Srinagar: “Kashmir Solidarity Day” is being observed in Pakistan on Friday to condemn the “ongoing state terrorism” in Kashmir, Pak media reports said.
A resolution to this effect was adopted in an emergency meeting of the Pakistan federal cabinet held in Islamabad on Monday with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in the chair.
“Rallies, functions and walks are being held in different parts of the country as well as by Pakistanis and Kashmiris living around the globe to expose Indian atrocities and highlight the need for peaceful resolution of the longstanding dispute,” Pak media reports said.
In Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK), the main rally is scheduled to be taken out in Muzaffarabad, whereas similar rallies will be taken out Neelum, Jhelum Valley, Bagh, Rawalakot, Haveli, Kotli and other districts.
The Pak government has decided to initiate a number of measures to apprise the international community about “grave human rights violations” by the state forces in Kashmir. Special envoys would be sent to the selected world capitals to highlight the “Indian atrocities” in the valley.
World bodies like the United Nations (UN) and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and other human rights organisations will also be approached in this regard, ,media reports said.
