NUML observes Kashmir Day


The liberty and freedom with which the Kashmir Day is being celebrated in the federal capital of Pakistan by Kashmiri people is a great moment for our Kashmiri brothers and sisters in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK), said AJK Education Minister Mian Abdul Waheed on Friday. He was addressing a seminar on Kashmir Day which was held on the National University of Modern Languages campus.
Waheed while speaking to a great number of students and faculty members of different departments of the university said that Kashmiri people had been fighting a war against a despotic power for the last 64 years and sacrificed 84,000 lives for their freedom.
“Even today, the morale of Kashmiri people is as high as it was in July 1947 and they have managed to keep this tradition of sacrifices alive only because they were supported and backed by valiant Pakistani armed forces and people”, he observed
He said the Pakistani and Kashmiri people would continue to raise their voice against atrocities of India in Kashmir and they would keep stressing upon the international comity to play its role to convince India to give Kashmiri people the right of self determination in accordance with resolutions passed by the UN.
He was of the view that the Kashmiri people and government had always admired the stance taken by successive governments of Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.
He went on to say that the love of Kashmiri people for Pakistanis was reflected even through the elements of nature. “Our rivers stream down to Pakistan and wind blows down to Pakistan,” he added.
Meanwhile, students from different departments also made speeches on the Kashmir Day and reiterated that Kashmir was the jugular vein of Pakistan.
Earlier upon his arrival, Mian Abdul Waheed was received by NUML Director General Brigadier Azam Jamal and then he also met NUML Rector Maj General Masood Hasan.
