We will not hesitate to lay down our life for the sake of peace, he added.

He went on to say people of Palestine have been rendering sacrifices since the several last decades.
Condemning the blatant human rights violations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K), the Speaker said that Indian troops have been given free hand to persecute the innocent and armless Kashmiri people.
He appealed to international community to play its role for establishment of peace in Kashmir. It is must that Kashmir issue be addressed as per UN resolutions for lasting peace in South Asia.
He lamented that people of Kashmir stand deprived of the basic facilities of life since the last one year. Over 22000 Kashmiri women have become widows and thousands of Kashmir youths have been martyred by Indian forces. Hundreds of Kashmiri women have been raped. The international community will have to play its role to grant the right to self-determination to Kashmiris.

Parliament will be made epicenter to highlight Kashmir issue at international level, he remarked.
