ISLAMABAD: September 26;Mushaal Hussein Mullick, the Chairperson of Peace and Culture Organization praised Prime Minister Imran Khan for raising the Kashmir cause at the global stage vociferously and powerfully.
Mushaal, who is the wife of jailed Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Muhammad Yasin Malik, stated that PM Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi raised the issue at the United Nation General Assembly (UNGA) effectively.
However, she stressed the need that the world should also support the Kashmir freedom struggle and take tangible solution to rid Kashmir of the worst enslavement of Indian fascist government.
Speaking at a function here on Saturday, the Hurriyat leader said that the role of the youth in Kashmir freedom movement is of a paramount importance; hence the Pakistani youth have to come forward to turn the table onto the Hindutva regime, unleashing a reign of terror in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
“I had been in the Jammu and Kashmir and know what kind of atrocities the Kashmiri people are enduring,” she maintained.
Mushaal added that Pakistani youth are the voice of Kashmiri people and the role of young people play a key role in the success of any movement.
The chairperson said that the issue of Afghanistan has been resolved and now the world’s attention is focused on Kashmir.
“If the late Syed Ali Gilani had remained silent after listening to the people, resolutions would not have been passed for him in Parliament,’ she added.
Similarly, Mushaal said that if Imran Khan had given up the struggle 24 years ago after listening to the people, he would not be the Prime Minister of Pakistan today.
The Hurriyat leader went on to say that Fatima Jinnah was an example for Pakistani women who stood firm in front of her opponents.
Therefore, she said that we need to bear in mind that we don’t bargain for the ideological sense of the state come what may.
“We have to believe that Kashmir can be free and we have to believe from the heart that the green crescent flag will fly in Kashmir soon, as only we can materialize the cherished dream,” she added.
Mushaal said, “You have an example of how the world’s superpower was defeated by constant struggle in your neighborhood, so the day is not far away when Kashmir will break the fetters of Indian slavery.”
She expressed apprehension that in the wake of August 5’s notorious step by Indian government, Hindus are being resettled in Kashmir in massive number under a malicious plan as if India is planning to hold a referendum afterwards, which would be disastrous.
Therefore, she demanded that Pakistan should speed up its efforts to convince the world powers to ensure resolution of Kashmir dispute as per the UN agreed formula and aspiration of Kashmiri people at the earliest in order to foil the Indian nefarious designs.
