Kashmiris bear brunt of chemical weapons in IHK: Mushaal Mullick

LAHORE: Renowned Kashmiri leader and human rights activist Mushaal Mullick said that Indian forces were using chemical weapons to stifle the voice of innocent Kashmiris.

Addressing a seminar held in connection with the Kashmir Solidarity Day at Punjab University here, she urged the Pakistani youth to play their role in mustering international support for the freedom of Kashmir from the Indian yoke.

Mushaal Mullick said the recent United Nations (UN) report had highlighted Indian atrocities in held Kashmir which was a strong evidence to prosecute Indian forces in International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Mushaal, wife of Kashmiri freedom fighter Yasin Malik, said Indian forces were involved in target killing of the hapless Kashmiri youth and many engineers, pilots and PhD scholars had been martyred.

She said the passion of freedom among youth in Indian Occupied Kashmir was increasing day by day.

"Could you imagine a life under curfew, unemployment, and without medicine, electricity, internet, intellectual freedom and food," she said, urging the youth to use social media and directly send email to the UN Secretary General in support of Kashmir cause.

Mullick said freedom and Pakistan were the two loves of the Kashmiri people, adding that Kashmir issue was not a dispute over a piece of land but it was a matter of Kashmiris' right to self-determination.

She said draconian laws had been enforced to suppress the voice of freedom movement in the Indian-held Kashmir (IHK), adding people had disregarded any care for lives and fighting for their rights.

Talking about the Indian brutalities, she said Kashmiri children were being abused and women were being raped in the IHK, claiming that the genocide of Kashmiris was being committed by the Indian forces.

PU Dean Faculty of Engineering and Technology Prof Dr Taqi Zahid Butt, Dean Faculty of Oriental Learning Prof Dr Saleem Mazhar, Students Affairs Director Dr Asmatullah, Registrar Dr. Muhammad Khalid Khan, faculty members and a large number of students were present on the occasion.

The Faisal auditorium of PU resonated with the slogans in solidarity with the Kashmir movement and the Kashmiri freedom fighters.
