An official logo, expressing the unwavering support of the nation to the people of Kashmir and Indian Occupied Jammu, was launched in the capital on Saturday.
The top military and civil leadership, in a safety huddle held in Islamabad on Wednesday, had determined that August 14 — Pakistan’s Independence Day — could be observed to express solidarity with the Kashmiris and the motto of”Kashmir banega Pakistan” (Kashmir will become Pakistan) will be increased all around the nation.
“While India’s independence day of August 15 would be regarded as a black day,” Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said while addressing a joint session of parliament the same day.
The logo launched relies on “Kashmir banega Pakistan” theme. Word Kashmir, written in color, reflects sacrifices. The flag of Pakistan signifies Pakistanis’ resolve to go to any extent for the freedom of Occupied Kashmir while the illegal occupation of India is highlighted by the border around the emblem and atrocities it is committing in the valley.
Pakistan has strongly condemned India’s “illegal and unilateral” movement taken on August 5 to scrap special status of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and New Delhi’s efforts to alter the demography of the contested region and ethnic cleansing of Kashmiris.
A resolution, passed by the joint session of parliament on Wednesday, rejected India’s “illegal, unilateral, reckless and coercive attempt” and “other regressive measures” aimed at changing the contested status of IOK as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
Additionally, it denounced “deployment of additional troops and atrocities in Indian-occupied Kashmir” and “the recent surge in unprovoked shooting and shelling on unarmed civilian population throughout the Line of Control (LoC) and use of cluster bombs by Indian forces from Azad Jammu and Kashmir”
