KARACHI: Pakistan Businesses Forum (PBF) Vice President and Former Chairman Standing Committee of FPCCI, Ahmad Jawad has said the wickedness and brutality of the Modi regime has been fully exposed before the world and India could not retain its illegal occupation over occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian government's policy of hatred had threatened peace in the entire region. The Indian government wanted to change the demography of Kashmir, however, its attempts seem to be in vain.
Kashmiris are writing a history of courage, bravery and determination with their continued grapple for freedom in the face of immense pain, disappointment and inaction.
He said as per the new map by the government of Pakistan, we are challenging India's illegal occupation of Kashmir and claiming our right on the area through the map, he said. PBF official said entire business community of Pakistan is criticising the Indian government for illegally taking away the rights of the Indian minorities."
The private sector would equally raise their voice globally until the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir get their right to self-determination, he said.
As on August 5 2019, India had revoked the special status or limited autonomy granted to Jammu and Kashmir under the Indian constitution which is sheer violation and west put limp in their mouths.
Jawad also said that the Indian government was also attempted to isolate Pakistan in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) region through SAARC CCI which is condemnable act and it's a straight move to sabotage SAARC business liaison towards Pakistan
"Though we understand trade ties and business relations need a sharp boost to incentivize peace as there is a strong feeling that enhanced connectivity between India and Pakistan will create corridors of peace but New Delhi should first change their mindset".
Jawad also called upon the world community especially FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers) and Confederation of Indian Industry to play their serious role in this regard.
