A day after the terrorist state of Pakistan attempted to interfere in India’s affairs by protesting against the historic decision of the Narendra Modi government’s decision to revoke special status to Jammu and Kashmir, prominent Mohajir leader Nadeem Nusrat said that Pakistan had “no moral right to speak on behalf of Kashmiris.”
According to the reports, Nadeem Nusrat, who is the chairperson of a US-based advocacy group called Voice of Karachi (VOK), stated that Pakistan must first provide the same rights to all ethnic minorities in its own territory before speaking on behalf of Kashmiris.
Voice of Karachi’s Nadeem Nusrat has called for the creation of autonomous ‘Greater Karachi’ within Pakistan, says,”Until Pak gives same rights it’s demanding for Kashmiris to its own Mohajirs,Baloch,Pashtuns&Hazaras citizens,it has no moral right to speak on behalf of Kashmiris” pic.twitter.com/Jy3IO3uHlZ

“Until Pakistan affords the same rights it is demanding for Kashmiris to its own Mohajir, Baloch, Pashtuns and Hazarah citizens, it has no moral right to speak on behalf of Kashmiris,” said Nusrat.
“While Pakistan demands right to a referendum in Kashmir, is it willing to grant the same right to its own disgruntled ethnic minorities?” questioned Mohajir leader.
He further added, “For decades, Pakistani ministers have been publicly conducting meetings with Kashmiri separatist leaders overseas. How would Pakistan react to Indian minister’s meetings with exiled Mohajir, Baloch and representatives of other persecuted ethnic or religious minorities of Pakistan?”
The US-based group, which represents expatriate Mohajirs, called for the creation of an autonomous “Greater Karachi” within Pakistan. The group advocated for complete autonomy to all ethnic communities and regions within Pakistan.
Nadeem Nusrat also announced that a global campaign will also be launched to escalate its demand for the restructuring of Pakistan. He added that they will soon issue the chief articles of its proposed constitution a day before Pakistan’s Independence Day.
As India rendered Article 370 defunct and bifurcated Jammu and Kashmir, the Pakistani Foreign Ministry had condemned the decision saying it was as a violation of United Nations resolutions. In a statement, Pakistan Foreign Ministry said on Monday, “Pakistan will exercise all possible options to counter the illegal steps.”
