Sep 27 to be marked as “Kashmir Solidarity Day” against Indian barbarism

The federal government has declared to mark September 27 as “Kashmir Solidarity Day” to express solidarity with the poor Kashmiri people in India-occupied Kashmir against Indian barbarism.

According to a notification issued by the interior ministry on Wednesday, the day will be observed under the theme “Let us save the innocent children of India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir”.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan has very kindly approved September 27, Friday, as Kashmir Solidarity Day for holding public rallies across Pakistan to express their feelings with the people of India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” the notification states.

The ministry has recommended all related entities to plan activities to make it a successful event.

The Kashmir Cell of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has proposed several key messages, including “I am terrorised; I need food, medicine and care; I want my father back; We want to play too; I deserve a childhood too”. It also proposed two twitter trends “#HumansofKashmir” and “#ChildrenunderSeige”.

PM Imran is also scheduled to address the UN General Assembly on the same day. He has already revealed that he will raise the Kashmir issue in his address, exposing the brutal and illegal act of India on Aug 5 to annex the occupied territory.

The tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi escalated after India’s unilateral move by the BJP-driven government to overrule a 7 decades-old rule that gave the power of autonomy to the occupied and disputed Muslim-majority region of Kashmir, followed by massive deployments of troops in an occupied valley and prolonged curfew.

Right now, Several million Kashmiris are currently cut off from communicating with the outside world for more than a month, and India has strengthened its ferocious military clutches on the occupied state. Authoritarian Indian armed forces have ceased down all network facilities, including internet and landlines, banned protests and group gatherings, imposed curfews and deployed tens of thousands of troops into the region to escalate its existing military power to 900,000 soldiers in the occupied valley of Kashmir.
