Hurriyet leaders hail Nawaz Sharif’s remarks on Kashmir

Srinagar, September 29, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, Hurriyet leaders have hailed the stand taken by Pakistani Prime Minister, Mohammad Nawaz Sharif at the United Nations for the resolution of longstanding Kashmir dispute as per the relevant resolutions of the World Body and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

Hurriyet leaders including Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Hakeem Abdul Rasheed, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Bilal Siddiqi, Zamruda Habib, Advocate Muhammad Shafi Reshi, Ghulam Ahmad Gulzar and Molvi Bashir Ahmad in their joint statement issued in Srinagar said, “The position taken by the Prime Minister of Pakistan reflects the position taken by the forum led by Syed Ali Gilani.”

The leaders said, the state of Pakistan and the forum are on same page. “The forum led by Syed Ali Gilani is the amalgam of all pro-freedom parties who have faith in resolution of Kashmir dispute as per the UN resolutions,” they said. “Pakistan, India, OIC and international community should understand the fact that pro-freedom voices are united under the leadership of Syed Gilani and are representing the aspirations of oppressed Kashmiris,” the statement added.

The leaders condemned the suspension of communication links and detention of Hurriyet leaders in the occupied territory on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha. Meanwhile, Dukhtaran-e-Millat in a statement in Srinagar also appreciated Nawaz Sharif for raising the Kashmir dispute during his meeting with the UN Chief, Ban Ki-moon.
