Kashmiris to jointly encounter Modi gimmicks: AJK PM

MIRPUR: Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan said on Monday the people of Jammu and Kashmir would have to collectively encounter the gimmicks of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi especially in the most critical conditions prevailing in the curfew-riddled held Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing a public gathering in connection with the electioneering of his ruling party’s candidate for November 24 by-election to Mirpur city constituency, he said the hardliner Modi had badly abused all the international norms and commitments for the sake of perpetuating his forced and unlawful occupation of the internationally acknowledged disputed Indian held part of Jammu Kashmir state.

The AJK premier made it clear that the map of the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir was comprising over 84,000 square miles of historical and geographical land carved by the people of the state, adding the so-called maps presented by Modi had no validity and acceptance at either side of the ceasefire line and the rest of the world.

Haider also strongly condemned a serving Indian Army general’s recent statement of committing molestation of Muslim women in occupied Kashmir in response to the alleged forced expulsion of the pundits from the turbulent valley. He said Kashmiri Muslims had not forced pundits to leave the valley. He described it as a false propaganda to defame the innocent population of the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley.

The AJK premier also called upon the Muslim Ummah to rally round a platform to perform collective role to encounter the anti-Muslim propaganda by the anti-Islam forces in various parts of the world especially in view of the fact that Muslims world over were being branded extremists ever since 9 / 11.
