MUZAFFARABAD ( News10 ) – Pakistan President Dr. Arif Alvi Friday attended the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly session to pay tribute to the just struggle of the people of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) to obtain freedom.
The participants saluted the will and determination of Kashmiris for their right to self-determination as Pakistan observes Kashmir Solidarity Day today (Friday).
Earlier in his message, the president said the resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the wishes of Kashmiri people is key to durable peace in South Asia.
He called upon the international community to hold India accountable for its crimes against humanity in IIOJ&K.
Calling self-determination one of the fundamental rights codified in the United Nations Charter, the president said the denial of this right and subjugation of Kashmiris is the very negation of human dignity.
He said the demographic apartheid in the occupied territory by the Indian occupation forces is further violation of international law wherein the Kashmiris’ majority is being turned into a minority in its own land.
