ISLAMABAD: The government has unveiled a special postage stamp in connection with Youme-e-Istehsal to be observed on Wednesday (tomorrow) to highlight the wave of terror unleashed by the Modi government in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said the stampage was aimed at sensitizing the world about the atrocities being committed in the occupied territory.
Given the worldwide spread of the stampage, he said this symbolic step will transmit a very strong message to the international community.
Shibli Faraz said India had further stoked tension in the region through its illegal actions of August 5 and the world community should take cognizance of it.
He said August 5 was a black day in the history of Kashmir and Pakistan.
The information minister appealed to the nation to express full solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, showing to the world that the Kashmiri people were not alone and that they stand shoulder to shoulder with them.
In his remarks on the occasion, Minister for Communications Murad Saeed shared the main features of the design of postal stampage.
He said the postal stamp showed the one year completion of illegal action in Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, and its brutalities on Kashmiris.
He said Kashmir was jugular vein of Pakistan and the Prime Minister Imran Khan was the person who had forcefully pleaded the case of Kashmir and unmasked the fascist and Hindutva mindset of the Modi government at the world level.
He said the day was not far away when Kashmiris will get freedom from the Indian clutches.
