Jamaat-e Islami (JI) will hold a Kashmir March in Islamabad on December 22 to put pressure on the rulers to shun their silence and extend practical support to the besieged people of the Indian held region.
JI Chief Senator Sirajul Haq announced this on Monday and said that thousands of people from across the country will gather in the federal capital to express solidarity with their brethren who had become virtual prisoners of the Indian forces since August 5—the day Indian government abrogated the special autonomy of the held region and unleashed worst human rights violation on the millions of Kashmiris.
The meeting which was attended by JI Secretary General Ameerul Azim and Naib Emir Liaqat Baloch reviewed the arrangements of the march.
The meeting expressed concern over the silence of international community and the UNO on the human rights abuses in the held valley. At the same time they warned the rulers against the growing anger of the people over Islamabad’s apologetic stand on Kashmir. They said Kashmiris had been fighting the case of realization of Pakistan for seven decades.
“The rulers betrayed the people of Kashmir and they have to face the wrath of the nation for damaging the cause,” said Senator Siraj.
