Rawalpindi-A rally was taken out by religious leaders and seminary students on Wednesday in New Town area to express solidarity with innocent Kashmiris and to denounce use of cluster bombs by Indian forces against civilian population residing along with Line of Control.
The rally was led by head of Jamia Zia ul Uloom Pir Hassan Haseeb Uddin Shah and participated by Mufti Hanif Qureshi, Qari Waqar Chisthi and scores of seminary students who were changing slogans against Indian government and army for killing innocent Kashmiris.
The speakers, while addressing to participants, said that Indian government was pro-terrorist and the whole Muslim community stood with innocent Kashmiris. “Kashmiri people want freedom and right of self-determination but Indian Army is involved in pressing their voices by using brutal force,” The said.
The rally marched at 5th Road, Murree Road, Rehmanabad and 6th Road before culminating at the Jamia Zia Ul Uloom.
Meanwhile, patron-in-chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board and Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that by ending the special status of the Occupied Kashmir by inactivating Articles 370 and 35A, Modi had declared upon the world that India had no regard for the United Nations and its resolutions. Modi has put the world peace in danger and the UN should take military action against India for taking Saddam-like steps, he said.
The government and the military institutions are alert. India can commit aggression against Pakistan so as to divert world attention from her nefarious designs. Kashmiris are calling Pakistan for help therefore the government and the opposition should give up confrontation while diplomatic delegations should be sent comprising the government and opposition members, he said. The ambassadors present in foreign countries should work on war footing and ambassadors of other countries posted in Pakistan should also be apprised of heinous Indian steps, he added.
Agha Moosavi said that Nehru himself took the Kashmir issue to the United Nations and there were more than half a dozen resolutions on the right of self-determination and Kashmir had been recognised as a conflict area. He said that the day Trump had offered mediation to the Prime Minister Imran Khan; we had said the same day that it was a big eye-wash.
The TNFJ chief said that India had played this heinous game of ending the special status of the Occupied Kashmir at a time when the world attention was focused on Afghanistan issue and on luring Taliban into talks for this purpose. But, he added, the world should keep in mind that neither Palestinians retracted on such statements of Netanyahu nor the struggle of Kashmiris could be sabotaged through these tactics. He said that Modi himself accepted on the statement given by Trump that it was a conflict area and was a matter between the two countries and they would not accept mediation from anyone.
Despite these facts, he added, this Indian step is an open act of aggression.
