Islamabad: In a recent meeting at the President’s House in Islamabad, Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry emphasized the need for the European Union to actively engage in resolving the Kashmir issue due to the alarming human rights violations in occupied Kashmir. However, the situation has taken a new turn as Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has revealed in the Canadian Parliament that Indian secret agencies were involved in the murder of Sikh leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar residing in Canada. This revelation has led to worldwide consensus among intelligence agencies, indicating India’s involvement in the murder, suggesting India’s participation in acts of terrorism globally.
Canada’s Prime Minister and the Canadian Parliament have unequivocally stated that India has orchestrated the killing of our citizens within our own country, thereby establishing that Modi has turned into a global terrorist. Similarly, for the past 75 years, India has been committing atrocities against the people of Kashmir, with the Kashmiri population enduring these injustices. The European Union has taken significant steps in addressing the Kashmir issue, and the European Parliament has passed numerous resolutions condemning human rights violations in occupied Kashmir. In this context, a report by Emma Nicholson on human rights abuses in occupied Kashmir has also been approved by the European Parliament.
Therefore, it is imperative for the European Union to appoint a special envoy for Kashmir who can prepare a comprehensive report while considering ground realities and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, focusing on curbing human rights violations in occupied Kashmir. The resolution of the Kashmir issue and ending Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir can be pivotal for peace in South Asia. After the United Nations, the European Union can play a crucial role in achieving this goal.
These sentiments were expressed today during a detailed meeting between Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry and the European Union’s Ambassador Dr. Reina Kyoka, who led a high-level delegation to Pakistan. The delegation included representatives from the Political Section, Head of Political Affairs and Human Rights Counselor Ms. Rukai Komoku, and Political Counselor Mr. Simon Mercou.
During this meeting, President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry briefed Ambassador Dr. Reina Kyoka and her delegation on the latest developments regarding the Kashmir issue and the situation in occupied Kashmir. Additionally, discussions encompassed mutual interests and other matters between Azad Jammu and Kashmir and the European Union.
