PM Imran reaffirms steadfast support to Kashmiris’ right to self-determination

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that Pakistan always stood steadfast for the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination and would continue to support this just struggle till Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) was liberated from illegal and barbaric Indian occupation.


In a series of tweets in connection with Kashmir Martyrs Day, he said Pakistan has always stood steadfast for the Kashmiri right to self-determination and that day is not far when they will be liberated from the clutches of Indian illegal occupation.

“We salute Kashmiris for their continued struggle against the illegal and barbaric Indian occupation of Jammu & Kashmir,” PM Imran said.

The premier said that the martyrs of 13 July 1931 were the forefathers of today's Kashmiri resistance, adding that their descendants have, generation after generation, laid down their lives for freedom and today they continue to valiantly fight and defy a Hindutva Supremacist regime bent on demographic engineering to wipe out the Kashmiri people and their identity.

Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and world over are observing Kashmir Martyrs Day today to pay homage to martyrs of July 13, 1931.

On July 13, 1931, the troops of Dogra Maharaja had killed 22 Kashmiris, one after the other, outside the Central Jail in Srinagar during the court proceedings against one Abdul Qadeer who had asked the Kashmiri people to defy the Dogra Rule.
