05 February, 2018
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Sunday said the people of Kashmir were undergoing the worst form of aggression from the occupying Indian forces in the Held Kashmir and urged the United Nations and the world community to investigate the reports of use of chemical weapons and pellet guns against Kashmiris. In his message on the eve of Kashmiri Day, the PPP chairman said that Kashmiris have been waging a peaceful movement for their legitimate right to self-determination for last 70 years, losing thousands of innocent lives and impairing and maiming of large number of population. He pointed out that it was Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto who declared February 5 as Kashmir Day to fillip the issue of Held Kashmir and pay tribute to those Kashmiris who embraced martyrdom and offered sacrifices during the untiring struggle.
He said the special parliamentary committee on Kashmir, also formed by Benazir Bhutto in her second tenure, will be mobilised and activated to its full potential after PPP wins the next general elections. Bilawal said that he was from the third generation of the PPP’s founder which continues to extend all possible moral and diplomatic support to the legitimate movement of Kashmiris for their inalienable right to self-determination.
Both former chairpersons of the PPP and prime ministers always presented the case of Kashmir aggressively on the international forums, he added. The PPP chairman pledged that all moves by the Modi government to put the issue of Kashmir on backburner would be foiled through highlighting the worst violations of human rights of the people of Held Kashmir at the global level.
