Prime Minister Imran Khan yesterday announced that he would hold a rally in Muzaffarabad on Friday to send the world a message regarding the military curfew imposed in Indian-administered Kashmir.
In a message posted on the social networking platform Twitter, the prime minister said that the rally would aim to show the world that the people of Pakistan stand in solidarity with people of Kashmir.
“I am going to do a big jalsa in Muzaffarabad on Friday, September 13, to send a message to the world about the continuing siege of IOJK by India; and to show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands resolutely with them,” the premier tweeted.
PM Imran is set to address the United Nations later this month to highlight situation in the valley in front of world leaders. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the UN the same day.
Earlier this week, PM Imran had welcomed the growing concern from leaders and organisations around the world pertaining to India’s rights violations in Kashmir.
In his Twitter post, PM Imran said he appreciated the calls by the international community, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) “for India to lift its 6-week long siege of IOJK.”
“The international community must not remain indifferent to the massive human rights abuses by Indian forces under cover of a brutal siege,” the premier said.
Speaking of the UNHCHR, he said he really appreciated its statement issued on Monday that had called on India to ease the restrictions in Kashmir.
PM Imran requested the UN Human Rights Council to set up an independent probe right away to investigate human rights
violations in Kashmir.
