Influence of Kashmir Day
Kashmir Day helps in recalling the world about the importance of making it easy the resolution of the Kashmir and ending Indian atrocities against the Kashmiri people
Every year since 1990, Pakistanis and people of Jammu and Kashmir observed Kashmir Day this year as well. The dedication behind the observance does not seem to die away any time as quickly as possible.
The objective of the observance has always been to guarantee the distressed valley that Pakistan still stands with them in their strive and self-determination.
Pakistan also wants to rouse the world mind, particularly of the primary world powers, that they should carry out their obligation to end Indian cruelties and human rights assault on the people of Jammu and to help settle the Kashmir dispute as per United Nations Security Council resolutions of 1948-49.
The observance of the Kashmir Day on 5 February every year has achieved significance in view of the fact the state terrorism has been let loose by India since 1989 in Jammu and Kashmir by stationing more than 700,000 strong security forces, to suppress the freedom struggle in Jammu and Kashmir, with a total immunity from persecution against the commitment of human rights violations on the people of Jammu and Kashmir by giving them a protection of draconian laws.
Owing to these laws, in reaction to perpetrating even the toughest Human rights breach like committing murder of innocent people and raping of women in the state, no judicial process can be inducted against any officer or soldier of India’s security forces stationed in the state.
Taking into the account the preceding, it can be wished that finally the international powers will have to comprehend that they have to persuade India that it has to settle the Jammu and Kashmir dispute on importance basis and in a proper way.
Supported by the big powers, India’s security forces have killed many young Kashmiri men in the false terrorist clashes and while shooting at peaceful processions and have abused many women just to hinder them from involving in the peaceful freedom battle.
At the same time, due to accusation of terrorism, Kashmiris have also become the victim of judicial murders out of the hands of India’s judiciary without enough evidence, like hanging of Afzal Guru, on account of his so called participation in the attack on the Indian Parliament on 13 December 2001, by saying that in the absence of a concrete evidence, he was being hanged to satisfy the conscience of the Indian people.
In Modi’s reign, human rights violations by Indian troops in Jammu and Kashmir and on the Muslims in India by the extremist Hindu organizations have increased several times.
On 5 February 2018, Kashmir Day in Pakistan was observed and functions were organized at government level and also by the think tanks and civil society and the officials and eminent persons expressed their views and assured the people of Jammu and Kashmir that Pakistan supported their just freedom struggle to get their right of self determination as per UNSC resolutions.
