A week-long photographic exhibition in connection with Kashmir Solidarity Day began at the Rawalpindi Arts Council (RAC) on Friday. The exhibition depicted the atrocities committed by the Indian armed forces on the innocent people of Indian-held Kashmir.

Over 100 pictures showcasing the human rights violations of the Indian security forces after the brutal killing of Burhan Wani were exhibited on the occasion. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Tahira Aurangzeb said that Kashmir is a vital part of the unfinished agenda of the partition of the Indian subcontinent, and the world community should play its role in ending human rights violations and forcing India to implement the United Nations (UN) resolution to give Kashmiris the right to self-determination.

Addressing the attendants, Naheed Manzoor said the Kashmir issue had been pending with the UN for over 60 years due to while the suffering of the people continued at the hands of the Indian forces. She said the time had come to end the brutality of Indian forces in Indian-held Kashmir.

Moreover, RAC Director Waqar Ahmed said the exhibition was part of an awareness campaign about the brutal actions of Indian forces against innocent Kashmiris who were fighting to achieve self-determination. He said that RAC had arranged a number of events to observe Kashmir Solidarity Day, including theatrical performances by schoolchildren to highlight the issue.
