Islamabad, January 05, 2021 (PPI-OT): Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over are observing the Right to Self-Determination Day on Tuesday, with a renewed pledge to continue their liberation struggle till it reaches its ultimate goal. It was on 5th January in 1949 when the UN Security Council passed a resolution supporting the Kashmiris’ right to decide their future by themselves through UN-sponsored plebiscite.

The day will be marked by various activities, including rallies, seminars and conferences across the world to remind the UN that it must implement its relevant resolutions to settle the Kashmir dispute and save Kashmiris from the Indian brutalities. Meanwhile, Hurriyet leaders and organizations have called upon the United Nations and international community to fulfill their pledge by granting Kashmiris their basic right of self-determination.
