Solution for Occupied Kashmir is its Liberation through Jihad by Armed Forces, not Plebiscite under the United Nations
On 10th April, 2017, Pakistan's Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, condemned the killing of eight Muslims in Occupied Kashmir, who were protesting against the Indian parliament's lower house's by-election. And the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan said in a statement, "We call upon the international community to urge India to put an immediate end to the ongoing bloodshed of innocent Kashmiris and behave as a responsible member of the international community by honoring its commitments to hold a transparent, free and fair plebiscite under the auspices of the UN in accordance with the UNSC resolutions to ascertain the wishes of the Kashmiri people."
After the martyrdom of Burhan Wani on 8th July 2016, widespread protests erupted in the Kashmir Valley, causing unrest in the valley for nearly half a year, in which more than 90 Muslims were martyred while over 15,000 Muslims and more than 4,000 Indian security personnel were injured. The violence which erupted after his death was described as the worst unrest in the region since the 2010 Kashmir unrest, with Kashmir being placed under 53 consecutive days of curfews imposed by Indian authorities. However, the tyranny of the Hindu State in Occupied Kashmir persists. On 9th April 2017, Indian forces martyred eight Muslims in different parts of the Kashmir Valley, who were protesting against holding of by-elections of Indian parliament’s lower house. The next day four more Kashmiri Muslims were martyred by Indian forces. On 14th April 2017, a video showing a Kashmiri Muslim tied to the bonnet of an Indian army jeep as human shield went viral. On 15th April 2017 another video went viral showing Indian forces brutally torturing Kashmiri Youth and forcing them to raise anti Pakistan slogans. However, despite of all these brutalities, every passing day meets with the increased resolve of the Muslims of Occupied Kashmir to be liberated from the Hindu State and become part of Pakistan.
Every demonstration and burial procession in Occupied Kashmir is filled with the flags of Pakistan. The Muslims' anger and enmity towards the Hindu State has risen to a level that we have not seen before. A delegation comprised of former Foreign Minister Yashwant Sinha, former chairman of the National Minorities Commission, Wajahat Habibullah, retired Air Vice Marshal Kapil Kak and Sushobha Barve, executive programme director of the Centre for Dialogue and Reconciliation visited occupied Kashmir in late 2016. Their report claimed that, “Young Kashmiris have lost their fear of Indian forces, and they are ever more eager to die resisting routine high-handedness than submit to a life of discrimination and humiliation”. An Indian army general, General Hooda, says the stone-throwers no longer appear to fear the Indian security forces, even frontally attacking Indian army garrisons.
Despite the continuous sacrifices of the Muslims of Kashmir and their love for Pakistan, the current, Bajwa-Nawaz regime, like previous regimes, has not extended the necessary support to the Muslims of Occupied Kashmir, a strong support to end the Indian occupation and ensure Kashmir's annexation to Pakistan. The liberation of Occupied Kashmir is an inevitable matter, were the Muslims blessed by rulers that do not fear the US and its so-called international community and thus declared Jihad, mobilizing Pakistan’s mighty armed forces. Occupied Kashmir can be liberated within days under a sincere leadership, ruling by Islam. However, the current cowardly rulers do not dare to disobey their master, America, that wants India to be the dominant player in the region, at the expense of the Muslims and Islam.
Only the Khilafah "Caliphate" on the Method of Prophethood will take the daring step of declaring Jihad, moving our armed forces and liberating occupied Kashmir. It is high time that the Muslims surged forwards to establish a Khilafah "Caliphate" which unifies their armies as one force of millions, with the blessing of Allah swt. Allah (swt) said,
﴿فَلاَ تَهِنُواْ وَتَدْعُوۤاْ إِلَى ٱلسَّلْمِ وَأَنتُمُ ٱلأَعْلَوْنَ وَٱللَّهُ مَعَكُمْ وَلَن يَتِرَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ﴾
“So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islam), while you are having the upper hand. Allah is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds” [Muhammad: 35].
