Kashmiris observing right to self-determination day today
ISLAMABAD - Among other resolutions passed by the United Nations, a resolution on Indian-Occupied Kashmir regarding right to self-determination has been relegated to the cold storage as it is yet to be implemented despite the passage of over six decades.

It was January 5, 1949 when the United Nations Security Council approved a resolution supporting the Kashmiris’ right to decide their future by themselves through UN-sponsored plebiscite.

Today, Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the globe observing the Right to Self-Determination Day, renewing their resolve to continue freedom fight until the goal is achieved.

Special prayers, rallies and protest would be organised by the Kashmiris around the world, while people of Pakistan will also express solidarity with the natives of occupied land.

In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference was set to hold a seminar titled “Resolution of Kashmir dispute in the light of right to self-determination” on Thursday.

But the puppet government disallowed them from get to gather and deployed Indian forces outside the house of PHC Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani.

Indian troops, in their unabated acts of state terrorism, have martyred 94,877 innocent Kashmiris, including 7,099 in custody since January 1989 till December 10, 2.017.

A report released by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service on the occasion of the World Human Rights Day, today, revealed that these killings rendered 22,862 women widowed and 107,674 children orphaned.

It said that Indian troops and police subjected at least 8,000 people to custodial disappearance in the period.

When India and Pakistan became independent on August 1947, it was generally assumed that Kashmir, as an adjoining state with a predominantly Muslim population, would accede to Pakistan.

Its ruler, the Maharaja, however, on October 27, 1947, acceded to India through an improper and illegal instrument of accession and on the same day, India winched its forces to Srinagar and occupied the valley.
