Kuala Lumpur: The High Commission for Pakistan in Malaysia organized a function in Kuala Lumpur today (Tuesday) to mark the Kashmir Solidarity Day in recognition of the untold sacrifices rendered by the Kashmiris to realise their goal of self-determination.
Speaking on the occasion, Pakistan’s Acting High Commissioner to Malaysia Mr. Mohammad Nadeem Khan paid rich tributes to the Kashmiris for challenging the Indian occupation and rendering countless sacrifices to throw off the yoke of subjugation.
He called on the international community to help resolve the Kashmir issue to secure durable peace in the region. He lamented that while the people of Kashmir had long suffered, the civilized world had only paid a lip service to the issue, leaving millions of defenceless Kashmiris to the mercy of a brutal regime intent on crushing the freedom struggle through bullet and bayonet.
Mr. Muhamamd Nadeem Khan also underscored Pakistan’s efforts to resolve the issue, saying “our position is based on the support for a just cause and on principles recognized by the international community and enshrined in the UN Charter”. “Pakistan is committed to extending full moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmiris till the realization of their right to self-determination,” he added.
Later, documentaries highlighting the plight of Kashmiris and their struggle for freedom were shown. A group of schoolchildren also presented skits and tableaus signifying the theme of Kashmir Solidarity Day and highlighting the rich Kashmiri culture and traditions.
