AJK PM urges Diaspora to highlight Kashmir dispute at global level


The Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Sardar Abdul Qayyum Niazi has urged the Kashmiri Diaspora community to expedite its efforts to highlight Kashmir at international level.

Sardar Abdul Qayyum Niazi was talking to Kashmir Council EU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, who called on him at Kashmir House in Islamabad.

Speaking on the occasion, the AJK Prime Minister, while referring to the worsening political and human rights situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, said, “At a time when the entire leadership of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, human rights activists and independent journalists have been imprisoned by the Modi government, the onus of keeping world abreast of the situation in IIOJK lies with Kashmiri Diaspora community”.

“It is our shared responsibility to present the Kashmir case effectively at international level and foil the Indian government’s nefarious designs aimed at silencing the voices of Kashmiris”, he said. It is high time that the Kashmiri Diaspora community should strengthen its ties with the EU parliamentarians, seek their support to create an environment whereby the world can be persuaded to take effective measures to hold India accountable for the war crimes its forces have been committing in the occupied territory, he added.
