ISLAMABAD: The present Nawab of Junagarh Mohammad Jahangir Khanji has appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan to become an ambassador of Junagarh as he did in the case of Kashmir and highlight the issue of liberation of the state from Indian occupation, at all international forums.
In a statement, the Nawab said India and Pakistan should discuss the issue and settle it peacefully through dialogue.
The Nawab of Junagarh said the government of Pakistan should also actively pursue the Junagarh on the same footing as Kashmir issue and work for its settlement.
He said ‘Junagarh is Pakistan’ is not only a slogan of Junagarh State but also a dream seen by the ancestors of both Quaid-i-Azam and Nawab of Junagarh, Nawab Mahabat Khan.
Requesting Imran Khan to become ambassador of Junagarh, he said it was the time for Pakistan to highlight the serious concern to world community regarding Indian forces’ occupation of Junagarh as this was against the international law.
At the time of independence of Pakistan, the Junagarh State was under the Muslim rulers and Nawab Mahabbat Khanji the Nawab of Junagarh had signed the accession with the then governor general of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
Indian troops, in their fresh act of state terrorism, martyred three Kashmiri youth during a cordon and search operation at Nagbarean Tral area of Pulwama district in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday.
According to the Kashmir Media Service, the operation was going on till last reports came in.
Human rights violations have shown a massive increase in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir since Aug 5, 2019, when Modi-led fascist government repealed special status of the state and imposed military siege.
A report released by the KMS said Indian troops were continuously committing systematic human rights violations with impunity in the occupied territory.
It deplored that innocent Kashmiri youth were being killed in fake encounters and during so-called cordon and search operations on daily basis by Indian forces.
