    Kashmiris asked to thwart plan to turn LoC into border




    LONDON, July 15: The working committee of the UK body of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) has called upon the Kashmiri people to stand unitedly against attempts being made by India and Pakistan to turn the Line of Control into an international border.
    The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front working committee, which met in Birmingham on Monday, warned that any attempt to
    build a "Berlin Wall" between the integral parts of Kashmir would be met with strong resistance.
    The meeting, chaired by the newly elected president Shabbir Chaudhry, called for the world community to pay due attention to the
    plight of millions of Kashmiris who were suffering in two parts of Kashmir because of the forced division of the state and because of the armed forces of India and Pakistan fighting in Kashmir.
    Speaking at the meeting a visiting leader of the Kashmiri APHC, Yousuf Naseem, paid tribute to the struggle of the JKLF cadre
    and said that time would come when the dream for an independent homeland would be realised. He called for unity amongst all
    resistance forces in Kashmir and said that the whole nation depended on the good sense of the leadership to remain united in this
    critical hour to defeat enemy designs.
    In reply to a question from the floor, he said that the Kashmiris needed the good will and support of the people of Pakistan but
    could not be expected to take orders from anyone. "We are and shall remain the masters of our destiny," he said.
    Earlier, the JKLF members expressed deep concerns over the prevailing situation on the so-called 'LoC' and vowed to fight on if
    Kashmiri leadership was continued to be ignored in talks between India and Pakistan.
    The meeting unanimously declared that the real question in Kashmir was the inherent and inalienable right of the people of Jammu
    and Kashmiri to determine their future, which could be resolved by outside mediation but not suppressed through the barrel of the
    gun.
    Speaking at the meeting the organization's general secretary Azmat Khan, warned members of an international conspiracy of dividing J&K between India and Pakistan and said that both Indian and Pakistani leaders were working under cover to suppress the Kashmiri people's movement in order to perpetuate their hold on part of Kashmir under its control.
    "India is using brutal force and Pakistan is engaged in diplomatic warfare to retain the territory under its control," he said. "It is time our people on both side of the divide stood up and defeated the strategy of divide and rule."
    The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front leaders forged a new strategy for their diplomatic offensive and impressed upon its
    members to double their efforts to win the propaganda war.
    The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front members paid tribute to Kashmiri freedom fighter including those trapped in Kargil hill and said that their supreme sacrifices shall not be allowed to go in vein.
    The JKLF meeting condemned the arrest of their chairman Yasin Malik and his deputy Javed Mir and other All Pakistan Hurriyet
    Conference leader in Poonch district.
    The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front working committee also elected a 13-member central committee, which is to act as its
    supreme decision making body for UK and Europe.
