Pakistan Will Continue Supporting Just Struggle Of Kashmiris Till They Achieve Their Right To Self-Determination As Promised In The Un Resolutions: Syed Fakhar Imam - November 1, 2019

    Islamabad, the 1st November, 2019; The Chairman Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Syed Fakhar Imam says Pakistan will continue supporting just struggle of Kashmiris till they achieve their right to self-determination as promised in the UN Resolutions.

2. In an exclusive interview with Radio Pakistan's News and Current Affairs Channel, he said India has deployed 900,000 troops against eight million population of the occupied Kashmir, which has become unprecedentedly highly militarized zone in the world.  He said Modi regime is committing barbarism in Occupied Kashmir in pursuit of ultranationalist Hindutva philosophy of RSS, which started since 1923.

3. Syed Fakhar Imam said Pakistan had never recognized when the Indian government abolished Article 370 and 35 A through presidential decree as it was an internal arrangement between ex-prime minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru and ex-chief minister of Indian Occupied Kashmir Sheikh Abdullah. Under that arrangement, they had granted special status to the Occupied Kashmir with a Legislative Assembly and now New Delhi has negated the internal arrangement negotiated between Nehru and Shaikh Abdullah.   He said we consider Kashmir a disputed territory as recognized in UN Security Council Resolutions of 1948 and 1949. He said Kashmir is still a disputed territory and UNSC's special session convened in August this year has once again vindicated this point.  He said special session of the five permanent members of the UNSC over Kashmir is recognition that it is an international dispute, which has to be resolved through a UN brokered plebiscite and in accordance with the aspirations of the people of Kashmir.  

4. The Chairman said now the Modi regime gas converted the state into two union territories, giving them under the direct control of New Delhi. He said occupied Kashmir has been under curfew and complete communication blockade for last 88 days. He said around 13,000 young boys have been taken away, women are being raped, and there is shortage of medicines and food, while children are unable to go to school.

5. Syed Fakhar Imam said that the international media, including New York Times and Washington Post, highlighted how the humanity is suffering at the hands of Indian occupation forces in Kashmir. He said the world has realized that it is India, which is committing state terrorism in Kashmir and rejected New Delhi's narrative in this regard. He said two reports United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) have revealed that India is involved in massive human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir. He said for the first time about 12 members of foreign relations committee of US House of Representatives put very tough questions to Assistant Secretary of State Allice Wells and questioned why Trump Administration is keeping mum over grave human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir. He said French Parliament also debated the situation in Occupied Kashmir.

6. Answering a question, the chairman said due to effective campaign of the government of Pakistan, the international community's thinking is changing over Kashmir. He said India tried to mislead the international community as Modi Government's public relations stunt by inviting a specific group of parliamentarians of European Union, but several of them refused to accept the invitation, when they came to know that they will not be given free access to talk to local people and roam around freely. He said that EU Parliamentarian Chris Davis not only declined New Delhi's invitation, but observed that he is not prepared to take part in a PR stunt for the Modi Government and pretend that all is well. It is very clear that democratic principles are being subverted in Kashmir and the world needs to start taking notice.

7. Syed Fakhar Imam said minorities and lower class people in India are now want independence from the intolerant Indian Union. He said the current rulers of India are taking the country away from secularism and democracy.
 


Fakhar lashes out at Indian atrocities in IOK at the IPU - October 16, 2019

Islamabad Oct 16, 2019: In a strongly worded country statement to the General Assembly of the 141st Inter Parliamentary Union here in the Serbian capital of Belgrade, Pakistan’s Syed Fakhar Imam, has warned the global parliamentary community that the besieged Valley of the Indian Occupied Kashmir may endanger global peace beyond repair if not addressed comprehensively by the world.

The seasoned Chairman of the Kashmir Committee and Head of the Pak Parliamentary Delegation presented a comprehensive account of Indian atrocities in Kashmir and invited the world attention for meaningful actions according to message received from Belgrade, Serbia.

Fakhar also hailed the statement of the UK Parliamentary delegation’s head John Whittingdale, who enlisted Kashmir among the world flash points, meriting urgent attention.

“The inalienable right to self-determination of the people of Jammu & Kashmir as enshrined in the UN Security Council resolutions must be upheld. The international community must not remain a silent spectator to the plight of the innocent people of Kashmir”, said Fakhar reminding the world parliamentary body that “democracy cannot claim to be truly representative, if it fails to protect basic human rights of its people, especially the marginalized, women and children.”

While stressing  on all parliamentarians to send a fact finding mission from the platform of IPU to the besieged valley of Kashmir, to see for themselves the plight of innocent Kashmiris, Fakhar enlisted the continued denial of basic rights and acts of aggression by India in Kashmir.

“Around 100,000 Kashmiris have been martyred and thousands have gone missing. More than 100,000 children have been orphaned, 22,000 women have been widowed and over 11,000 women raped.

More than 8,000 unnamed mass graves have been discovered with thousands of victims of brutal Indian aggression.

The imposition of curfew in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) since August 5, arrest of Kashmiri leaders and suspension of communication services, and use of pellet guns and banned cluster ammunition targeting innocent civilians calls for condemnation by every humanitarian and democratic body including the IPU,” said Chairman of the Kashmir Committee.

He also reiterated Pakistan’s historical and principled stance that the Jammu and Kashmir dispute should be resolved only through dialogue and diplomacy and in accordance with the United Nations Security Council Resolutions and international law.

Reiterating Pakistan’s trust in multilateralism, Fakhar Imam opined that welfare goals of all states were common and together the global fraternity could achieve more. He termed regional peace and stability core to sustainable development and prosperity.

While stressing on the importance of taking everyone along, Fakhar said that democracies must be equal opportunity providers to women, youth and the marginalized to be truly inclusive. It is evident from history that women and youth can be true change agents, models of resilience and advocates of peace.

“The Government of Pakistan stands committed to the international Conventions and Treaties like CEDAW, ICCPR, Beijing Platform for Action, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that mandate women's empowerment through various actions.

Non-partisan forum of Pakistani Women Parliamentarians, the “Women’s Parliamentary Caucus” has also been at the forefront in highlighting the issues confronting women at the heart of the national development agenda and taking measures to empower women by active legislation and oversight,” said Fakhar.

Unfortunately, Indian governments instead of paying attention to holding a plebiscite, keep on lingering the issue in order to alter the demographic structure of IOK so that they can achieve a majority ignoring the fact that UN body just recently produced two reports on the human rights violations by the Indian side in IOK being a disputed territory and urged for sending a fact finding mission there.
