GREAT people celebrate birthdays or observe death anniversaries of the Fathers of their nations not merely by pompous display of festivities but by strictly following the precepts and guidelines left by their founding fathers in letter and spirit.
Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah whose word was law for his followers. But he never acted like a dictator. He derived his power from the people to whom he always considered himself accountable. At a time he was offered life presidentship of the All India Muslim League. He refused by saying that he would like to come before the Muslim League Council every year and get himself elected its president on the strength of his performance.
Prof Stanley Wolpret in his book 'Jinnah of Pakistan' says:
'Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.'
The government and people of Pakistan, at home and abroad, observe the Kashmir Solidarity Day on 5th February every year to renew the pledge to continue the unflinching support to the Kashmiri people who are carrying on a just struggle to achieve their inalienable right to self-determination. The observance of the day since 1991 is aimed at conveying a loud and clear message to India that the Kashmiris are not alone in their struggle and sooner or later, it will have to give them their right to decide their political future by themselves as guaranteed by the relevant UN resolutions. It is also a reminder to the world community to fulfill its obligations towards resolving the long-pending Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistanis on this day hold seminars, conferences and demonstrations to highlight different dimensions of the Kashmir dispute and the gross human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian troops in the occupied Kashmir. It is a historical fact that India had forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir by landing its troops in Srinagar on 27th October, 1947, against the will of the Kashmiri people and in total disregard to the Partition Plan of the Indian Subcontinent.
Since 1989, when the people of Kashmir intensified their liberation struggle, the unabated Indian state terrorism has so far resulted in the killing of nearly one hundred thousand innocent Kashmiris and disappearance of thousands in custody. During the mass uprising in the Indian-occupied Kashmir from 2008 to 2010, millions of people took to the streets in Srinagar and other towns with the demand of their right to self-determination. However, instead of respecting the sentiments of the people, Indian troops and police personnel responded with the use of brute force, killing and maiming thousands of people during the period. In the meantime, many international human rights bodies and the European Parliament expressed concern over the discovery of unidentified mass graves in the territory strongly apprehending that the graves contained the dead bodies of those who were killed in custody and fake encounters by Indian troops.
Conversely, Pakistan has been consistent in giving all out support to the just cause of Kashmiri people and has acted as a strong advocate of the Kashmir cause at the international fora. The Pakistanis have a number of legitimate and genuine reasons to express solidarity with their Kashmiri brethren as both share strong bonds in respect of religion, geography, culture, aspirations and economy. The founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, had termed Kashmir the jugular vein of Pakistan. His commitment to the interests of the Kashmiris had driven him to visit Jammu and Kashmir three times before 1947 (in 1926, 1936 and 1944) during which he held extensive talks with the Kashmiri leadership.
The incumbent Prime Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Nawaz Sharif right from assuming office in June 2013 has been calling for settling the dispute in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council. At the same time, the attachment of Kashmiri people with Pakistan has also been remarkable. The attachment of the people of Kashmir with Pakistan can also be gauged well from the fact that the occupied Valley has been reverberating, from time to time, with pro-Pakistan slogans. Pakistani flags are hoisted in Indian occupied Kashmir on the national days of the country, whereas such days of India are observed as black days.
The people of Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir are unanimous in deploring the fact that the response of international community to the just struggle of the Kashmiri people has been disappointing. It has failed to hold New Delhi accountable for the genocide of Kashmiris and impress upon India to provide the people of Jammu and Kashmir their inalienable right to self-determination. The world needs to take cognizance of the fact that Kashmir has become a nuclear flashpoint as it involves two nuclear-armed neighbours — Pakistan and India. The fact is that due to India’s unrealistic and intransigent attitude, the peace of the entire South Asia is at stake.
The observance of Kashmir Solidarity Day on 5th February becomes significant in view of the above hard realities of history. Let all the peace and justice-loving nations of the world come together in expressing practical solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian occupied Kashmir.
