Islamabad: The sacrifices of the Kashmiri
people will "bear fruit and India cannot stop the rising dawn
of freedom in Kashmir", Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said
Gilani made the remarks while speaking at a dinner he
hosted for Kashmiri leaders at the Prime Minister`s House on
the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day.
"India has been striving to suppress the voice of
Kashmiris, who are fighting for their just right to
self-determination for over half a century, through force and
subjugation," he claimed.
The day is not far when Kashmiris will determine their
future, he told the gathering that included leaders from
Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and federal ministers.
Gilani regretted that at the time of the division of
Indian subcontinent, the "Kashmiris` accession to Pakistan was
disallowed through a conspiracy".
He contended that the Indian leadership was ignoring UN
resolutions under which the Kashmiris were promised a
plebiscite to choose their future.
He reiterated Pakistan`s moral, diplomatic and political
support to the Kashmiris.
