ISLAMABAD: The nation is observing ‘Youm-e-Istehsal’ today on Wednesday to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people on completion of one year military siege of Indian-Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
On 5th August last year, the special constitutional status of Occupied Kashmir was scrapped by the Modi government and a debilitating communication blockade has been imposed ever since.
One minute silence at 10AM is to be observed across the country. The traffic across the country will also come to a halt for one minute.
A host of events have been arranged in order to denounce the Indian unilateral illegal actions against Kashmiri people as well as the atrocities being carried out by the Indian forces in Indian illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over will observe ‘Youm-e-Istehsal’ to denounce illegal and unconstitutional step taken by India on this day last year to strip the special status.
On this day, the whole nation will give a message to their Kashmiri brethren that they are not alone rather the people of Pakistan will always support their struggle for freedom.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said Modi government’s revocation of the special status of Occupied Kashmir last year has turned the disputed region into an ‘open-air prison’ with its economy destroyed.
In an exclusive interview with a foreign media outlet, the prime minister said said Modi was responsible for undermining his country’s legacy of secularism. “India fell under the control of an extremist ideology [propounded by] the RSS,” he said.
The prime minister said India Muslims are facing resembles what happened during the extermination of Jews in Nazi Germany. He said Pakistan has exhausted all possible routes to peacefully resolve its dispute with India.
