Kashmir movement is heading towards plebiscite in IOK: Ali Gilani

ISLAMABAD,(UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -22nd Augst,2016) : Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani while welcoming the OIC Secretary General Iyad bin Amin Madani's statement on the grim situation in Kashmir, said the world's largest Muslim body Organization has acknowledged the universally accepted fact about the disputed nature of Jammu and Kashmir. According to KMS, Ali Gilani in a statement issued in Srinagar however maintained that resolutions and press briefings alone would not soothe Kashmiris' wounds.

"Our bloodshed and merciless killings by Indian armed forces on daily basis for the last seven decades, particularly for the past 45 days, where whole population has been besieged and people tortured with all their might, demands concrete steps to pressurize India to stop these crimes," he added. While affirming OIC's observation that present movement in Jammu and Kashmir is heading towards the plebiscite, Gilani said: "Our stand has always been that people of whole Jammu and Kashmir which existed in 1947 should be given the choice to decide their future and the decision will be acceptable to all." "OIC should have been dipping deep into the problems and issues faced by Muslim Ummah and should have come to the rescue of suffering people, but unfortunately past experience with OIC has not been so encouraging.

" Meanwhile, Gilani said that journalistic fraternity has been going through tough times to narrate the daily happenings in the region. "Under their professional obligations, they can't isolate themselves by not reporting the bloody scenario of our land.

Our mass movement, especially the present one, when whole population is determined to carry it forward to its logical end, demands a strong commitment from all of us. We need to come out of the cocoons we have woven around us.

Professional assignments aside, we have some more obligations as part of an oppressed nation, which is struggling for its basic rights," he said. Elaborating, Gilani said, "Everybody needs to own this movement and share their bit of responsibility honestly.

We can't put this task to some leaders or some activists as the gloom and miseries of oppression have to be shared by all of us collectively directly or indirectly," Gilani added.
