Md Jubair: Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan has said that Kashmir Solidarity Day will be observed on Sunday with traditional zeal to express complete solidarity with the people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan in a statement said the day he will be observed all across Pakistan and Azad Jammu Kashmir with a renewed pledge to continue all-out political, moral and diplomatic support to the Kashmiris’ just struggle for their right to self-determination.
“Prime Minister of Pakistan Shehbaz Sharif will address the joint session of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly to show solidarity with our brothers and sisters in IIOJK”, he said, adding that solidarity rallies would be held at all district and tehsil headquarters, cities and towns and human chains would be created on all bridges connecting Pakistan with Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Reiterating Kashmiris’ pledge to take the ongoing liberation struggle to its logical conclusion, the AJK Prime Minister said, “The people of Kashmir will not allow the blood of their great martyrs to go in vain.”
Referring to Modi government’s nefarious designs in the territory, he said that India’s RSS-influenced regime was hell-bent on changing the demographic in occupied Kashmir.
He said, “Kashmir is not a land dispute but is a matter of right to self-determination of the Kashmiris. India had held Kashmiris hostage by the dint of force. India, he said, has besieged Kashmir militarily, he lamented.
Sardar Tanveer Ilyas, stressing the need for highlighting the issue with its historical perspective, said that Pakistan’s survival was also linked to the freedom of Kashmir.
The AJK Prime Minister said that the government of Azad Kashmir would continue to play its role to strengthen the freedom struggle.
