KARACH: President of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI), Sindh Chapter, Zubair Khan has said that any move to step back from the core issue of Kashmir would be tantamount to committing suicide. Those involved in the withdrawal of UN resolutions on Kashmir would be declared traitors by the history.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, he said that thousands of soldiers and civilians had lost their lives for the Kashmir cause during the three wars imposed by India.
“Pakistan has adhered to the principled stand on Kashmir that the Kashmiri people must be granted the right to self-determination. Quaid-e-Azam had declared Kashmir as the jugular vein without which integrity of Pakistan would bear no meanings,” he added.
Zubair Khan said Pakistan Army got full realization of the pivotal importance of Kashmir but a few generals tend to ignore the ground realities. “Their ignorance would make them pay a lot but after withdrawing the plebiscite demand for the freedom of Kashmiri people and their desire to see Kashmir as an integral part of Pakistan would burry all these sacrifices,” he added. He said India has already occupied main river outlets emerging from the hills of Kashmir besides construction of Biglihar dam was a current example of Indian tyranny.
“It would be a betrayal of the sacrifices of Kashmiri martyrs as the valley has turned red with their blood. Hundreds of innocent Kashmiri women had been raped by the Indian occupation forces which also martyred hundreds of innocent children,” Zubair said.
He further said that India had never shown any flexibility over the core issue of Kashmir, “but it is our General who is in a great hurry extending one after another soft offers to the occupants”.
He said it was out of sense why Pakistan was thinking to step back from the UN resolutions. “These are the Kashmiris who have the right to choose the option that suits them well and the history has taught Pakistan that Kashmiris have been struggling not only for their rights but for the cause of Pakistan as well,” he added.
