Azad Jammu & Kashmir President, Sardar Masood Khan said the UN Secretary-General was trying to maintain an artificial balance between Pakistan and India through his very cautious statements on the forced and unilateral annexation of occupied Jammu & Kashmir to the Indian Union
Speaking at a national security workshop held at the National Defense University in Federal capital, he said by imposing indefinite curfew and media blockade, Narendra Modi regime had virtually cut off the people of disputed Jammu and Kashmir territory from the rest of the world for the last 47 days, AJK presidential secretariat said in an official statement issued on Saturday.
He appreciated China for supporting Pakistan's stand on the Kashmir issue, and said that the European parliament have had a formal plenary session on Kashmir while the Friends of Kashmir also held a debate on the issue in the European Parliament.
Sardar Masood Khan said India had adopted a four-pronged policy on Kashmir based on 1) use of brute force; 2) economic blandishments; 3) political support to pro-India parties; and 4) to project Kashmiri people as terrorists being supported by Pakistan. "This policy of Hindu fanaticism is reminiscent of Nazism and fascism," he added.
He said the Modi regime was poised to disintegrate Pakistan and retake Azad Kashmir through proxy wars. "Pakistan will have to strengthen its economy and invest in the militaristic prowess," he said, adding most importantly, we would have to craft national unity, and the military would have to remain prepare to counter any eventuality.
Replying to questions from the audience, the AJK president said India had been holding South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, hostage but despite its weakness, the association had the potential of being economic connectivity among the member states.
President National Defense University, Lt Gen Amer Riaz also spoke on the occasion.
