Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Masood Khan has called for harnessing diplomacy to resolve Kashmir issue.

In an interview with a leading US magazine, he said Kashmir is becoming a blind spot of international community. He said the current state of affairs in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is abysmal.

He said India is committing worst human rights violations in the occupied valley. He said there are no civil liberties or fundamental freedoms in IIOJK and entire territory is being ruled by fear and intimidation.

To a question regarding Pakistan’s willingness to talk, Masood Khan said Pakistan and Kashmiris are always ready to talk. He, however, reiterated that for any meaningful and result-oriented talk, India must hold in abeyance its illegal and unilateral actions that were taken on August 2019 in IIOJK.

The Ambassador said the two sides must demonstrate statesmanship and move towards a ‘Brave New World’. “Brave New World” where we work for connectivity; we work for peace and security and prosperity for all the South Asians.

Daughter of Hurriyat Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik, Raziyah Sultana, has expressed her strong resentment over persecution of children in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir at the hands of occupying forces.

In an exclusive podcast with Radio Pakistan, she regretted that the Kashmiri children are not being allowed to get education while pellet guns are also being used against them and their parents.

Raziyah Sultana said it is the mission of her life to protect the Kashmiri children and send them to schools. For this, she sought the support of Pakistani children.

Putting up a brave face, Raziyah Sultana emphatically stated that she is not scared of Modi. Rather, she said that Modi and India are scared of his father Yasin Malik and that is why he has been incarcerated.

Raziyah Sultana said those languishing in jails in the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir have committed no crime, but their struggle for right to self-determination is peaceful.

She said killing of innocent Muslims is a crime and this must come to an end.

Raziyah Sultana also urged the world community including the United Nations to save the Kashmiri people from the cruel clutches of Modi, who want to turn Kashmir into mini-India.

She said the Kashmiris should be given the right to self-determination. She was confident that the Kashmiri people will get independence very soon.

The daughter of Hurriyat leader was appreciative of the support extended by Pakistan to the oppressed Kashmiri people saying that Pakistan has always stood by the innocent people, Kashmir will become part of Pakistan.

The ten years old Raziyah Sultana also recalled childhood memories and the time she spent with her father saying that she misses her father Yasin Malik, very much, expressing the confidence that he will return soon. She said four years have passed since she last talked to her father on the telephone.

Raziyah Sultana also paid glowing tributes to the founding father Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah saying that he is the role model for us who spent the whole of his life for the sake of Pakistan.
