Kashmir struggle sacred, non-negotiable: FM Qureshi

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has reaffirmed Pakistan’s commitment to continue to extend full support to the Kashmiri people, saying that the Kashmir struggle was sacred and non-negotiable

“Pakistan will not let anyone take any Kashmir from the Kashmiris,” the foreign minister said while addressing a ceremony in Islamabad today (Wednesday).

He further said that Pakistan’s ultimate objective remains the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute as per the wishes of the Kashmiri people and relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

Commending the resilience of Kashmiri people in the face of Indian atrocities, FM Qureshi expressed the confidence that the Kashmiri spirit will ultimately triumph.

He also appreciated the increasing international denunciation of India’s brutal campaign in Illegally Occupied Kashmir (IoK). However, he said, there is still a lot to be done for the resolution of Kashmir dispute, which is a pre requisite for durable peace and stability in the region.

“India wanted to change the demographic structure of the territory in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions and the international law,” he pointed out, adding that India has  already issued over 1.8 million bogus domicile certificates to non-Kashmiris.

The Foreign Minister said that the Hindutva ideology was not only a threat to the Kashmiris but to India’s own nationals.  “The world is witnessing rise of ultra-nationalism, racism, fascism, religious hatred and intolerance in India,” he added.
