Srinagar: Castigating United Nations for failing to implement its resolutions on Kashmir, Chairman United Jehad Council Syed Salahudin Friday said that the delay in implementation of the resolutions was taking a heavy toll on the Kashmiris.
In a press statement issued today, Syed Salahudin said that on January 5, 1948, the UN had passed a resolution noting that both India and Pakistan had accepted that the question of accession of the state of Jammu and Kashmir to India or Pakistan will be decided through the democratic method of free and impartial plebiscite.
By virtue of UN resolutions, the Kashmir dispute has achieved international dimensions. The resolutions have made the case of Kashmiris strong. Ironically, the UN which projects itself as a credible institution has failed to implement its own resolutions, he said.
He maintained that whether India or Pakistan will accept or disapprove the UN resolutions, Kashmiris will remain committed to achieve the right to self-determination. We wont let the sacrifices rendered by Kashmir in past over six decades go waste. India cant suppress Kashmiris movement for right to self-determination through force, he said appealing International community to take measures to settle down Kashmir issue.
Terming the presence of Indian Army in Kashmir and dogmatic approach adopted by India as the biggest hurdle in the resolution of Kashmir issue, Salahudin said that Kashmiris have rendered over one lakh sacrifices for the indigenous movement and the struggle against India would continue on all fronts.
