Lahore: The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has organised a seminar on the freedom movement for Kashmir here on Saturday.
The seminar titled "Freedom Movement of Kashmir and Qazi Hussain Ahmad' was addressed by Syed Ali Geelani, Sardar Masood Khan, Fareed Paracha, Mian Maqsood, Aif Luqman Qazi, Orya Maqbool Jan, Ahamad Rasheed Turabi and others. People from different sections of society attended the event.
The struggle of Qazi Huassain for the Kashmir cause will be remembered forever. Qazi felt pain of Kashmiris and expressed it with bravery before the whole world, said the speakers. Syed Ali Geelani and Sardar Masood Khan addressed the participants through video link.
Abdul Rasheed Turbai said the youth of Kashmir was convinced that Jihad was necessary for freedom of Kashmir so they chose the path of jihad. Qazi patronised the Aikhawane Mujahedeen and Kashmiri Maujahdeen, he added.
Mian Maqasood said the Pakistani rulers could not play their role effectively in the movement. Kashmiris want to be part of Pakistan.
Syed Ali Geelani thanked Pakistan for unconditional support. He urged more role of Pakistan’s rulers. Freedom is the right of Kashmiris, he said. He urged the United Nations to play its role to free Kashmir from the Indian occupation.
The JI leaders reiterated the support of the Pakistani nation to Kashmiris' struggle for their right to self-determination, saying that the longstanding issue should be resolved in the light of United Nations resolutions. They paid rich tributes to Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Geelani for his continuous struggle spanning decades for the independence of Kashmir from the Indian occupation.
