Pakistan to continue diplomatic, political support to Kashmiris: Firdous
August 5, 2019
ISLAMABAD (92 News)- Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that Pakistan will continue extending moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmiris until they achieve their right to self-determination under the UN Security Council resolutions. In a series of tweets on Monday, the special assistant said that India must not forget that the nation understanding struggle for its just cause cannot be defeated by any gun, tyranny or conspiracy. She said the international community will have to prove its respect for democracy by supporting Kashmiris. Firdous Ashiq Awan said OIC's support to the people of occupied Kashmir for their right to self-determination is another defeat of tyrant and law violator India. The special assistant said expression of solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris by the Indian atrocities is a message for the international community that it should play an immediate and effective role for resolution of the Kashmir dispute. She said OIC has testified that Indian army is using cluster ammunition against innocent citizens along the Line of Control, and the United Nations, peace loving nations and the international community should take its notice.
Indian govt decides to revoke Article 370 in Occupied Kashmir
On the other hand, Indian Minister for Home Affairs Amit Shah has announced in Rajya Sabha that the government has decided to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution which grants special status to Indian-held Jammu Kashmir (IHK). Amit Shah moved a resolution in the Rajya Sabha that all clauses of Article 370 will not be applicable to Occupied Kashmir. Amit Shah announced in the Rajya Sabha that Article 370, which accords special status to the IHK, will be revoked from the day of the President’s assent. After Amit Shah proposed that the regulation under Article 370 will not be applicable after Presidential nod, the Rajya Sabha witnessed massive uproar with the opposition slamming the Centre over the move. The opposition denied to accept the decision of government and harshly reacted on the bill.
