries China, Turkey and Iran which have openly supported Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir.
Raza Rabbani suggested the Parliament takes the initiative to apprise the human rights organizations about the human rights situation in the Occupied Kashmir.
The PPP’s Senator Rehman Malik said that Modi is a terrorist and his agenda is against Pakistan and Kashmir. He said that Modi is carrying out genocide in occupied Kashmir and he should be tried under war crimes.
The Pashtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party’s (PMAP) Usman Khan Kakar said that Kashmir dispute should be resolved in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people. He said that Kashmir belongs to the people of Kashmir.
In his remarks, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Mohsin Aziz said that the people of the Indian Occupied Kashmir are valiantly rendering sacrifices to get freedom from the evil clutches of India. He said that we salute their sacrifices. He said that Pakistan should go ahead with closure of its airspace with India.
