The National Assembly (NA) on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution expressing solidarity with the people of Indian-Occupied Kashmir (IOK) and condemning Indian atrocities in the region.

Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser chaired the session where Chairman of Special Committee on Kashmir Syed Fakhar Imam tabled the 19-point resolution.

The resolution demanded that the Indian government should lift the curfew which was placed after revoking IOK’s special status by repealing Article 370 on August 5 last year.

“India should reverse its black laws and should allow the human rights violation to be investigated,” said Imam.

It further called to immediately convene a special meeting on the occupied region by the Islamic Cooperation Organization (OIC) and deployment of a Military Observer Group. The resolution also demanded the release of Kashmiri leaders Shabbir Shah, Yasin Malik, Mir Wahi, Asiya Andrabi, Dr Qasim Faktu and Syed Ali Gilan.

Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari stressed that it is the first time that the world has accepted Pakistan’s narrative on IOK and it is due to the efforts made by Prime Minister Imran Khan.

“Prime Minister has exposed the Nazi-inspired ideology of RSS,” Mazari said. “It is also our success that the UN Security Council has held discussions on the lingering dispute and the EU [European Union] parliament prepared a draft resolution condemning in categorical terms the blatant human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.”

Deploring the atrocities unleashed by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir, Mazari said that the Indian occupation forces are ‘using rape as a weapon of war against the Kashmiri women.’

“The UN needs to fulfil its obligations towards the resolution of Kashmir dispute. If the world body can resolve the East Timor issue then why cannot Kashmir?” Mazari asked.

Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhary said that the “extremist government in India should not misinterpret our desire for peace as a sign of weakness.”

“We are fully prepared to respond to any aggression,” he said. “Indians should not forget the lesson taught by our air force to their force in broad daylight last year. They must still be feeling the heat of last year’s tea.”

Member National Assembly Abdul Qadir Patel said nothing good could be expected from Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he is the same person who carried out the massacre of Muslims in Gujarat. He added Modi’s politics is based on hatred and he is the enemy of Muslims.

NA Speaker Qaiser said the lower house has effectively raised the plight of oppressed Kashmiri people at different forums abroad. He said Kashmir dispute is an important point of our parliamentary diplomacy.

A Kashmiri delegation also witnessed the NA proceedings.
