Nothing done for liberation of Kashmir: Sirajul Haq


ISLAMABAD Feb 03 (TNS):  Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that none of the governments in the country had done anything for the liberation of Kashmir and instead the rulers had been keen for friendship and trade with India at the cost of the Kashmiris’ blood.

Addressing a big Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, he said that Islamabad diplomatic efforts on Kashmir had been a total failure whereas Indian diplomats had been successful in winning over the world, and that was why even the Muslim states did not have a strong stance on the Kashmir issue.

Sirajul Haq said that the United Nations had adopted twenty three resolutions in support of the Kashmiris’ right of self-determination but none of these had been implemented during the last seventy years.

However, he said, that the UN and the world community would have to take prompt steps to solve the Kashmir issue to ensure peace in the world. He said the Kashmiris had doubts because of the hypocrisy of the Pakistani rulers who were on one hand vying for friendship with India and exchanging the cultural troupes and artists but at the same time, claimed to support the Kashmiris cause.

The JI chief said that the regional peace was seriously threatened because of the Kashmir issue and cross border firing from India and shelling inside the country were causing several deaths.  India’s provocations could trigger a full-fledged war any time that could spread over the whole world.

Sirajul Haq said that the Kashmiris were laying down their lives for Pakistan and their martyrs were being buried wrapped in the Pakistani flag while the Pakistani rulers were indifferent and vulgar and obscene Indian films were being shown in this country as were ruining the character of the youth.

He said if the rulers were sincere with the Kashmiris, they should give a clear line of action for the solution of the issue as would also boost the morale of the Kashmiris.

The JI chief appealed to the nation to observe the Kashmir Solidarity Day on February five with full national spirit as Pakistan was incomplete without Kashmir.  He said the Amnesty International had written hundreds of letters to the UN highlighting the human rights violations by the Indian troops in Held Kashmir but the UN seemed to be totally deaf and dumb on the brutalities being committed on the Muslims in Kashmir.

Sirajul Haq also addressed the participants of the JI central workshop at Mansoora in the evening.
