WASHINGTON: Members of Parliament Senator Mushahid Hussain and Dr. Shazra Mansab Ali Khan, who are currently Special Envoys of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, have apprised community members and diaspora about the current situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir and brutal human rights violations by Indian security forces.
While speaking at eh Pakisani embassy, both briefed the audience about their extensive meetings with think tanks and various officials of US State Department promoting awareness about the latest freedom movement in Indian occupied Kashmir which is indigenous, popular, spontaneous and widespread.
Dr. Shazra Mansab Ali said that Kashmir is the core dispute between India & Pakistan which cannot be denied under any circumstances, but rather it is an internationally recognized disputed territory as per UNSC resolutions.
She demanded a right to fair and free plebiscite to ascertain will of the Kashmiri people. She further mentioned that all the political parties are united in raising voice for innocent Kashmiris.
Senator Mushahid Hussain asserted that Kashmir dispute is not at all about territory but about giving innocent Kashmiris their due rights who are suffering in the hands of oppressive Indian forces.
He added that situation has become worse following the extra-judicial killing of a young Kashmiri freedom fighter Burhan Wani on 8 July which infused new vigour among young Kashmiri youth.
While highlighting US role in helping oppressed Muslims of Kosovo & Bosnia, Mushahid Hussain called upon US to mediate for peaceful resolution of Kashmir issue as per aspirations of innocent Kashmiris.
Both the Envoys urged Pakistani and Kashmiri communities to play an extremely important role in this regard.
