Firdous asks opposition to not politicize Kashmir issue
August 6, 2019
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan has said on Tuesday that the opposition should avoid politics on the Indian-held Jammu Kashmir (IHK) issue. Speaking to the journalists outside Parliament House, the special assistant said, “We should take Kashmir issue beyond the politics. It should voice with the government in condemnation of the recent Indian acts.” “The whole nation is united on this matter as Kashmir is an important part of Pakistan. Will continue political, moral and diplomatic support to the people of Kashmir,” Firdous Ashiq Awan reiterated. She also mentioned that the parliament will send across a strong message through its joint session that the country stands with Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination in IHK. Firdous Ashiq Awan said the ongoing two-day special parliamentary session on the situation in Occupied Kashmir and India's move to revoke Article 370 should give a united stance of Pakistan. She further said Prime Minister Imran Khan is contacting various world leaders on the developments in India on Kashmir. She said Pakistan will forcefully present the case of Kashmir at every relevant international forum. The special assistant said the Indian government’s move of revoking Article 370 is disrespect and violation of the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions on the Kashmir issue. She said the UN should seek answer from India for this act to ensure protection of its resolutions on the issue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-zRvHmqofQ A day earlier, the Indian government rushed through a presidential decree to scrap a special status for Indian-held Jammu Kashmir, hours after imposing a major security clampdown in the region.
