President, PM’s special statement on Kashmir Day
Prime Minister Pakistan Imran Khan said Today, we observe the Kashmir Solidarity Day to reaffirm our unflinching support for our Kashmiri brothers and sisters who have been subjected to an inhuman lockdown and communications blockade for six months now.
The unprecedented length of these restrictions has fully exposed the ‘fiction’ of India’s democracy and its scant regard for basic human norms.
The Kashmiris, the Muslim Ummah, Pakistan and the international community have rejected India’s travesty of law and justice.
India has turned 8 million Kashmiris into prisoners in their own land through the deployment of over 900,000 occupation troops.
History has few precedents of such suffocation and violation of the fundamental rights at this scale.
Tens of thousands of innocent people have been arbitrarily detained and thousands of young boys abducted and incarcerated at undisclosed locations. This is a true manifestation of Indian state terrorism.
The international community, major human rights organizations and the international media have been unanimous in their condemnation of India’s unacceptable actions.
India stands before the world exposed as a majoritarian and authoritarian polity, tramping upon the basic rights and freedoms of the Kashmiri people.
Pakistan demands immediate lifting of the military siege and communications blackout as well as rescinding of India’s illegal and unilateral actions.
President Pakistan Dr Arif Alvi said Pakistan will continue to raise the issue of Jammu & Kashmir at every available forum. India’s illegal actions of August 5 have further strengthened the bond between the people of Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir and Pakistan.
The Government and the people of Pakistan will continue to extend their political, moral and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people until they get their legitimate right to self-determination as per the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
