ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will head a new campaign for the rights of the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) that will start from today.
The announcement of a week-long campaign to highlight the lockdown of Kashmiris in IOK by the prime minister was confirmed by Foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the fundamental rights of the people in IoK have been violated by India, adding, “According to Simla agreement, India and Pakistan were supposed to hold bilateral talks on Kashmir.”
He further said, “However, as you have seen, the focus of India is more towards unilateralism than bilateral talks.”
The foreign minister said that PM Imran has a very clear policy on truthfully shedding light on the troubles of Kashmiris.
Earlier today, Imran Khan posted a tweet in which he wrote, “I want all Pakistanis, whether they live in the country or overseas, to support the 8 million Kashmiris who have been kept under siege by the Indian government for nearly 6 months.”
On 24th January, the prime minister once again urged Pakistanis to come out on 5th February to show solidarity with Kashmiris.
