India cannot win conventional war against Pakistan: AJK president

Pakistan is fully prepared to militarily respond to unlawful actions of fascist Modi regime, says Sardar Masood

MUZAFFARABAD:

Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan has said that Pakistan is fully prepared to militarily respond to unlawful actions of the fascist Modi regime in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) and to any aggression by India against the liberated territory.

"India is bound to face the humiliating defeat at the hands of Pakistan in a conventional war," he said in a message to a special video conference organised by Jammu and Kashmir Right to Self Determination Movement International (JKSDM) marking the Kashmir Martyrs Day on Tuesday. The state president said, “Today, we are observing Martyrs Day when the BJP-RSS regime of India has imposed a ban on the commemoration of this day across IOJ&K to stifle the voice of the people. Today, we are marking the Kashmir Martyrs’ Day in the most tragic circumstances... the occupation authorities have cancelled the commemoration of this day in Srinagar and the entire occupied territory. We strongly condemn this decision by New Delhi to muzzle the voices of Kashmiris”.

India, he said, has abolished the special status of the occupied territory, and is now poised to eliminate the Muslim identity of the region. He added that India had imposed the black domicile laws, and is rapidly taking steps to settle the Indian citizens in the held territory so as to change the demography of the territory. President Masood appealed to the international community to support the legitimate and just struggle of Kashmiri people, and play its role to dismantle the BJP-RSS terror machine.

"Kashmiri people have kept their eyes on the world parliaments, civil societies and the United Nations, hence, the international community instead of offering mere lip service should take concrete steps in order to defuse the volcanic situation prevailing in Kashmir," he maintained.

The AJK president said that India had satanic designs to eliminate the entire population of Kashmir to resolve this issue once and for all, and it is high time for the international community to intervene and protect the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

While directly addressing the UK and the European MPs attending the video conference, Sardar Masood Khan expressed his deep gratitude to them for supporting Kashmiris’ right of self-determination and raising voice for their human rights. He urged MPs to approach their respective governments, the United Nations and the other multilateral institutions to solicit their support for preventing India from changing demography of their motherland.

"The settlement of non-state subjects of India in the disputed territory is the violation of not only the Fourth Geneva Convention and the established international laws, but the new laws enacted by India on the pattern of Nuremberg laws of Nazi Germany, are considered war crimes,” he emphasised.

The state president maintained that in the changed scenario, responsibilities of Pakistani and Kashmiri communities have enormously grown. "It’s now or never," he remarked. Kashmiri expatriates, he said, should encourage lawmakers of their respective constituencies to highlight in both inside and outside the parliaments, the crimes against humanity being committed by the Modi regime in occupied Kashmir, and compel their respective governments to hold India accountable for the worst human rights violations and its crimes against humanity.
