LAHORE - The Nation Editor-in-Chief and Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust Chairman Majid Nizami called for stepped up efforts to get Kahsmir issue resolved.
“The dispute with India can be solved either by acting upon the UN resolutions or by struggle,” he said while presiding over a special sitting at Aiwan-e-Karkunan Tehrik-e-Pakistan in connection of Black Day on Wednesday.
The NPT and Pakistan Movement Workers’ Trust jointly organised the sitting.
Gen (r) Zulfiqar Ali Khan, Molana Shafi Josh, Dr Ejaz Butt, Brig (R) Imtiaz Ahmad, Dr Ahsan Masaud, Syed Naseebullah Gardezi, Shahzad Ahmad Raja, Farooq Khan Azad, Dr Farzana Naseer, Ghulam Abbas Mir, Shahid Rasheed spoke on the occasion while Mian Farooq Altaf, Begum Safia Ishaq, teachers, students and people from different walks of life attended the event.
Majid Nizami said: “The issue has been longing for the past 66 years and no serious struggle has so far been waged to get it resolved.”
Majid Nizami said Quaid-e-Azam termed Kashmir a jugular vein of Pakistan. He said the Quaid ordered the then army chief to enter army into Kashmir and get it liberated who had refused to obey the Quaid’s order. “America, Israel and India are united to harm Muslims everywhere and the UNO worked under the US influence,” Nizami held.
Begum Suraya, wife of former AJK president KH Khursheed, regretted that the rulers had forgotten Quaid’s saying on Kashmir instead they were busy saving their personal interests. She, however, lauded the efforts of Majid Nizami.
Other speakers also condemned the Indian aggression in Jammu and Kashmir. They said that South Asian peace was directly connected with the burning issue of Kashmir, adding the acceptable solution to the Kashmiri nation revolved around the UN resolutions passed in 1948 and 1949. However, they regretted that India was reluctant to resolve the conflict and she was increasing its cruelty in the occupied region day-by-day.
