She said that Kashmir committee should be more empowered to play more effective role in Kashmir issue. She said, we strongly condemn the barbaric acts of Indian forces against Kashmir people, adding Human Right Commission which was currently silent should play its role with regard to Kashmir issue and to break this inertia.

Shahida Akhtar Ali said unless Indian Army Act was repealed, martyrdom of people would continue and the independence movement would gain strength. She said Pakistan should extend moral and diplomatic support and being Muslim we are to make efforts to make Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) more functional and its commission on Kashmir should be made more active. She expressed dismay that International Community had turned blind eye to atrocities by Indian forces, adding resolution should be passed on making OIC more functional.

Dr Arif Alvi of PTI, said Kashmir Committee should play more effective role. He expressed hope that Kashmir would get independence as there was indigenous movement in progress. Dr Arif Alvi was of the view that Kashmir Committee should have utilized role of media which played an important role in shaping opinion, but failed to do so. He said it was responsibility of Kashmir Committee to apprise international community on Kashmir issue.
