Comprehensive campaign to be launched tomorrow to highlight Kashmir dispute globally: FM
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says a campaign will launch on 25 January to highlight the Kashmir issue through print, social and electronic media.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, he said a cultural show will be arranged at PNCA on January 27 regarding Kashmir.
He said a photo exhibition about Kashmiris’ struggle will be held across the country on January 28th.
The Foreign Minister said a seminar to lift the Kashmir problem will be held in Islamabad on January 30th. He said Chairman Syed Fakhar Imam, Kashmir Committee, will hold a press conference on the Kashmir issue on January 31st.
He said a function will be organized at the convention center to share and discuss with the youth the ground realities of the held valley and the ration will be distributed in the Kashmir refugee camps on the same day.
He further said there will be an event at Aiwan-e-Sadar about Kashmir Day in which the entire diplomatic corps will be invited. He said on February 5th, four to five separate events including human chain formation were scheduled to actively highlight the Kashmir problem.
He added that Prime Minister Imran Khan would also address a public gathering in Mirpur to raise the Kashmir issue. He said there will also be rallies taking place across the country to express solidarity with the Kashmiri brethren.
After India’s 5th August decision to revoke the special status of Occupied Kashmir, the Foreign Minister said regional peace and security is under pressure.
He said Occupied Kashmir is experiencing a humanitarian crisis and ground realities are corroborating our narrative on Kashmir. He said one hundred and seventy-five days have gone by from the Kashmir lockout where all fundamental rights are usurped. He said more than 8 million people are, physically and psychologically, literally prisoners.
Prime Minister Imran Khan believes regional peace is being put at risk in this context, the Minister said. Indian actions, he said, represent their unilateralism and are not serious about resolving issues through bilateralism. He said that the present Indian government follows its Hindu agenda.
