The National Assembly on Friday unanimously passed a resolution paying glowing tributes to the relentless and valiant struggle of Veteran Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Gilani for the right to self-determination of the Kashmiri people.
The resolution moved by Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, Ali Muhammad Khan, expressed deep grief and sorrow over the death of the iconic leader of the Kashmiri freedom movement.
The resolution recognized that the late leader devoted all his life to the freedom movement and always raised his voice for the rights of the oppressed Kashmiri people and against the Indian atrocities. Syed Ali Gilani gave further impetus to the freedom movement by facing all sorts of oppression including incarceration.
The house noted that the famous words of Syed Ali Gilani that ‘Hum Hain Pakistani Aur Pakistan Hamara Hai’ (We are Pakistani and Pakistan is ours) became a unanimous slogan of the Kashmiri nation. His life is a beacon of light for the Kashmiri youth.
The house strongly condemned the repressive Indian regime for snatching the body of Syed Ali Gilani from his family, denying him the proper burial as per the Muslim traditions, and lodging fake cases against the bereaved family. It demanded of the international community especially the Muslim Ummah stop India from such cheap tactics.
The house expressed the confidence that the Kashmiri people will succeed in their just struggle for the right to self-determination.
At the outset, the house offered Fateha for the departed souls of Syed Ali Gilani and Balochistan’s former Chief Minister, Sardar Ataullah Mengal.
The house has now been adjourned to meet again on Monday at five pm.
