UN urged to implement its Kashmir resolutions without further delay

Islamabad, March 19, 2023 (PPI-OT): The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir (APHC-AJK) chapter has demanded the United Nations to implement its resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir without further delay so that the lingering Kashmir dispute can be resolved. APHC-AJK General Secretary Sheikh Abdul Mateen in a statement issued in Islamabad said that the United Nations Security Council had passed a historic resolution on Kashmir. It has been said in the resolution that the political future of Jammu and Kashmir would be decided by the democratic method of free and impartial referendum, but despite the passage of more than seven decades, the decision had not been implemented, he added.

He lamented that the United Nations did not take any concrete steps to implement its resolutions, which gave India the courage to crush the just struggle of the Kashmiris with military force. He further said that India had turned Kashmir into a huge prison by deputing over 10 lakh soldiers and has given free hand to its soldiers to kill Kashmiris. The Hurriyat leader said the Indian soldiers are trampling humanity under their boots in the occupied territory, adding the martyrdom of more than one lakh Kashmiris, the destruction of over one and a half lakh buildings and the desecration of 13,000 Kashmiri women since 1989 is a proof of the Indian brutalities.

Sheikh Abdul Mateen said by issuing domicile to thousands of Hindus, giving them lands in the occupied territory and implementing other anti-Kashmir laws, the evil intentions of Hindu extremists have become clear that they want to take away their identity, culture and lands from the Kashmiris. He said Pakistan has always supported the right to self-determination of the Kashmiris and has spoken about the resolution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the United Nations resolutions at every forum. Sheikh Mateen urged the international community to play its role in resolving the Kashmir dispute according to the UN resolutions and will of the Kashmiri people so that permanent peace could be established in South Asia.

Rahul should get chance to speak in parliament: Farooq Abdullah

Jaipur, March 19, 2023 (PPI-OT): Amid the Government-Opposition standoff in Parliament over Rahul Gandhi’s remarks in London, National Conference President Farooq Abdullah said that the Congress leader should be given an opportunity to speak in the Parliament. Farooq Abdullah at a conference in Jaipur said if Rahul Gandhi has said something wrong, then he should get a chance to speak in Parliament. Democracy is about letting people speak, he stressed.

The first week of the budget session’s second half was disrupted following protests by both the treasury and the opposition. While the ruling BJP-led alliance has demanded an apology from Rahul Gandhi over his remarks in London, the Opposition has been demanding a JPC probe into the Adani issue.

Farooq Abdullah said Parliament is for discussing the issues of the people. “We cannot topple the government, but we can raise the issue and seek answers from the government, and some solution can be found,” he said at the conference of Muslim leaders where Congress leader Salman Khursheed and party MLAs Rafeek Khan and Amin Kagzi were on the dais.

Parents in IIOJK protest against fixing minimum age limit for admission

Jammu, March 19, 2023 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, parents of school children protested against the Indian New National Education Policy (NEP) over fixing the age limit for admission in class I. Under the banner of All Jammu Parents Association, the protest was led by Amit Kapoor at Hari Singh Park, Jammu,

During the protest, the parents were raising slogans against the new education policy and demanding relaxation in the minimum age limit for admission in class I. They said the children studying in Upper KG and whose age is one day or two or three months or few days less than six years, were not being admitted in first class.

Amit Kapoor said the age criteria for children should be implemented from nursery or pre-nursery. He said the children who are studying at present should be admitted in the first class and the new education policy should be implemented from UKG. Amit Kapoor further demanded that like the Goa government’s decision of implementing new education policy from 2025-26, the IIOJK government should also avoid its immediate implementation as lakhs of parents and their children have gone into depression due to not getting admission in the first class.

New Delhi: Man assaults woman on road, forces her to sit in car

New Delhi, March 19, 2023 (PPI-OT): A man openly beat up a woman and forcefully made her sit in a car on the road in the Indian capital city New Delhi. A video of a shocking incident has surfaced on social media where a man was seen beating a woman in the middle of the road and forcefully making her sit in a car in New Delhi. Another man was seen on the other side of the car who also sat in the same car. The disturbing part is that the woman was manhandled in the busy traffic ridden road yet no one came forward to help the victim woman.

The incident happened on Saturday night near the Mangolpuri flyover. However, the identity of the man and the victim woman has not been identified yet. The car and driver have been traced. The investigation is underway to gather more information about the driver and the incident, the Delhi police official claimed.

Hours after the video went viral, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal took to Twitter to share the video of the incident and ensured strict action. She tweeted, “Taking cognizance of this viral video of a woman being forced into a vehicle and beaten up, I am issuing a notice to the Delhi Police. The commission will ensure strict action against these people”.

Notably, crimes against women are on the rise in the Indian capital as earlier this month a 28-year-old woman lost her life after being set on fire by her live-in partner following a dispute over drugs in northwest Delhi’s Aman Vihar. Since the beginning of 2023, Delhi has been witnessing back-to-back spine chilling murders in which women have been the victims.
