Self-determination for Kashmiris stressed
ISLAMABAD: All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) leader Syed Ali Gilani has said the Kashmir dispute basically involves the Kashmiris` right to self-determination that has been denied by India for over six decades in violation of UN resolutions.
He was talking at his residence in Srinagar on Tuesday to former prime minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry.
Mr Gilani said India had no moral justification to hold Jammu and Kashmir against the wishes of the Kashmiri people and resolution of the Kashmir dispute was imperative for the security of the region.
He appealed to the governments of Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir to raise the issue at the international level more vigorously.
Barrister Chaudhry said the people and governments of Pakistan and AJK were with their brethren in the occupied territory and would not leave them alone in this time of trial.—APP
