Islamabad: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the right to self-determination is an inalienable right of the people of Jammu & Kashmir and urged the United Nations to ensure a free, fair and transparent plebiscite for the people of the valley.
In his message on the occasion of the Right to Self-Determination day for the people of J&K in line with the resolution adopted by the United Nations Commission on India and Pakistan (UNCIP) on January 5, 1949, the PPP Chairman said that people of Indian Occupied Kashmir have been subjected to inhuman Indian atrocities since seven decades. “The silence of the international community over the brutal killings and torture at the hands of Indian occupying forces is seldom taken notice by the international community, which has disappointed the free people of the world,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that former Prime Ministers Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto had internationalised the Kashmir issue through political and diplomatic struggles and assured the Kashmiri people that PPP would continue to raise its voice for them at every available forum.
He expressed solidarity with the people of held Kashmir adding that issue of the held valley was an integral part of the PPP mission and the Party has the strongest political base in the Azad Jammu & Kashmir.
