On Kashmir Solidarity Day PM Imran And COAS Say It's Time To Resolve Kashmir Dispute

Prime Minister Imran Khan urges the world community to take notice of India's crimes against humanity.

PM reassured Pakistan’s complete support of the Kashmir people's legitimate struggle for self-determination. On Saturday PM Imran Khan and Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that it is time to resolve the very old issue of Kashmir as per the aspirations of its people and according to the principles of UNSC resolutions.

The Kashmir Solidarity Day was observed by the entire nation to reaffirm its unwavering support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle.

At 10:00 am one-minute silence was observed across the country. Solidarity walks were being organized in the provincial headquarters, Islamabad, Muzafarabad, and Gilgit. At important points linking Azad Kashmir and Pakistan human chains were formed.

Prime Minister Imran Khan restated that the Pakistani nation stands united with the Kashmiri people and urged the global community to take notice of India’s crimes against humanity.

The premier also wrote on his Twitter account that fascist policies of oppression and violence by Modi have failed to crush the spirit of the Kashmiri people's resistance in the Indian-Occupied Kashmir (Iok).

The Prime Minister stressed that now it is time the international community takes notice of India’s grave human rights violations in Indian-occupied Kashmir which includes war crimes, genocidal acts, crimes against humanity, and the threat of forced demographic change.

Premier underlined that these all are in complete violation of the Geneva Conventions, further adding that it is the world’s responsibility to ensure an impartial plebiscite in Kashmir.

Prime Minister Imran Khan wrote that the plight of the people of Iok must not be ignored by the world and their undeniable desire for freedom from the draconian military occupation of the Indian state.

To mark the day in his separate statement the premier said that it is time for the global community to make India accountable for its heinous crimes in Indian-Occupied Kashmir and to work towards a peaceful and just solution to the Jammu and Kashmir dispute according to the UN Security Council Resolutions and the Kashmiri people wishes.

The premier further stated that the IoK issue was an internationally recognized dispute and its resolution was firmly anchored in the relevant United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.

He stated that the human rights situation had continued to worsen in Indian-Occupied Kashmir following unilateral and illegal actions taken by India in August 2019.

The premier highlighted that for almost two and a half years of inhuman military siege has resulted in the martyrdom of hundreds of Kashmiri people.

The PM said that brute force was indiscriminately used by the Indian occupation forces against the Kashmiri children, men, women, and the elderly.

The Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa while paying tribute to the Kashmiri people, their resolve and valiant struggle stated that they were bravely facing the gravest human rights violations and lockdown in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir valley by the Indian forces.
