Kashmir Solidarity Day observed in Lahore


LAHORE: The Kashmir Solidarity Day was observed in the provincial capital on Friday.

Rallies, functions and walks were held in different parts of the city to condemn the ongoing state terrorism and violence by the Indian Army in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).

The day was observed on the call of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi against the recent spate of killings in IOK.

The Quran-o-Sunnah Movement took out a rally from Markaz Jamiat Ahle Hadith at Lawrence Road. The participants carried placards and chanted slogans against the fresh wave of state terrorism in IOK.

Meanwhile, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan strongly condemned the brutal use of force by the Indian Army in occupied Kashmir. He said that an attempt to suppress the voice of Kashmiris had been foiled. Such reprehensible attempts aimed at silencing the voice of Kashmiris from reaching the international community would never succeed, he added.

Punjab Assembly Speaker Rana Muhammad Iqbal highlighted the need for the peaceful resolution of the long-standing dispute of Kashmir. He expressed Pakistan’s support to the Kashmiris in their just struggle for securing their inalienable right to self-determination.

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Maulana Muhammad Amjad Khan drew attention of the international community towards the Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir and urged for a peaceful resolution of the dispute.

Kashmiri leaders Ghulam Mohyuddin Dewan and Sardar Azeem Sarwar called upon the international community to fulfil the promise made with the people of Kashmir by implementing the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
