Fifty seven days of lockdown in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) has converted the valley into a virtual jail and the situation in the Kashmir valley was at the verge of a human catastrophe, said National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser. He asked for Malaysian support for the resolution of Kashmir issue in accordance with the aspiration of people of Kashmir and United Nations (UN) Resolutions. Qaiser was talking to Malaysian House of Representatives Speaker His Excellency Tan Sri Dato Mohamad Ariff Bin Md Yusuf, during a meeting held in Parliament House, on Tuesday. IHK is the unfinished agenda of the partition plan of the Sub-Continent and leaving the Kashmir dispute unresolved had brought the peace of the region at stake, said Qaiser. Continued denial of the due right to Kashmiri people for decades and the recent unilateral succession of IHK with Indian mainland had exposed the democratic outlook of India, he said. The Malaysian speaker agreed with Qaiser terming Kashmir issue a flashpoint and an obstacle in bringing peace in the region. The issue must be resolved in accordance with the UN Security Council Resolutions and international commitments, he said. Malaysia and Pakistan shared multiple commonalities which made them closer to each other, Yusuf said. Recent interaction between the prime ministers of Pakistan and Malaysia had further cemented the bilateral ties and cooperation. Qaiser said that the visit of the Malaysian speaker would open new vistas of parliamentary cooperation between two brotherly countries. Our bilateral relations have been historically tied together with deep-rooted friendship, brotherhood and good will, he said. It was heartening to note the support both countries had been historically extending to each other on key issues at various international and parliamentary platforms. Cooperation was evident from the election of Ms Shandana Gulzar Khan as Chairperson CPA CWP held in Kampala, Uganda, he said.
