Kashmiris observed Right to Self-Determination Day

ISLAMABAD:Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and world over observed Right to Self-Determination Day on Thursday with a renewed pledge to continue their liberation struggle till it reaches its logical conclusion.

Call for observance of the day was given by All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC). According to reports, the day was marked by various activities including protest demonstrations, rallies, seminars and conferences in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan and in all major capitals of the world.

The United Nations was reminded that it must implement its relevant resolutions to settle the Kashmir dispute to save the Kashmiris from the Indian brutalities. It was January 5, 1949 when the UN Security Council passed a resolution supporting the Kashmiris’ right to decide their future by themselves under a UN-supervised plebiscite. This resolution provides the base for settlement of the lingering dispute, but India’s continued intransigent attitude has been an impediment in the way of achieving this objective.
