ISLAMABAD: The government has unveiled a special postage stamp in connection with ‘Youm-e-Istehsal’ being observed on Wednesday to highlight the wave of terror unleashed by Modi government in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a news conference, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said the stamp is aimed at sensitising the world about the atrocities being committed in occupied territory.
Given the worldwide reach of the stamp, he said this symbolic step will transmit a very strong message to the international community. He said 5th August is a black day in the history of Kashmir and Pakistan.
Shibli Faraz said India has further stoked tension in the region through its illegal actions of 5th August and the world community.
The information minister appealed to the nation to express full solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian-occupied Kashmir, and demonstrate that the Kashmiri people are not alone and they stand with them.
Shibli Faraz said there is an organized and effective plan to fully observe Youm-e-Istehsal. Special functions have been arranged for this purpose whilst state-owned media will also promote the Kashmir cause.
In his remarks, Minister for Communications Murad Saeed shared the main features of the design of postal stampage. He said the postal stamp shows one year completion of illegal actions in occupied Jammu and brutalities on Kashmiris.
He said Kashmir is the jugular vein of Pakistan and Prime Minister Imran Khan has forcefully pleaded the case of Kashmir and unmasked the fascist Hindutva mindset of Modi government. He said the day is not far away when Kashmiris will get freedom from the Indian clutches.
