Kashmiris living on both sides of the line of control and world over are observing right to self-determination day today. The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution on 5th January 1949 recognizing basic Human Rights of Kashmiri people and promising to grant right to self-determination to Kashmiris through an independent and transparent plebiscite.
APHC leaders in occupied Kashmir in their statements said 5th January 1949 is an important day in the history of Kashmir. They said time has come that India respect and implement the UN resolutions on Kashmir and resolve this dispute in accordance with aspiration of Kashmiri people. In Azad Kashmir and Pakistan, different political, social and religious organizations have chalked out a number of programs, seminars and rallies to draw the world’s attention towards solution of the longstanding Kashmir dispute.
