Feb 5 meant to show India’s wicked face to the world: CM


Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said that Kashmir Solidarity Day was observed by the whole nation and the purpose of celebrating this day is to show Indian wicked face to the world.
He was addressing a public gathering at Faisal Chowk on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day on Wednesday. Provincial ministers, members of the provincial assembly, PTI leaders, workers and a large number of citizens also participated in the event.
The people lodged a strong protest against Indian brutalities. They were holding flags of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir and chanted slogans of ‘long live Pakistan’ and ‘Kashmir will become Pakistan.’ On this occasion, anthems of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir were also aired. Later, the siren was blared and one minute silence was observed. Bashahi Mosque Khateeb Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad led a special prayer for the success of freedom struggle of Kashmiri people and end to Indian occupation.
Addressing the gathering, the CM said that 185 days have been passed to the continued lockdown by the Indian armed forces in occupied Kashmir and the whole of Pakistan was agitating against this brutality. He regretted that India, which claimed to be the biggest democracy in the world, blatantly violated all democratic norms in occupied Kashmir.
India badly demeaned its democratic and secular identity by abrogating articles 35A and 370 of the Indian constitution, he added. The nation has given a strong message to the world that Pakistan firmly stood with the Kashmiris. Pakistan and Kashmir were Siamese twins and this peaceful agitation was writing on the wall for the Modi government, he added.
Usman Buzdar said that victory will be the fate of the Kashmiris. Prime Minister Imran Khan fought the case of Kashmir with absolute courage and no other leader fought this case like Imran khan who raised a strong voice in support of the Kashmiris. He said that Quaid-e-Azam termed Kashmir as the jugular vein of Pakistan and we cannot deviate from the Kashmir cause.
Pakistan will always be standing with the Kashmiris and all-out support will be continued, added Usman Buzdar. The chief minister emphasised that Kashmiris will succeed in their just struggle very soon adding that Pakistanis’ hearts beat in unison with their Kashmiri brethren. Lahore has a special relation with Kashmir and the strong relationship between Pakistan and Kashmir is unbreakable, concluded the chief minister.
