IIOJK face Indian oppression on daily basis during Ramazan: AJK President


Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry on Friday said that while celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with great fervour in the libeqrated territory, we must not forget our defenseless brethren on the other side of the Line of Control (LOC) who were facing the worst Indian repression, and should especially pray for their freedom.

He said this in a message on the eve of Eid ul Fitr falling on Saturday (April 22) in the country including AJK.

He maintained, “Our real Eid will be on the day when our brethren will be celebrating the occasion in a free environment after freedom from the Indian clutches.”

While extending Eid greetings to the Muslims of Pakistan and across the world on behalf of the people of both AJK and ocqqqcupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK) Sultan Mahmood regretted that our brethren on the other side of the LOC were celebrating this Muslim festival under the Indian guns.

The AJK President said, “We have observed fasts, and offered worship and prayers in a free environment during Ramazan, but our brethren in IIOJK faced new tricks of Indian repression on a daily basis even in this holy month which is painful.”

He condemned India and its occupation forces for holding the drama of a temporary ceasefire during the month of Ramazan.

Barrister Sultan Mahmood assured on the occasion that the people of the held territory were not alone in their just struggle.

“We fully share your pain, miseries, and wounds, and our sympathies are with you,” he underlined.—APP
