Pakistan is signatory of UN Charter; It has to accept our right of self-determination: Altaf Hussain
London, Feb 11 : All areas in Pakistan, except Punjab, have now been made colonies of the military establishment of Pakistan. In fact, these areas like Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, and Gilgit-Baltistan have been occupied by the demonic military establishment of Pakistan, Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain said.
He added that even Seraikis and Kashmiris are equally victims of atrocities at the hands of the Pakistani military.
In his briefing, Hussain noted, If any country that utterly fails to secure the lives and rights of its citizens, then the citizens have a due right to claim their right of self-determination and they should approach the International Court of Justice to rid of the slavery and attain the right of self-determination.
The UN Charter allows people to claim their right of self-determination and Pakistan is among the signatories of that Charter of the UN, he added.
Hussain said that he never talked of dividing Pakistan, but had simply suggested for the right of self-determination and it is per the international laws under the UN's aegis. While citing certain provisions from the UN Charter, he stated that since Pakistan is the signatory of the UN Charter on the right of self-determination, all the oppressed nations in Pakistan, including Mohajirs, Sindhis, Balochs, Seraikis, Gilgitis, Baltistanis and Pashtuns, can rise for their rights of self-determination.
He asked the oppressed nations to explain under which law they are secure in Pakistan, especially when the armed forces of the country are kidnapping the citizens and enforcing them to disappear. Arbitrary arrest and extrajudicial executions are rampant in Pakistan and none of the authority is checking these blatant human right violations. The demonic military of Pakistan is apart from all sorts of atrocities and extrajudicial executions.
The MQM leader also said that the oppressed nations should bear in mind that the atrocities, arbitrary arrests, enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings would not stop and none would rise against them for their security and secure future, but verily to do it by themselves.
Hussain said that the oppressed nations have to rise for their secure future as the right of self-determination is the last remedy in this regard.
For Pashtuns, he said, The tribal people were in past, misused by the ghoulish military establishment of Pakistan and during the Afghan war, the entire population of Pashtuns was bathed in blooded and their properties were looted and finally they were forced to abandon their land and become internally displaced persons (IDPs). It was the military and not the Pashtuns that introduced the culture of Kalashnikov and narcotics. The ethnic riots among the Pashtuns and Mohajirs were all planned and executed by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) of Pakistan.
For Sindhis, he stated that since they claim that their land is occupied by the Pakistani military so they should then come forward and claim their rights of self-determination. They should join the Mohajirs as they are the reality and joining them would be in Sindh's greatest interests. The Pakistani military would keep conspiring against the Mohajirs and Sindhis and would never like to see them united on one platform. Great Sain G. M. Syed had in his life said that only Altaf Hussain could help Sindh rid of the Punjabi military's occupation, the leader added.
While addressing the Kashmiris, the MQM founder further noted that Kashmir only belongs to the Kashmiris and when they would get freedom from India, they should never join Pakistan but should choose an independent state's status or else they would keep bleeding. The ghoulish military of Pakistan draws and consumes huge funds in the garb of Kashmir cause and it proves that they are only concerned with the pecuniary goals.
The cities of overseas Mohajirs in Pakistan have been occupied, while Mohajir nation is facing genocide under the Pakistani military. All the Mohajirs living in foreign countries should join hands together and raise their issues before the international fraternity. Today, we have to utilise every single available tool like social media to fight our battle with the demonic military of Pakistan and secure the future of our coming generations, the leader added.
