ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan on Friday said Prime Minister Imran Khan was contacting important capitals to apprise them of the ground situation in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
“Pakistan will continue to raise voice for the legitimate and principled stance of Kashmiri people for the right to self-determination,” Firdous Ashiq Awan said while addressing Kashmir Solidarity Youth Convention in Islamabad.
She said the world must listen to the sobs and cries of Kashmiri children who were facing the worst form of the Indian state terrorism and brutalities.
The special assistant said Imran Khan had become the ambassador and advocate of Kashmir to heal the wounds of Kashmiri children.
She said the human rights champions should also come forward and extend their support to the oppressed Kashmiri people. She regretted that occupied Kashmir had been turned into the world’s biggest prison where people had been detained to their homes whilst the human rights organizations, the media and the UN bodies had no access to the valley.
The special assistant to the prime minister on information and broadcasting on August 8 said Pakistan was going to take up the matter with the United Nations Security Council.
“India has denied Kashmiris their basic rights. It has imposed restrictions on Kashmir media and communication,” Firdous Ashiq Awan had said while addressing press conference in Islamabad.
She had said founder of Pakistan Muhammed Ali Jinnah had read mentality of extremist Hindus and those who had difference of opinion with Jinnah’s Two Nation Theory would have realized it now. She had said the leadership of the country fully expressed solidarity with Kashmiris and sent this message to the world that Kashmir was the jugular vein of Pakistan.
