India cannot suppress legitimate struggle of Kashmiris, says Kaira

ISLAMABAD   -  Advisor to the Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira Friday said In­dia cannot suppress the legitimate struggle of the people of Indian Ille­gally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). 

Addressing a press conference, he said Pakistan will not allow India to succeed in its nefarious designs to turn the Muslim majority into the mi­nority in the IIOJK. Flanked by Kash­miri leaders, he said Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari presented the Kashmir cause in a befitting manner at all international forums even dur­ing his visit to India. 

The Advisor to Prime Minister said the Kashmir dispute was not an issue between Hindus and Muslims, rather it was a just freedom cause of the people residing over there. 

Kaira regretted that India is giving the impression that Kashmir is an issue between Hindus and Muslims through propaganda. 

He said that in that regard, the res­olution will be presented in the Na­tional Assembly session on Monday. 

“We are proud of our friendship with China”, he said, adding that Chi­na has also expressed concerns over the Indian move of August 5. 

Farooq Rahmani, leader Kashmir Council said that the Modi govern­ment was currently in trouble and feared that it may take steps beyond August 5 for winning the elections. 

Rahmani said according to the United Nations Charter, Kashmir has a separate identity and India’s claims on Kashmir were false.
