Nekyal: Former Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir Sardar Sikandar Hayat Khan Wednesday said that people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan would continue to support Kashmiri people who are fighting for the future of Pakistan. He stressed up on Indian leadership to settle Kashmir dispute for the permanent peace and security of South Asia and said that due to this issue the whole peace of this region is at stake. He was talking to the visiting senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) and Chairman Jammu and Kashmir National Front (JKNF) Nayeem Ahmad Khan who called on him at his Nekyal residence and exchanged views on the ongoing liberation movement and peace process between India and Pakistan. On this occasion Nayeem Khan said the people of Jammu and Kashmir are highly thankful to the people of Azad Kashmir and Pakistan for their undaunted support for the ongoing liberation movement and urged India to stop the custodian killings and human rights violations across Jammu and Kashmir. He said Kashmiris are peace loving people but New Delhi ruthlessly exploited the public sentiments this is the cause youth picked up guns for their birth right that has been accepted both the countries India and Pakistan and approved by UN as well. Meanwhile, Nayeem Khan addressed the Kotli Bar Association and hailed the services of lawyers community for the Kashmiris right of self- determination . He said the lawyers in Srinagar are working a lot to expose Indian state terrorism through court proceedings. He said lawyers in Kashmir are not taking any kind of charge and fees while pursuing the cases of freedom fighters without any charges and this is the proof that how much lawyers are practically involved in the on going liberation movement. The lawyers community of Kotli welcomed the visiting leader of APHC and appreciated the sacrifices of Kashmiri people. In another programme Nayeem Khan addressed the refugees in Kotli Refugee Camp and said that the day will come when you all will be at your homes without any pressure because the days of India are now short in Jammu and Kashmir. We have decided to break the shackles of slavery and there is no room for Indian troops on our land. The refugees elders received Nayeem Khan warmly and shout full throat slogans against the Indian barbarism.
