Islamabad, 6 August 2019: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto 
Zardari has asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to rise to the occasion and 
provide leadership for the Kashmir cause instead of only one tweet and 
speech in the National Assembly.

Chairman Bilawal speaking in the National Assembly said that it is 
unfortunate that Speaker of the House was unable to complete the House 
as former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, PML-N leader Rana 
Sanaullah and two representatives from South and North Waziristan are 
absent even today. Similarly, the House was incomplete on the occasion 
when the budget was presented in the Parliament.

Addressing the Kashmir issues he said that India has been using cluster 
bombs on innocent Kashmiris, educational institutions are closed, every 
kind of communication has been cut off, extra Indian troops have been 
sent to Kashmir and all the known political leaders have been arrested. 
The revoking of article 370 of the Indian constitution is an attack on 
the ideology of India, UN and international laws, democracy and the 
right of self determination of Kashmiri people. This opens the door to 
make Kashmiris a minority in their own land. This will not be accepted 
by the Kashmiri people, we the Pakistanis and the people of India should 
also follow suit in rejecting this treacherous act.

Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is renowned for fighting for the Kashmir 
cause as he had said that we share history, geography, religion, blood 
and culture with the Kashmiri people. We will not remain silent at the 
time when Kashmiri brothers and sisters are calling us for help. It is 
unfortunate that PM Imran Khan did not give any policy statement in the 
House and the foreign minister is not even in the country.

Chairman PPP said that Prime Minister Modi is an extremist ruler who is 
the butcher of Gujrat and now occupies the post of Indian Prime 
Minister. He asked that if Pakistan had ever elected an extremist Prime 
Minister like Modi then would have India welcomed it? India has become 
an occupying force in Kashmir. Modi's mandate is a hate mandate, he has 
been inflicting harm on Kashmiri people for the last five years and it 
is ironic that our PM Imran Khan was hoping and praying for his 
re-election. Modi has arrested the entire Kashmir leadership because 
every Kashmiri considers India's act as illegal and the former Chief 
Minister of Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti has said that the day India revoked 
article 370 is the darkest day of Indian democracy.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari asked Pakistani government to take drastic 
diplomatic actions and must engage United Nations and demand for a 
special session of OIC so that we can demonstrate that every Muslim 
country is united on Kashmir issue. He said that a commission should be 
constituted to investigate human rights violations in Kashmir. He also 
asked international community to take notice of Indian action.

Chairman PPP said Simla Agreement says that no side will take unilateral 
action. PPP hopes that Pakistani PM will put forward the case of Kashmir 
at all international forums but unfortunately, the government is just 
boasting the photo session of the US visit and is busy in crushing the 
Opposition. He said that we stand at the crossroads of history. The 
history will ask us where we were when Kashmiri youth were showered with 
pellet guns and bombed with cluster bombs.

We have only two options left now, Chairman Bilawal stated. Either to 
accept aggressive, treacherous and extremist Modi's hegemony desert our 
Kashmiri brethren and live a life of humiliation or to rise to the 
occasion and reject Modi's ideology. The latter is the honorable option, 
he said. Pakistan must act wisely as India has lost its credibility and 
legitimacy as a democratic state by revoking article 370. We have to 
speak as one voice, Pakistani voice. We must shun all our differences 
and unite for our Kashmiri brethren. We had a PM who had said that we 
will fight for ten thousand years for Kashmir cause, he concluded.
