LAHORE: President Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Sardar Masood Khan Wednesday urged upon Pakistani youth to excel in their fields, saying that a strong, united and economically prosper Pakistan guarantees the freedom of Kashmir.
“India is stockpiling weapons to target Pakistan”, the AJK President underlined while addressing the students of Government College University Lahore, the AJK President office said.
While recalling the tragedy of February 24, 1991, the AJK president said that on this day, more than 1,000 Indian troops had shot martyred several males in Kunanposhpura village of occupied Kashmir, and had gang-raped more than 100 women there.
He went on to say that one million Indian troops in occupied Kashmir were killed the Kashmiri youth in fake encounters declaring them terrorists, while more than 1,400 youth have been arrested and detained in prisons and concentration cells, and they were being subjected to the worst torture for demanding freedom and the right to self-determination.
Sardar Masood Khan asserted that the treatment being meted out by the fascist Modi regime today, was perpetrated by German dictator Hitler to the Jews, Roma nomads and Hungarian and Polish citizens during the last century, and had killed the Jews alive throwing them in gas chambers. He questioned whether we are also waiting for burning alive of detained Kashmiri youth in gas chambers.
“Today is the 23rd of February and it is a dark day in the history of Kashmir; I dedicate this day to the victims of rape, a crime that was committed in the early 1990s in Kunan Poshspora, where women were cordoned off by the Indian armed personals and were raped on mass; the youngest victims were 5 years old and the oldest was 80; many of those who are still alive and have scars on their bodies and minds,” Sardar Masood Khan said.
