Traders express full solidarity with Kashmiris
The Pakistan Industrial and Traders Associations Front (PIAF) Mian Nauman Kabir has strongly condemned the lockdown of Occupied Kashmir by India, which has entered the 185th day on Feb 05, expressing full solidarity on behalf of the whole business community of Pakistan to the valiant struggle of the Kashmiri people, resisting repression and military might with their spirit and determination.
The chairman, while addressing a traders meeting in Lahore held in solidarity with the Kashmiris, urged the government and all stakeholders to formulate a coherent national strategy and national stamina to sustain that strategy.
The meeting was also addressed by PIAF senior vice chairman Nasir Hameed and vice chairman Javed Iqbal Siddiqi.
Mian Nauman Kabir said that civilian and military leaders are on the same page on Kashmir issue, people are protesting Indian move inside India, in the UK and other countries, while Solidarity Day on 5th Feb has sent a very positive signal.
He said India is facing unprecedented diplomatic humiliation which is a victory for Pakistan. He noted Modi’s move has initiated the process of disintegration of a divided country while tensions with Pakistan will destroy its economy and credibility. He warned that depriving Pakistan of its share of water will be the last mistake of Hindu radicals who have changed secular India into an extremist state.
PIAF senior vice chairman Nasir Hameed said that traders also express our appreciation to all other parliamentarians, civil society, intelligentsia, media, human rights organizations, all over the world, who support the just and heroic struggle of the oppressed people of Occupied Kashmir.
PIAF vice chairman Javed Iqbal Siddiqi condemned the illegal annexation of Occupied Kashmir by India, led by Narendera Modi and the RSS gang he represents, with the aim to change the demography of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir as part of their fascist and racist agenda.
The PIAF meeting also passed a resolution saying that the lockdown of Kashmir is an attempt to undermine the United Nations Charter, International Law and relevant UN Security Council Resolutions which seek the inalienable right of self-determination for the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
