MUZAFFARABAD: Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan has said that Indian like bifurcation of Kashmir and its merger with its union territories, claim over AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan and grants of domicile of Kashmir to millions of Indian Hindus are far more dangerous than the action of August 5 and "these will lead to a horrible future of Kashmiri people".
“Prepare for what the BJP-RSS regime plans to do in future. Its vile repertoire includes false flag operations, attack on Azad Kashmir, proxy wars. They can also try to drive a wedge between Arabs and Pakistan,” he said while addressing a group of Kashmiri doctors from across the world including Pakistan through a video link from Aiwan-e-Saddar in Muzaffarabad on Thursday.
He said that the Modi government is trying to manufacture a new political elite/class in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) so they can use them to brutalise Kashmir. They will be rejected by Kashmiris like the previous puppets were. A new political party has been launched in IOJ&K to get the Kashmiris killed by the Kashmiris and to consolidate India's illegitimate occupation of the disputed region.

"We are to inculcate unity in our rank and file and fight India inside Kashmir as well as every forum and every capital in the world," President Masood said, adding that India had waged a religious war which will not remain confined to Kashmir and India, but it will be fought in other countries.
Saying that there is no magic wand for winning freedom for Kashmir, the AJK president said, “It’s a game of political power, strategic leverage and economic prowess. Diplomacy will work but to an extent harking back to power dynamics."
He urged to breach communication barriers to put across and broadcast Kashmir’s true story.
The people of IOJ&K, he said, are living a miserable life under the worst siege and lockdown for the last nine months, and now India had clamped another lockdown under the garb of coronavirus to cause more problems for them.
"The Indian government had not adopted any strategy to save the lives of people in Occupied Kashmir from coronavirus pandemic."
The AJK president went on to say that the BJP-RSS regime had first declared a war against the Kashmiri people, and later took this war to the Muslims throughout India, and the Muslim world particularly the Arab nations have expressed sharp reaction over it. "Now voices have started rising from Dubai, Qatar, Kuwait and other Muslim states in support of the Indian Muslims and Kashmiri people."

The Arab awakening against Hindutva now includes solidarity with the Kashmiri Muslims who are being killed like sacrificial animals by predatory Indian occupation forces, he added.
While expressing thanks for the Pakistan Foreign Office for aggressively and effectively raising voice in support of the Kashmiri people amidst coronavirus, the AJK president said, "Our efforts on the global level should more intensify, and we must not let the UN Security Council to hold one or two informal sessions, and then to remain silent."
Saying that bilateral process with India has never produced desired results, he called for the involvement of Kashmiris and inclusion of the UN in diplomacy, even in third party mediation.
“If all stakeholders sit around a peace table, there could be conflict resolution and peace,” he added.
