Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry has said that early peaceful solution to the Kashmir dispute is vital for sustainable peace in the region, as the lingering dispute has become a flashpoint between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.

He stated this while talking to the media at Jinnah House on Thursday.

The AJK president said that the sacrifices of thousands of innocent Kashmiri martyrs would bear fruit. He strongly condemned the Indian army’s aggression in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) as well as the revocation of the occupied region’s special status.

Barrister Sultan added that the Kashmiri people in Pakistan were united for the Kashmir cause, saying that India had unleashed the worst brutalities to continue its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.

He also expressed grave concern over large-scale human rights violations, custodial killings and genocide of the innocent Kashmiri people by the occupant Indian Army in the Held Valley.

He further said that the freedom was the basic right of the people of occupied IIOJK and none could deny them their right.

Kashmiris want to be part of Pakistan, he added.

The AJK president said the entire Pakistani nation and Kashmiris were committed to the Kashmir cause and Prime Minister Imran Khan had presented the case of IIOJK in the most effective manner at every forum including the United Nations.

He said the basic purpose of his visit to Sialkot was to lay the foundation stone of the Jammu martyrs monument, adding that a large number of Jammu refugees were residing in Sialkot.

After being elected the president of AJK, “I visited Europe, UK and United States to raise the issue of IIOJK at the international level and to shake the conscience of the international community,” he said.

The whole world is against Modi and stands with Kashmiris, he added.

Earlier, AJK President Sultan Mehmood addressed PTI workers at Jinnah House. He said the PTI government would bring about change according to PM Imran’s vision.
