All political and military leadership are united on Kashmir issue, says FM


ISLAMABAD, Aug 4: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Tuesday said that the Pakistani nation, including the political and military leadership, had the same stance on the Kashmir issue.

Addressing the All Parties Conference on the Kashmir situation, here at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs the Foreign Minister Qureshi said Pakistan had exposed the ongoing human rights violations in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) at every international forum.
He mentioned that India tried to change the demographic ratio in the IIOJK by amending the domicile laws, terming it a “clear violation of international law”.

Qureshi said following the footsteps of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the Bharatiya Janta Party government because of its Hindutva thinking had sowed the seeds of hatred in the hearts of Kashmiris and minorities living in India.

He stressed that India could not demoralize unarmed Kashmiris despite continuous torture and imprisonment. Today, the real face of the Indian government has been exposed to the world, he said.

The foreign minister said Pakistan would continue to support its Kashmiri brothers until they get their due right to self-determination.
