ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will hold a big public gathering in Muzaffarabad on Friday (today) to express solidarity with the besieged people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The aim of this gathering is to send a message to the world about the continuing siege of Occupied Kashmir by Indian forces.
The gathering will also show Pakistan’s resolve to stand with Kashmiris in this hour of trial.
Meanwhile, all is set to accord rousing reception to Prime Minister Imran Khan on his day-long visit to AJK today to address a mass public rally in Muzaffarabad.
Posters and banners inscribed with slogans in favour of besieged Kashmiri people have been placed on walls and roads around the city.
The solidarity rally is the part of diplomatic campaign to stir world conscience over the plight of Kashmiris suffering the history’s worst kind of state-terrorism and violence at the hands of Indian forces.
In a tweet on Wednesday night, the premier had said the aim of the gathering was to send a message to the world about the continuing siege of the Occupied Kashmir by Indian occupational forces.
Imran Khan had said the gathering would also show Pakistan’s resolve to stand with Kashmiris in this hour of trial.
On September 4, PM Imran Khan had asked the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to urge India to halt ‘illegal actions’ in Kashmir.
“International community has the responsibility to pressurize India to halt and reverse its illegal actions and aggressive policies and postures in Occupied Kashmir,” PM Imran Khan had said while talking to Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir and UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Islamabad.
He had stressed the importance of immediate lifting of curfew, removal of restrictions on movement and communications, and respect for the fundamental rights of the people of Occupied Kashmir.
The prime minister had highlighted Pakistan’s deep concern over the worsening human rights and humanitarian situation in Occupied Kashmir because of the month-long complete lockdown and communications blackout in the occupied territory.
