New York: Former Information Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Mushtaq Minhas has appealed to the Pakistani community in New York to convene meetings with the American politicians and keep the issue of Occupied Kashmir alive.
He said this while addressing a reception given in his honor by the President of Pak-American Think Tank Raja Razzaq, and Leader of the Muslim League-N Boston Irfan Chaudhry at a local restaurant in Brooklyn, on Mushtaq’s arrival in New York.
Prominent members of the community including political and social personalities also participated in the reception.
Talking to reporters, Mushtaq Minhas said that Occupied Kashmir is not just a border dispute between India and Pakistan but a matter of human rights. It is the responsibility of the Pakistani and Kashmiri communities living in the United States to present the case of Kashmir in every political and international forum.
On this occasion, Irfan Chaudhry and Raja Razzaq said that the service rendered by Mushtaq Minhas to the people of Azad Kashmir by entering politics will always be remembered.
The participants openly discussed the current political situation in Pakistan, the Kashmir issue, and the upcoming elections, while the Overseas Pakistani and Kashmiri community shared their suggestions with Mushtaq Minhas so that they could convey them to the US government.
