Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said that the Pakistani nation will always stand by the oppressed people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
The PM Said this while addressing a Kashmir solidarity rally in Islamabad, where he also took part in a human chain formed to express solidarity with Kashmiris, the Radio Pakistan reported.
“We will continue supporting the people of occupied Kashmir and our movement for human rights of Kashmiris will become a sea one day,” the prime minister vowed.
“We are repeatedly giving a message to the world that eight million Kashmiris have been under siege for over two months”, the PM added.
PM Imran Khan said it is an irony that the international media is giving much coverage to the protests in Hong Kong while it is ignoring the oppression against eight million people of occupied Kashmir.
The premier said the world should know that the people of Kashmir have gone beyond the fear of death. There will be millions of people on roads the day curfew is lifted from occupied Kashmir, he added.
Imran Khan said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has committed a grave mistake by illegally annexing Kashmir.
“Such oppressive tactics will not subjugate Kashmiris' just struggle for right to self-determination and their struggle will lead to their independence from Indian occupation,” the PM asserted.
In occupied Kashmir, the sufferings of the people enters the 68th consecutive day due to military lockdown and communications blackout.
The huge presence of Indian troops has made the life of Kashmiri people a hell. The internet and mobile phone connectivity continues to remain completely suspended adding to the miseries of the besieged people.
The publication of newspapers has also been hampered as they fail to update their online editions while journalists are unable to report from the ground as the territory remains virtually cut off from the outside world.
