President Masood proposed that the government should invite jurists from all over Pakistan to present proposals on the Kashmir issue. He added that the proposals have to be then presented to the jurists and legal experts of the world. We must synergise our efforts and this can achieve fruition only if we have a strong political momentum overcoming the inertia.
Highlighting the illegal actions taken by India in IIOJK, he said that the present BJP-RSS government in India illegally bifurcated the disputed State and made it a part of the Indian federation. Besides this, India has also issued a fake map in which AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan were shown as a part of India.
He said that the agenda of the BJP-RSS regime is driven by hatred, exclusionism and majoritarianism.
“It is because of the Indian government’s Hindutva policy that Kashmir is the biggest hotspot for Islamophobia in the world. People of Kashmir are being punished simply because they are Muslims.
Kashmir is also the biggest terrorist hotspot in the world as India forces are committing state terrorism against innocent Kashmiris”, he said.
