AJK elec­tion­eer­ing

Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

state­ment is­sued in Srinagar, Satur­day main­tained that In­dian army over the in­sti­ga­tion of non-lo­cals were sub­ject­ing the peo­ple of Kul­pora area of the district to se­vere phys­i­cal and men­tal tor­ture.

He pointed out the these non-lo­cals backed by In­dian army were in­volved in im­moral ac­tiv­i­ties in the area. On the in­struc­tion of Syed Ali Gee­lani, APHC leader Ghu­lam Nabi Sumjhi vis­ited Kul­pora to ex­press sol­i­dar­ity with the vic­tim peo­ple.—KMS KOTLI/PALLANDERI—Ex-Prime Min­is­ter of Azad Kash­mir Sar­dar At­tique Ahmed Khan who is also Pres­i­dent of Mus­lim Con­fer­ence has said that hold­ing of gen­eral elec­tion is a dif­fi­cult process and called for de­ploy­ment of armed forces to take over polls ad­min­is­tra­tion in the lib­er­ated re­gion.

Call­ing for en­force­ment of pres­i­den­tial sys­tem he pointed that no one can fight elec­tions un­der the present dis­pen­sa­tion un­less he/she has Rs.4 crore in the kitty. He pre­dicted that MC-PTI al­liance would form the post elec­tions gov­ern­ment in AJK.

But at the same time Sar­dar At­tique Ahmed Khan said that he does not see gen­eral elec­tions tak­ing place on July 21, 2016. This is my pre­dic­tion and quoted many other pre­dic­tion that later proved true.

He said that Mus­lim Con­fer­ence was the ide­o­log­i­cal back­bone of Kash­mir and Kash­mir pol­i­tics.Mi­nus Mus­lim Con­fer­ence the whole his­tory of Jammu and Kash­mir strug­gle for free­dom loses its sig­nif­i­cance and right di­rec­tion. Only gov­er­nance is not suf­fi­cient in Azad Kash­mir. AJK is part of whole state of Jammu and Kash­mir. Greater part is oc­cu­pied by In­dia whose lib­er­a­tion would come via UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tions and as per as­pi­ra­tions of the Kash­miris, he said.

He said that his party was also func­tional in oc­cu­pied Kash­mir. The en­tire re­gional sit­u­a­tion has as­sumed such a sta­tus that only ide­o­log­i­cal forces can tackle the out­come.

We all must join heads and hands to reach the goal fixed by the im­mense sac­ri­fices ren­dered by the Kash­miris across the Line of Con­trol. Once again in gov­ern­ment I would launch a Kash­mir is­sue reawak­en­ing drive across the world to seek global per­sua­sion for early set­tle­ment of this long pend­ing dis­pute, threat­en­ing world peace, he added.—Email
