LAHORE, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 17th Jan, 2017 ) : President Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies (CPGS) Senator Sehar Kamran (TI) has urged the international community to push for implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions about plebiscite in Kashmir. Talking to APP on Tuesday, she said the right to self-determination was a fundamental human right of the people of Kashmir. She said that the Kashmir dispute was as old as the Palestine dispute and the Muslims of Kashmir expect support of international community in their just cause.
Sehar said that the current human rights situation in held Kashmir is really grave, as assessed by independent NGOs and UN Human Rights Commission. The Senator said that in 2016 alone, India violated ceasefire at the Line of Control (LoC) more than 90 times. She said the current Modi regime in India had entered a blind alley in its campaign against Pakistan. It has now become very difficult for it to find support internationally. Despite its best efforts, India could not divert the world attention from the atrocities, its forces were committing against Kashmiris, she added.
Sehar said that the world also knew how India was involved in covert terrorist activities inside Pakistan and how it was trying to sabotage Pakistan's interests by sending people like Kulbhushan Yadav and pursuing Ajit Doval's 'Offensive Defence' doctrine. The senator said that peace in South Asia could not be established unilaterally. Islamabad has been proposing talks, but New Delhi has been avoiding it due to its domestic compulsions and politics, which revolve around an anti-Pakistan narrative, she added.
