The NED University of Engineering Technology on Saturday held a symposium on “the Challenges Being confronted by Kashmiris”.

The event was attended by Lt Gen (retd) Moinuddin Haider, Tehmina Janjua former Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan and Associate Professor of Social Sciences IBA Dr. Huma Baqai spoke online.

Addressing the reception, the Dean Faculty of Architecture and Management Sciences Prof. Dr. Noman Ahmed said that through social media, today’s youth should keep the world informed about the real situation of atrocities against Kashmiris.

On the occasion, Lt Gen (r) Haider said that Kashmir is our paradise and we will not give up until its freedom.  Under the slogan “Kashmir will become Pakistan” we are united.

Highlighting the serious consequences of the hybrid war that has overwhelmed the minds of more young people, Janjua said that now is the time to find a lasting solution to this problem.

Associate Professor of Social Sciences IBA Dr. Huma Naz Baqai said that the rulers should do what is in favor of Kashmiris. If we want to support Kashmiris, we have to raise this issue in every forum so that the real face of Modi and RSS could be exposed before the United Nations.

She added that UN Charter gives the right to freedom but the real goal is to counter Indian propaganda.

NED VC Prof. Dr. Sarosh Hashmat Lodi said that Kashmir is not only geographically important for Pakistan but also socially and culturally. Kashmir has been the lifeblood of Pakistan for centuries. Jammu and Kashmirs are suffering oppression and barbarism. This region, which is called Paradise-like, is full of the blood of innocent people.
