The “sacrifices” of Kashmiris will not go in vain, a Pakistani minister said, adding that their struggle for freedom in India cannot be suppressed. Information and broadcasting minster Firdous Ashiq Awan made the commitment on Friday while addressing a public meeting near Sialkot town, the Associated Press of Pakistan reported. She said the “sacrifices of Kashmiris will not go waste and they would get their birthright according to their wishes and the UN resolutions”.
She added that the “conspiracies being hatched against the Kashmiris would be foiled”. The struggle of the Kashmiri people “cannot be suppressed”, she added. India accuses Pakistan of providing military and financial support to the separatist campaign raging in Jammu and Kashmir since 1989.
Islamabad denies the charge, saying it only gives diplomatic and moral backing. The minister’s public meeting came ahead of local elections in Pakistani Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan. While Pakistan holds the northern third of the Himalayan state, the rest is controlled by India.
