Dawn of new crescent year calls for greater stress on freedom – Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad, 8 Dec 2010, 01 Muharram 1432: Muhammad Farooq Rehmani Chairman Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League on the eve of the new Hijrah year has emphasized upon greater solidarity and co operation between Muslim peoples of the globe against foreign occupation, political and economic exploitation, illiteracy and impoverishment of the common man in the streets and slums of Muslim and non Muslim regions of the world.
He said that the new Islamic year reminded Muslim states of their responsibilities vis-à-vis occupied Muslim lands, subjugated people and suffering humanity of this planet.
He said it was the first and foremost duty of the Organization of the Islamic Countries(OIC) to fight for the rights of the Muslims and initiate necessary measures to force the United Nations Organization for resolving all peace-threatening disputes in line with the international human rights law and aspirations of the enslaved people.
Otherwise, he warned both UNO and OIC would lose their importance to the disadvantage of the world peace. He said that today when Kashmir had become a burning topic of the world, and the Kashmiris were offering unparalleled sacrifices for their promised birth right—the right of self determination amid India’s oppression, it was up to the UN to implement its resolutions onKashmir and resolve the dispute amicably in the interest of the future generations.
He said that India and its laws had lost their force in Kashmir, since the prevailing laws were against basic human rights and heinous crimes were being perpetrated on peaceful inhabitants only to perpetuate the illegal colonial rule over Kashmir.
