Go for referendum in IoK and you’ll get exposed, Qureshi challenges India

Go for referendum in IoK and you’ll get exposed, Qureshi challenges India
August 19, 2019
MULTAN (92 News) – Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday gave an open challenge to India to go for referendum in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir to see extreme hatred among innocent Kashmiris and unpopular Modi regime. “Indain PM Narendra Modi first lift curfew imposed illegally in the violence-hit valley and then see the wrath of Kashmiris in streets,” he said while speaking to reporters in Multan. He said the global voice is pointing finger on India for suppressing the freedom of Kashmiris, adding Muslims and other minorities in the biggest democracy in the country are feeling unsecured. The FM suggested PM Narendra Modi to end curfew in occupied Kashmir and hold a referendum in Srinagar after releasing Hurriyet leadership. Qureshi said international community had declared Kashmir issue as disputed territory and despite Indian preventive efforts, UN Security Council discussed this issue. “Indian unilateral action on occupied Kashmir status and Defence Minister’s statement have put the peace of region at stake.” The Foreign Minister said people of occupied Kashmir are facing severe hardships like situation due to continued blockade and curfew for the last 14 days. He said Modi government has buried the Nehru and Gandhi's India by revoking special status of occupied Kashmir, adding Pakistan would continue to support Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination. “People of occupied Kashmir are facing severe hardships like situation due to continued blockade and curfew for the last 14 days.” Continued lockdown of entire IoK population condemned Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says comments made by the Indian Defence Minister about nuclear policy are reflective of the predicament that India finds itself in, after its illegal and unilateral actions imperiling peace and security in the region and beyond. In a statement, he said equally condemnable is the completely indefensible lock-down of the entire population in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, that has gone on for two weeks, and continues to deepen the dire humanitarian tragedy as reported by the international human rights organizations and the international media. He said world community, including the United Nations Security Council, have taken cognizance of this utterly untenable situation. The Foreign Minister said as for the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, Pakistan’s position is based on UN Charter principles and international law and remains unchanged. He said the Jammu and Kashmir dispute is to be decided on the basis of the UN Security Council Resolutions and in accordance with the wishes of the Kashmiri people.
