Foreign Minister Qureshi leads a rally, APHC protest outside IHC
Youm-e-Istehsal was observed on Thursday to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people on completion of the two-year military siege of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
It was on August 5, 2019, that the special constitutional status of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir was scrapped by the Modi government.
A series of events were arranged in order to denounce the Indian unilateral illegal actions against Kashmiri people as well as the atrocities being carried out by the Indian forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
One minute silence was observed and the traffic was also halted for one minute and sirens were be played.
Posters and billboards were displayed at the main roads of Islamabad to highlight the plight of Kashmiri people and expose the atrocities being committed by the occupation forces in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
A rally was taken out at the Foreign Office led by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people. The rally was attended by a large number of people including federal ministers.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir held anti-India protest demonstration outside the Indian High Commission.
Addressing the protesters, Hurriyat leaders said the Modi regime’s action of abrogating Articles 370 and 35-A is unconstitutional, undemocratic and contrary to the basic principles of political values.
They said, Modi’s move is also against the judicial authority because the issue of Article 370 is in the Indian Supreme Court.
The Indian move to repeal the special status of the territory was also against the United Nations resolutions and international laws, they added.
