Kashmiris observing right to self-determination day
SRINAGAR (92 News) – Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over are observing Right to Self-Determination Day, Friday (January 5), with renewed pledge to continue their liberation struggle till it reaches its ultimate goal.
The UN Security Council passed a resolution on 5th January 1949 recognizing basic human rights of Kashmiri people and promising to grant right to self-determination to Kashmiris through an independent and transparent plebiscite.
The puppet authorities prevented the All Parties Hurriyat Conference from holding a seminar in Srinagar. However, the Indian authorities deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength outside the residence-cum-office of Syed Ali Gilani to stop people from entering the venue.
The Indian authorities had also put Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, Bilal Siddiqui, Syed Imtiyaz Haider, Muhammad Yasin Attai and Molvi Bashir Ahmed under house arrest or in custody.
In Azad Kashmir and Pakistan, different political, social and religious organizations have chalked out a number of programs, seminars and rallies to draw the world’s attention towards solution of the longstanding Kashmir dispute.
