The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan has said that talks with India would amount to sitting on the same table with a butcher who has slaughtered Kashmiris’ children, and endorsing what India has been doing in occupied Kashmir. “The UN resolutions on Kashmir are the basis of our struggle, and the question does not arise of deviating from these resolutions,” he declared. Addressing a function held here under the auspices of Azad Jammu and Kashmir University to mark the founding day of Azad Kashmir government, he said, “We are not opposed to dialogue with India, but the dialogue can be held under UN supervision and with the involvement of the Kashmiris only when India gives up its war hysteria, halts massacre of Kashmiris, reverses all actions taken after August 5 last year, ceases its military operations to create an environment conducive for talks.” The AJK president said, “We are able to celebrate our founding day on this side of the Line of Control today because of the sacrifices our elders had offered to liberate this territory and this by virtue of these sacrifices that the Kashmir issue is still alive.” He said that it is a historical fact that freedom fighters had been knocking at the doors of Srinagar in October 1947 when India with the nexus of Sheikh Abdullah and Maharaja Hari Singh militarily invaded Kashmir. He added that the whole Kashmiri nation has been bearing the brunt of this high treason of Sheikh Abdullah and Maharaja for the last 73 years. Sardar Masood Khan warned India not to compel the young generation to follow the footprints of their elders to take up weapons to rid the occupied Kashmir of its illegitimate occupation. He said that accession to India had never been an option for the Kashmiris. On the contrary, they wanted to accede to Pakistan in 1947, and they are imbibed with the same spirit even today. The AJK president said that no power on the earth can weaken the bonds of Kashmiris with Pakistan. This is evident from the fact that India had used every means to win the hearts and minds of the Kashmiris during the last seven decades, and when it was convinced that the Kashmiris were not ready to accept its slavery, it decided to eliminate the whole Kashmiri nation. The AJK president called upon the international community to take notice of the Indian oppressive and repressive actions in occupied Kashmir which it had taken in violation of the UN resolutions on Kashmir. Protest: The EU-Pak Friendship staged a protest outside the Indian Embassy in Frankfurt, Germany, against Indian atrocities in the Indian Illegal occupation in Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K). According to a statement issued here on Sunday, a large number of Kashmiri community members participated in the demonstration. Speaking on the occasion, President of EU-Pakistan Friendship Federation Germany, Ansar Mahmood Butt and other speakers demanded of the international community to give Kashmiris the right to self-determination. They said that the extremist and fascist Modi government has imposed curfew in the occupied valley after its illegal action of revocation of Article 370 and 35-A in August last year. They vowed that Indian atrocities would be exposed all over Europe. The speakers demanded the United Nations and other international organizations to play their role for ending the illegal occupation of Indian forces in the held territory and give Kashmiris the right to self-determination.
