Gigantic rally led by SU-VC Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat marks special day at SU to exhibit solidarity to Kashmiri brethren

05.08.19 Kashmir Solidarity Rally (2)JAMSHORO: Our Kashmiri brethren have rendered invaluable sacrifices. India, despite most formidable and sinister atrocities has not been able to silence the most vocal and most judicious voice of Kashmiri people. We stand in utter support of the exemplary struggle of people of Kashmir, pay them rich tribute for their sacred fight and salute their valor, courage and commitment.

The above remarks were advanced by VC-SU Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat in his address at a rally taken out from Allama I. I. Kazi round-about of the varsity to the campus central library by faculty, officers and students to exhibit solidarity to Kashmiri brothers and sisters.

Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat in his remarks further said that occupied Kashmir had been brought to witness unprecedented horrors in form of most violent massacre as India had been exploiting its inclement troops to act as ruthless oppressive machinery to stifle freedom voice of people of Kashmir.

“I insist relevant world custodian clusters to intervene, play their role to bring genocide of innocent, unarmed and peaceful freedom fighters to an end in Kashmir. India has unleashed a reign of terror there which the conscientious world quarters need to curb forthwith”, Dr. Burfat opined.

The vice chancellor added that both Pakistan as well as India could not afford indulging in yet one more war as that war would be a nuclear one, capable of jeopardizing regional as well global peace”.

Citing scholarly observations, Dr. Burfat elaborated that India, having failed in its nefarious designs to repress just struggle of people of Kashmir; had resorted to initiation of clandestine yet heinous process of demographic transformation of population to turn majority Muslim presence in the valley into a marginalized minority. This, the vice chancellor said India was doing by replicating Israeli model that helped Israel out-populate Muslims in the West Bank.

“Terrible human rights excesses, belligerent formidable violations of established international codes of conduct, subjugating peoples’ will; restricting their rightful civil, cultural, religious and political liberties, silencing their voice, suppressing their freedom is akin to subjecting them to slavery. This all, added by tremendous intensity of violence, is what makes Kashmir issue a case of worst human debacle and tragedy. And it should be perceived as such”, Dr. Fateh argued.

The participants of the rally carried placards bearing slogans in support and solidarity of their Kashmiri brethren and their rightful struggle.

Deans, academic and administrative heads, senior academicians, researchers, civil society leaders, social activists and general public vehemently participated in the rally.

On the occasion, Dr. Ishrat Afshan Abbasi, Dr. Muhammad Ramzan Kolachi, Prof. Shaaban Sahito and others also spoke.
