Kuala Lumpur, MINA – Some delegations of Southeast Asian scholars have returned from Pakistan after visiting Kashmir issues. They offered the solution of a humanitarian approach to the Government of Pakistan in overcoming the Kashmir issue.

Imaam Jamaah Muslimin (Hizbullah), Yakhsyallah Mansur, the only representative from Indonesia said if talking about the humanitarian approach, it would not be separated from the religious approach.

“There is a new approach, which is a humanitarian approach. Not just security approach. If it is a security approach, it won’t be finished. Humanity is part of the teachings of Islam, namely rahmatan lil ‘alamin, “Imaam Yakhsyallah in Kuala Lumpur told by telephone on Friday afternoon, November 8.

He revealed the delegation of scholars was divided into two, some returned from Pakistan and others visited the Kashmir region within Pakistan, namely Azad.

Imaam Yakhsyallah said the return of the delegation would be followed by various actions, especially in terms of welfare for Kashmiri Muslims.

“Lord willing, later from Malaysia will send ambulances. Hopefully, the Indonesians can participate in sending ambulances, because so many refugees no one is paying attention, “he said, referring to the conditions of refugees in the Azad region.

He explained in terms of education, he planned to provide scholarships to children in Kashmir, such as the educational institutions he has fostered provide scholarships to Thai and Filipino children.

The next step, he said to visit parliament so that they would voice more about Kashmir later.

“If we now have a focus on the Palestinian issue, hopefully, later there will also focus on the Kashmir crisis,” he added.

The delegation of 10 scholars from Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia) arrived on Pakistan on November 4 at the invitation of the Government of Islamabad.

During the four-day visit, the delegation met with the President of Pakistan, Chair of Parliament, Chair of the Kashmir Problems Commission, as well as a number of other Pakistani scholars and officials. (T/Sj/P2)
