Rawalpindi: Speaker Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly, Chaudhry Latif Akbar, has vehemently protested against the implementation of draconian laws by India, based on humanitarian atrocities, anti-Muslim sentiments, and religious animosity. He has demanded immediate action from influential countries including the United Nations, OIC, and European Union, to play an effective role.

Expressing concerns over India’s law mandating a 11-year residency requirement and domicile for granting citizenship to Muslims, Speaker Latif Akbar emphasized that the amendments made by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 5, 2019, abrogating Article 370 and revoking Article 35A in occupied Jammu and Kashmir, could lead to an escalation of religious extremism between two nuclear-armed nations, jeopardizing global peace and cultural harmony.

Chaudhry Latif Akbar stated that both India and Israel are occupying powers, fostering terrorism to plunder world peace, hence it is imperative for the world to acknowledge their existence. He warned that if India continues its expansionist ambitions and does not abandon its policies of oppression, it may result in a clash of civilizations and exacerbate tensions between cultures.

He asserted that with over eight hundred thousand occupying forces, India cannot indefinitely subjugate the people of Kashmir by force. Referring to the grave human rights violations, including the killing of renowned Kashmiri journalist Shujaat Bukhari, he stressed that action on such reports is indispensable. He declared Pakistan as the voice and the defender of the Kashmiris, stating that the people of Kashmir sacrifice for Pakistan and are transferring their ideological ties to future generations.

Chaudhry Latif Akbar emphasized the pivotal role of media in exposing Modi’s nefarious designs regarding Kashmir. He stated that the Kashmir issue is at a crucial and delicate juncture in history, and collective efforts are required for the Kashmir freedom movement to succeed.

He expressed his thoughts during an iftar dinner hosted in honor of journalists, attended by President Federal Union of Journalists Afzal Butt, President National Press Club Islamabad Afzal Jatoi, Secretary National Press Club Islamabad Naeem Ali, Finance Secretary Waqar Abbasi, Special Assistant to Speaker Azad Kashmir Legislative Assembly Syed Azadar Hussain Kazmi, Central Secretary Finance Pakistan Peoples Party Azad Kashmir Saeed Tasadduq Girdazi, Additional Secretary Finance Pakistan Peoples Party Azad Kashmir Chaudhry Rubnawaz Tahir, along with senior journalists Amir Mehmood, Raja Kafeel, Khwaja Amin, Sardar Zahid Tabeer, Amjad Chaudhry, Ijaz Abbasi, Basharat Abbasi, Aabid Naqi, Khalid Girdazi, Aabid Abbasi, Shahzad Rathore, Sardar Hamid, Syed Naveed Bukhari, Sardar Javaid, Mahiuddin Dar, Kashif Meer, Javaid Chaudhry, Chaudhry Zafar Saeed, and others.
