ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 1st Augst,2016) : Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) on both sides of the isle Monday condemned the Indian forces' barbaric atrocities in Occupied Kashmir and called on the United Nations and international community to help resolve the long-standing issue. They asked the international community to compel India for implementing the UN resolutions on the Kashmir issue like East Timor and give the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
The National Assembly suspended the routine agenda and started debate on an adjournment motion move by Jamiat Ulema-i-Isalm-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman to discuss the Indian forces brutalities on innocent Kashmiris.
Chief Whip of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Dr Shireen Mazari said the parliament should frame policies and the bureaucracy should implement the same. Diplomatic efforts should be made to force India bring the Kashmir issue at the world fora and the UN under Chapter 6, she added.
Under Chapter 6, she said Kashmir was an international issue and Pakistan was party to it.
She said Indian forces were using pellet guns against innocent Kashmiris, which was a violation of international human rights. The matter should be taken up at Geneva as under the law such weapons could not be used against the civilian population, he added.
She said even in the Simla Agreement, implementation of the UN resolutions was stressed. The UN resolutins on the East Taimour and Kashmir were same. Plebiscite was held in East Taimour but Kashmir was ignored, she added. She said Pakistan should adopt a firm stance on Kashmir despite the United States and Indian pressure. Beelam Hasnain of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) said there was a need to expose real face of India before the world.
Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had effectively taken up the Kashmir issue at the international fora. She said the whole nation was with the Kashmiris in this hour of trial.
