Staff Reporter
Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday expressed solidarity with people of Indian-occupied Kashmir, saying Pakistan will always stand by them to counter India’s “hegemonic ambitions” the way it has in the past.
“There can never be a compromise on Kashmir,” Gen Bajwa said in his Independence Day message to the nation, according to a tweet by the director general of Inter-Services Public Relations.
“Reality of Kashmir was neither changed by an illegal piece of paper in 1947 nor will any other do it now or in future,” he added, rejecting India’s withdrawal of special status for occupied Kashmir.
Gen Bajwa said the Pakistan Army is “fully alive to the sanctity of Jammu & Kashmir” and will remain prepared to perform its part in line with its national duty for the cause of Kashmir.
“We shall stand in the face of tyranny, regardless of the cost,” the chief of army staff vowed.
General Qamar Bajwa said, Pakistan will stand by Kashmir and the army ‘will remain fully ready to perform its part’ in line of their national duty for the cause.
The tweet further said that no force can change the reality of Kashmir, not now, nor in the future. The COAS said ‘Pakistan has always stood by Kashmiris against India’s hegemonic ambitions’ and always will.
