20 Million people of Jammu Kashmir and their Right of Self-Determination
Dear Excellency we apprise you of the urgency around the longstanding issue of Jammu Kashmir. We extend our sincere good will, and wish your tenures Secretary General With full of successes in alleviating , suffering and exploitation of underprivileged , and like 20 million Kashmiris, the subjugated people of the world!
As the conscience of the oppressed, exploited and subjugated millions throughout the world, we anticipate that your Excellency will make an early intervention on status of 20 million inhabitants of Jammu Kashmir - in accordance with the principles of the UN Charter. Excellency as you
are aware, political status of Jammu Kashmir is yet to be determined within the internationally recognized principles and rights of peoples to self - determination . Since August 13th 1947 however, this cherished objective of freedom has been denied to the Kashmiris. Despite an existence under oppression and suffering for almost 70 years, Kashmiris have nevertheless, remained steadfast in the struggle to achieve their inherent and inalienable right to self determination.
Excellency instead of engaging with the people of Jammu Kashmir, and the world community to find an equitable solution to the issue,Indo- Pakistan confrontation and their contention over Kashmir, has become a danger to peace and prosperity for South Asian region and rest of the world. Both countries are perilously close to a full scale war on daily basis.
Since August of 2016 their military actions across the Line of Control-LOC- in Jammu Kashmir, have resulted in deaths and injuries to hundreds of civilians. Armies of both countries are deployed eye-ball to eye ball in Jammu Kashmir which is inimical to the well-being of civilian population on either side of the forced divide. Excellency both countries are
nuclear powers and as a consequence of their contention over Kashmir, are engaged in an arms race that has catastrophic implications for all concerned.
Excellency the struggle of Kashmiri people is to decide the future status of their country. And the denial of their right to do so is a greatest injustice meted out to a people whose most cherished desire is to have peace and prosperity in their country.
We therefore urge your Excellency to take urgent steps and measures as the custodian of world conscience, to ensure that a solution of the issue is achieved for sake of peace, justice and prosperity in the region and the world according to the UNCIP resolution of 13 Aug 1948 Document NO 1100. Para 75 dated the 9th Nov 1948 Part llI" The Government of India and the Government of Pakistan reaffirm their wish that the future status of the State of Jammu Kashmir shell be determined in accordance with the will of the people"
Excellency 20 million people of Jammu Kashmir are eagerly prepared to become abridge of peace between India and Pakistan in such process.
We urge your Excellency to impress upon the Indian and Pakistani government to remove all its military and paramilitary forces from the urban and rural areas of Jammu Kashmir , and to stop forth - with the intimidation and oppression of the civilian population.
Excellency we are fully aware of the difficulties that a peace process over Kashmir may entail. However, as you will agree with us, there is no alternative to peace. Kashmiris desire nothing less than a peaceful and prosperous future for themselves and the billion and half people of India and Pakistan. We anticipate that along with major issues that blight our world, the plight of 20 million Kashmiris and their inherent , inalienable and internationally recognised right to freedom and democracy, will be an urgent focus of your attention.
Excellency resolution of the Kashmir issue is a key to peace, justice and prosperity not only in South Asia but in the world.
