‘A mere statement cannot free Kashmir from Indian occupation’ | Instant News

Speakers at the seminar organized by Jamaat-e-Islami on Wednesday said that the liberation of Indian-occupied Kashmir (IOK) can become a reality only through jihad.

They say that statements on Kashmir by Prime Minister Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi will not work, and that there is a very urgent need in exchange for training. The Kashmir Solidarity Seminar was held at Idara Noor-e-Haq, JI headquarters in Karachi, in conjunction with Kashmir Solidarity Day which is celebrated annually on February 5.

The speakers urged the Pakistani government to take practical steps and to impress on the good of the nations, the United Nations and international human rights organizations to force India to respect the UN charter to resolve the IOK issue.

JI Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman condemned the human rights abuses at IOK and said that Kashmiris were with Pakistan. He said it was our rulers’ responsibility to highlight the Kashmir issue in international forums to make them aware of the Indian atrocities being carried out in the valley.

He regretted that international and UN forces were awakened when it came to Iraq, Sudan and problems with other countries, but they remained silent about the world’s most burning IOK issue. He called on all political parties and human rights bodies to voice the Kashmir issue together and condemn the brutality facing the valley people at the hands of the Indian government.

Pakistan-Nawaz Muslim League leader Nihal Hashmi said that considering the jihad option is the responsibility of the government, adding that if it were to declare waging jihad, the country’s people would stand with Kashmiris in their just struggle for freedom.

He said the government should allow prime minister Azad Jammu & Kashmir to declare jihad. “We are with the Kashmiri PM and will carry out a joint jihad against India’s illegal occupation of Kashmir.”

Pakistani People’s Party Senator Taj Haider said that we must identify our friends and enemies, because as a Third World country, we have been forced by the stronger countries to fight for satisfying their interior motives.

He said, in accordance with the UN charter, voting could be held in the IOK to find out the people’s will, so the government had to approach the international community to make it happen.

Only the formation of the committee is not a solution to the problem: JI | Instant News

Karachi – Forming a committee in the Karachi development program is a cosmetic measure and not a viable solution to addressing various urban civil problems. This was stated by Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi ameer, Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman.

Despite promising and announcing schemes for development programs by the government, so far no practical work has been seen on the ground, he regrets. “What Karachi and other parts of Sindh will be in the Rs1,100 billion Karachi development package, nobody knows”. This shows the incompetence of government policy in this regard, he regrets.

He warned the government must stop the demolition of residences in the Nullahs before making replacement arrangements for their rehabilitation. Karachi residents are fed up with filth and grime, bad and dilapidated infrastructure, and not having civilian needs available to them, he said.

Both Sindh and the central government are ignored by Karachi’s old civil problems and if these actions continue, JI and citizens have the right to force the government to resolve these issues, he added.

3 restaurants were closed

for violating the SOP

Three restaurants in Do Darya Karachi have been closed at the direction of Deputy Commissioner (DC) South Irshad Ali Sodhar for violating standard operating procedures (SOPs).

The order was made by Assistant Deputy Commissioner Junaid Khan who sealed the Kebab G Restaurant, Al Habib Restaurant and Sajjad Restaurant. The restaurant was found to want to comply with the Covid-19 SOP and open beyond the time the government announced for the restaurant.

“Violation of the SOP will not be tolerated under any circumstances,” said Sodhar.
