Islamabad: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Human Rights and Women Empowerment, Mushaal Hussein Mullick, has reaffirmed her unwavering commitment to vigorously advocate for the rights of the oppressed people in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) on the global stage.
Addressing the Pehchan Pakistan Conference, organized by the Youth Association of Pakistan (YAP) at a private university in Islamabad, Mushaal Hussein Mullick emphasized that Kashmiris have been striving for the past seven decades to attain their fundamental right to self-determination, as promised by the United Nations.
She pointed out that despite India’s deployment of over a million troops in occupied Jammu and Kashmir, it has failed miserably in suppressing the voice of the Kashmiri people seeking freedom. Mushaal Hussein Mullick shed light on the harsh reality of the draconian laws imposed by Indian authorities and the dire conditions faced by Kashmiris. She also praised the foresight of Kashmiri leaders, Syed Ali Gillani and her husband, Yasin Malik, who endured imprisonment in Tihar Jail, Delhi, India. Furthermore, she expressed gratitude to the Hurriyat leaders for their tireless efforts towards the self-determination of Jammu and Kashmir.
Mushaal Hussein Mullick drew attention to the alarming situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, where women and children face disgrace, and youth and other freedom-loving individuals endure severe torture. She stressed that political, religious, and social liberties are nonexistent in the region, and human rights violations by Indian forces are a distressing routine.
The Special Assistant on Human Rights urged the people of Pakistan and the Pakistani Diaspora to stand in solidarity with the Kashmiri people in their pursuit of self-determination, as outlined in the United Nations Security Council resolutions and in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri population.
Abdul Qadir, Chairman of the Youth Association of Pakistan, extended a warm welcome to all the attendees and underscored the pivotal role of youth in various facets of the country. He highlighted the transformative journey of today’s youth and the new responsibilities they must shoulder.
Raja Najabat Hussain, Chairman of the Jammu Kashmir Self Determination Movement International, reaffirmed his four-decade commitment to the Kashmir dispute. He shared that the Government of Pakistan had honored him with the “Sitara-e-Pakistan” award in recognition of his significant contributions. He also shed light on India’s controversial abrogation of the region’s special status on August 5, 2019, which led to the declaration of Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh as union territories.
Abdul Mateen Sheikh, Information Secretary of APHC-AJK chapter, conveyed the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, who fervently desire to join Pakistan.
Dr. Talat Kausar, currently residing in the United States, highlighted his contributions to the betterment of Pakistan and his journey from an identity crisis to proudly becoming a “Pakistani National” recognized globally.
