Pakistan high commission Ottawa organises function to express solidarity with people of Kashmir


Islamabad, February 05, 2013 (PPI-OT): Pakistan high commission, Ottawa organised a function on 5th February, 2013 to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir who are struggling for their right of self determination since 1947.

The Function began with the recitation of the Holy verses, followed by the reading of messages of the President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan, issued on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day.

Mr. Akbar Zeb Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Canada, in his address said that the Kashmir cause has many facets and is not simply a legal dispute between Pakistan and India. It constitutes an unfinished agenda of partition of 1947, precisely because the aspirations of the Kashmiri people for self determination remain unfulfilled. The High Commissioner also said that Pakistan seeks a comprehensive solution to the Kashmir issue, in accordance with the Security Counsel Resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri peoples.

Deploring the grave injustice being done to the Kashmiri people, the high commissioner urged all freedom loving people across the globe to raise their voice against this injustice and to give hope to Kashmiri aspirations of living in peace, in freedom and with honour.

Mr. Azhar Ali Khan, a seasoned Pakistani-Canadian Journalist, expressing his views as the keynote speaker, said that there are many legitimate and genuine reasons for the people of Pakistan to express solidarity with their oppressed Kashmiri brethren because both share strong bonds in respect of religion, geography, culture, aspirations and economy.

The event was attended by the members of Canadian-Pakistani Community and was followed by a buffet lunch at the Chancery.
