ISLAMABAD: Wife of Kashmir’s liberation leader Yasin Malik, freedom fighter Mushaal Hussein Mullick on Friday said she was visiting 400 educational institutes in Pakistan to mobilise youth on the long-standing dispute of Kashmir.
Addressing Kashmir Solidarity Youth Convention in Islamabad, she said, “I have been going in almost 400 educational institutes within Pakistan and it was my dream to start the mobilization drive for engaging the youth (on this issue).”
Referring to bravery of her husband for not backing down on the issue despite being tortured and imprisoned, she said since she had married a lion, she had to be a lioness and she had to prove it to the world.
“It is not easy. Every day is very tough for us. We have to go out with iron nerves,” she said.
Mushaal also urged the lawyer community to represent Kashmir at the International Court of Justice and International Criminal Court as there was less representation of Pakistan there.
“Kashmir is basically a legal case. It falls in international humanitarian law and human rights law, but we have very few experts on that. So, I would suggest the lawyers that Kashmir needs experts on ICJ and ICC fronts,” she said.
On this occasion, Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said Prime Minister Imran Khan was contacting important capitals to apprise them of the ground situation in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
“Pakistan will continue to raise voice for the legitimate and principled stance of Kashmiri people for the right to self-determination,” Firdous Ashiq Awan said while addressing Kashmir Solidarity Youth Convention.
She said the world must listen to the sobs and cries of Kashmiri children who were facing the worst form of the Indian state terrorism and brutalities.
