Lahore: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday rejected the Indian Supreme Court’s judgment, endorsing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move in 2019 to deprive the Occupied Jammu and Kashmir of its special status by revoking Article 370.
Former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is also the PML-N President, in a statement and through a post shared on X noted that the verdict passed by India’s top court had no value, just like the steps taken on August 5, 2019, which, he stressed, was against the United Nations resolutions.
The lie about Kashmir being an integral part of India would not turn into a fact because of the Indian Supreme Court’s assertions, Shehbaz remarked. He said Indian top judiciary act like a Bharatiya Janata Party worker and had also shown similar illegal approach in the past on the Babri Mosque issue.
The PML-N President promised that his party would raise their voice under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif in favour of the Kashmiri brethren at all levels, adding that they were standing side-by-side with the brothers and sisters of Kashmir in their struggle.
Similarly, Maryam Nawaz, the PML-N vice-president and chief organizer, in a separate statement described the verdict passed on Monday as another Indian lie.
“The Kashmiri people, Pakistan and the world reject India’s deceit,” she said and added that India’s Supreme Court committed a crime which would always be remembered as a dark chapter. “Jammu and Kashmir belongs to the Kashmiris, no matter how many gimmicks India resorts to,” she maintained.
She said all attempts made by India to subjugate the Kashmiris had failed and added that the UN Security Council resolutions and international law applied to the Kashmir dispute.
