President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan said that India is the most violent state of the world. It has illegally occupied Kashmir since last seven decades till date. Around 45 percent of Indian Occupied Kashmir’s adult population suffers from mental illness Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to the lockdown and killings happening in the area. He was addressing the Kashmir Solidarity Seminar and Walk organized by Women University Swabi at Swabi.
He advised the students to fight with Islamophobia, he requested the Vice Chancellor to prepare a force of female students as India’s RSS is preparing Indian young girls force.“We must turn this issue global, we want Kashmir issue to be discussed in every street and city of the world. Your Kashmiri brothers and sisters are being killed, you must stand against this Indian state policy of genocide and state terrorism. India has imposed a military siege and they are killing, maiming, dishonoring women. The Kashmiris demanding the right to self-determination are being mercilessly killed. Mass blinding are taking place in the valley. Now they are bringing in Hindus from all over India into IOJK. Thousands of Indians are being granted Kashmiri domiciles and the speed is not receding. After August 5 the international community, the media and civil society called out India. India has violated every known international law and humanitarian law.
He asked the young students to use digital technology for sensitizing and highlighting the Kashmir issue on global forums.
“India unfortunately will not stop as many world powers have strategic and economic interests. We must not let the momentum decrease; we must capitalize this opportunity. Numerous Parliamentarians and parliaments around the globe have spoken up.
He urged that as students they should not be disheartened and instead reach out to their peers. He said that with the power of social media everyone can be an advocate for Kashmir.
He lauded the academic leadership of the Vice Chancellor Professor Shahana Urooj Kazmi and termed the Women University Swabi as lucky to have such an accomplished academician as their Vice Chancellor.

Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Shahana Urooj Kazmi welcomed the President on the auspicious occasion and appreciated his worthy efforts to highlight the Kashmir issue on global forums.
“Academia and students need to play a vital role in highlighting Kashmir issue. Women are being victims of sexual and physical abuse in the Indian occupied Kashmir valley. We cant be silent on such drastic human rights violations from the Indian state”, Dr. Kazmi added.
