UK ref­er­en­dum a strong call to In­dia

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—In oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, Hur­riyet leader Zam­ruda Habib com­ment­ing on the re­cent pop­u­lar ref­er­en­dum held in the United King­dom over the country’s as­so­ci­a­tion with the Euro­pean Union said that the ref­er­en­dum must work as an eye-opener for In­dia that has been sit­ting over the right to self-de­ter­mi­na­tion of the peo­ple of Kash­mir for the past many decades.

Zam­ruda Habib in a state­ment is­sued in Sri­na­gar stated that the said ex­er­cise was not only an enun­ci­a­tion of true demo­cratic spirit and prin­ci­ples but also an in­spi­ra­tion as well as a bea­con for most of the coun­tries that wanted to do jus­tice and live up to the spirit of demo­cratic set-up and prin­ci­ples. The ref­er­en­dum is a clear mes­sage for the world com­mu­nity that the real power should vest in the wishes of their re­spec­tive ci­ti­zens and not oth­er­wise, said Zam­ruda Habib.—KMS
