People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

On 27 Oc­to­ber 2017, Em­bassy of Pak­istan, Kathmandu or­ga­nized a talk pro­gramme on the “Res­o­lu­tion of Jammu and Kash­mir Dis­pute: An Im­per­a­tive for Re­gional Peace and Devel­op­ment”. The pro­gramme was well at­tended by wide seg­ment of Nepalese so­ci­ety in­clud­ing in­tel­lec­tu­als, think thanks, me­dia per­sons and civil so­ci­ety. 27 Oc­to­ber is ob­served as Black Day by Kash­miries to con­demn the un­law­ful land­ing of In­dian troops in oc­cu­pied Jammu and Kash­mir on 27 Oc­to­ber 1947. Since then, In­dia has been il­le­gally oc­cu­py­ing the state of Jammu and Kash­mir against the wishes of its peo­ple and in ut­ter vi­o­la­tion of UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions. Kash­miries are also fac­ing grave hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions as In­dia is try­ing to si­lence their voice for the right of self- de­ter­mi­na­tion with use of ex­ces­sive force and bru­tal means. Speak­ers in their talk em­pha­sized that res­o­lu­tion of Jammu and Kash­mir dis­pute in ac­cor­dance with the wishes of peo­ple of Jammu and Kash­mir is im­per­a­tive for re­gional peace and devel­op­ment.
