He said that Kashmiri Muslims had suffered a lot due to Indian brutalities and atrocities, and the international community was soundless on the human rights violations in Kashmir. Moreover, he said that Pakistan must become economically strong and stable, if she wanted to be heard on international forums for the liberation of Kahsmiri Muslims. He said that Pakistan needed to revise its economic policies and invest at least 25 to 30 percent out of its annual budget for development and sustainable economy.
