Pakistan stands behind Kashmiris, says Pak PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

Kashmir: The year ahead and beyond

Ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, also rallied on Monday in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, with the latter shouting the slogan "Kashmir will become Pakistan".

"I really get hurt when I am called a terrorist by elements in the Pakistani media for speaking on the issue of Kashmir", he said.

India and Pakistan traded accusations after an exchange of gunfire killed four Indian soldiers and a Pakistani civilian along the highly fortified Line of Control (LoC) that divides the disputed region of Kashmir.

India can not suppress the struggle of Kashmiris striving for autonomy as its army has deprived them of this basic right, he affirmed.

Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has said that Kashmir issue was not just a territorial dispute but a question of people's inherent right to self-determination.

He said that on daily basis we witness attacks on Indian Muslims and Kashmiris by forces and these attacks are a direct outcome of the patronage provided to attackers by the present ruling regime of India.

The people of Pakistan, he said, felt the pains and sufferings of the Kashmir people in IHK, who had been facing the illegal subjugation of the Indian rule for the last 70 years, and extended their whole-hearted support to the Kashmiri leadership.

He reiterated that the government of Pakistan and its people would continue their political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kahmiri people struggling for their right to self-determination.

PM Abbasi said that there has been no interference by the federal government in the previous assembly elections of Kashmir.

She said Kashmiris have already denied India doctored claims of "Integral Part" and now only through plebiscite the future of Kashmir will be decided.
