India using chemical weapons on Kashmiris: Mushaal Malick

LAHORE: (Tuesday, January 29, 2019): Renowned Kashmiri leader and human rights activist Mrs Mushaal Mullick has said that Indian forces were using chemical weapons on innocent Kashmiris and urged the youth to make efforts for gathering international support for the cause. She was addressing a seminar organized by Punjab University Directorate of Students Affairs in connection with Kashmir Solidarity Day here on Tuesday. 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.

Addressing the seminar, Mrs Mushaal Mullick said that the recent report of United Nations had highlighted Indian atrocities in held Kashmir which was a strong evidence to prosecute Indian forces in International Court of Justice. She said that Indian forces were involved in target killing of intellectual Kashmiri youth and many engineers, pilots and PhD scholars had been martyred. She said that the passion of freedom among youth in Indian Occupied Kashmir was increasing day by day. “Can you imagine what will be life under curfew, unemployment, no intellectual freedom and without medicine, electricity, internet and food?,” she said, asking the participants to use social media and directly send email to Secretary General of United Nations in support of Kashmir cause. She said that Kashmiri people love two things i.e. freedom and Pakistan. She said that Kashmir issue was not the issue of piece of land but Kashmiris’ right to self-determination. She said that Draconian laws had been enforced to suppress the voice of freedom movement. However, she said, people were not taking care of their lives and fighting for their rights. She said that children were being abused and women were being raped in Held Kashmir and genocide of Kashmiris was going on. Addressing the seminar, Prof Dr Taqi Zahid Butt said that the martyrdom of Burhan Wani created new wave of passion of liberty in the freedom movement of Kashmiri people. He said that PU teachers, employees and students were extending full support to Kashmiri people and teachers would motivate their students for using social media to raise voice in favor of Kashmiri people. He said that time would come when Kashmir would be free from Indian occupation.
