APHC leaders lash out at controversial decision of Indian Supreme Court on kashmir
ISLAMABAD (APP): Joint resistance leadership including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik has rejected the verdict of Indian Supreme Court saying that Jammu and Kashmir was a separate, independent and sovereign entity even before emergence of India on the world map.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Hurriyet leaders in a joint statement issued in Srinagar said that dozens of UN resolutions on Kashmir were proofs of Jammu and Kashmir being a universally accepted dispute.
Senior Hurriyet leader Shabbir Ahmad Shah in his statement said that verdict neither held any meaning nor could it change the disputed status of the territory.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while speaking to renowned Indian scholar Kamal Morarka and journalist Santosh Bhartiya at his residence in Srinagar said that people of Kashmir were not against any country, but they were struggling for their right to self-determination.
He said that Kashmir was a longstanding dispute that was holding the regional peace hostage for the past seven decades.
