Ready to sacrifices our lives, but won't compromise on motherland: PoK leader to Pak

Brussels [Belgium], Oct. 22 (ANI): Taking a strong note of atrocities committed by the Pakistan authorities on the people of occupied Kashmir ( PoK), United Kashmir People's National Party (UKPNP) leader Sardar Shaukat Ali Kashmiri on Saturday warned them that Kashmiris could die, but they won't compromise on their motherland.

Delivering a tough message on 'Black Day', the UKPNP leader said, "This day is very important for all those Kashmiris who do care for their own people and want them to be safe and secured; and this day is also a message to those who are committing atrocities, that Kashmiris can die, but they cannot compromise on their motherland."

"Today, on October 22, Jammu and Kashmir was attacked by kabalis, who tried to capture our motherland and thousands of our young people, women, elderly and children were killed by them. Today is also a day to remember brave Kashmiri mujahids (people performing Jihad) Master Abdul Aziz and Maqbool Sherwani, who fought back kabalis. And it is the result of their struggle that the people of Jammu and Kashmir even today remember them and hail their valour and deplore those who had started bloodshed in our country," he said.

Dubbing the Pakistani Government for calling itself "well-wisher" of the Kashmiri people as "unfortunate", he said, "The Pakistani Government that claimed itself to be well-wisher of the Kashmiri people, launched an execrable conspire against us. On the one hand, they signed a standstill agreement with us and accept the freedom and sovereignty of our state; while on the other hand, they launch a deplorable conspiracy in Peshawar and abducted Kashmiri women, killed children, and thousands of people confined in their hoses and charred."

"Today, members of the UKPNP and its associates are gathering at Rawalakot, Muzaffarabad, Rawalpindi, Mirpur and other places and making it a point that they would not make any compromise on their motherland."

This was the day when tribal hordes with the connivance of the Pakistani state, devastated large parts of Jammu and Kashmir violating the Standstill Agreement between Pakistan and the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir, which resulted in the death of thousands of innocent people Hindus and Muslims alike and resulted in the first Indo-Pak war in 1947-48 and subsequent wars thereof.
