At a massive public meeting in Muzaffarabad,which followed three such rallies across Pakistan occupied Kashmir,Jamat-ud-Dawa Wednesday put the world on notice: solve the Kashmir dispute or face a fresh armed struggle that can spill beyond the borders of Kashmir.

“It’s the last chance for the international community to settle Kashmir issue peacefully. If the armed struggle begins again,it will spill beyond the borders of Kashmir,” JuD leader Amir Hamza said while addressing the rally.

Urging the international community to take “urgent steps” to end “the repression in Kashmir”,Hamza warned,“If the world fails,no power on earth can stop Kashmiris from reverting to a militant struggle.”

The rally was organised by Tehreek-e-Azadi-e-Kashmir (the movement for the freedom of Kashmir),an alliance of political organisations in Pakistan campaigning for secession of Kashmir from India.

The rally was attended by Hurriyat leaders Syed Yousaf Nasim and Ghulam Mohammad Safi,convenor of Hurriyat’s PoK chapter,JuD PoK chief Abdul Aziz Alvi,Jamaat-e-Islami leader Shaikh Aqeel-ur-Rehman,JKLF’s Rafiq Dar,Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam’s Mahmoodul Hassan Ashraf,Rana Shamshad Salfi,Saifullah Khalid and Abdul Aziz Madni.

JuD chief Hafiz Sayeed,however,did not attend. The United Jihad Council,a grouping of militant outfits operating in Kashmir,also stayed away.

Praising the Hurriyat for its role in the ongoing protests in Kashmir,Mansoor assured them of the complete support of Pakistanis.

“Pakistanis will offer their blood and children for Kashmir. You (Hurriyat) announce any programme,we will support you,” Mansoor said.

Slamming “the disappointing role” of the Pakistani government and “a few dozen Pakistani politicians” in the recent events in Kashmir,Mansoor said,“180 million Pakistanis are with Kashmiris.”
