The wife of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Mushaal Hussein Malik, has called on the Pakistan government to cut all diplomatic ties with India.
Yasin Malik’s wife, who is a Pakistani, has also called for scrapping of the Simla Agreement in what she termed a “show of solidarity” for the Kashmir cause.
During a joint press conference with Jamat-e-Islami in Lahore, she appealed to Pakistani people to “highlight the genocide of Kashmiris by Indian forces in the valley.”
“Kashmir is the only important issue of South Asia and Pakistan government. Political parties should utilise their energies to expose the Indian crimes against humanity at international level,” she said.
“There is a dire need of adoption of a consistent national Kashmir policy by Pakistan,” she added.
Pakistan marks February 5 as ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ every year with rallies, marches, conferences, special parliament sessions and events organised countrywide.
The Pakistan government under Prime Minister Imran Khan has maintained that there can be no talks with India until the Kashmir dispute is on top of the dialogue agenda.
Prime Minister Imran Khan calls himself the ambassador of the Kashmir cause and has been raising the Kashmir issue at global platforms like the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), where he has highlighted the threat Indo-Pak tensions can cause to regional development, peace and security.
Pakistan has also been calling on the US administration to intervene in the matter to de-escalate tensions between the two rivals. However, the US has clarified that it cannot play any part until both parties (India and Pakistan) agree for international mediation.
