Former APHC convener Syed Yousaf Naseem says the year-long military siege of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir by over one million troops has failed to budge the Kashmiris from their right to self-determination and freedom from the Indian yoke.
Talking to APP, he said the Youm-e-Istehsal on August 5, was the darkest day in the history of IIOJK, when India usurped the basic rights of Kashmiris and put their entire leadership, including the puppet ones, in jails or confined to their homes.
He said the Modi government has not allowed the Kashmiri Muslims to offer Eid-ul-Azha prayers.
Yousaf Naseem said the sacrifices of Kashmiris would not go waste and the day was not far when they would get their right to self-determination as India would be dismembered into dozens of independent states, including Assam, Khalistan and many others.
The APHC leader said Indian Prime Minister Narendera Modi ordered ‘Ghasbana Qabza’ of the IIOJK on Aug 5 last year after failure to suppress the Kashmiris freedom movement during the last 72 years.
