PM announces rally in Muzaffarabad to show solidarity with Kashmiris


Prime Minister Imran Khan declared on Wednesday that he’ll hold a rally in Muzaffarabad within the”continuing siege” of Indian-held Kashmir. We wish to”show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands resolutely with them,” he explained on social networking.

On Monday, the PM had called upon the United Nations Human Rights Council to set up an evaluation commission to research human rights abuses from Indian-administered Kashmir as advocated from both OHCHR reports about the territory.

Khan welcomed the concern and needs of the community leaders and UN officials for India to raise its siege of the Himalayan territory. “The international community must not remain indifferent to the massive human rights abuses by occupation Indian forces under [the] cover of a brutal siege,” he explained.

“The time to act is now.”On August 5, Modi’s government revoked the freedom of this Muslim-majority land where tens of thousands of individuals are killed in an uprising against Indian rule since 1989, the majority of them civilians.

New Delhi sent reinforcements into the half a million soldiers stationed in Kashmir, cut telephone lines and the world wide web, put limitations on movement and thousands that were detained, according to sources.

The turning of the Himalayan kingdom of seven thousand people to a fortress of barricades and barbed wire hasn’t averted protests and clashes taking place. Kashmir, divided between India and Pakistan has been the spark for two wars and clashes between both arch-rivals that are nuclear-armed. The territory has witnessed a rebellion against Indian rule mainly civilians.
