Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Friday mentioned that the Kashmiri individuals are dealing with immense difficulties, ache and persecution below a continued army siege for the final one yr, reaffirming Pakistan’s help for the Kashmiris’struggle for independence from Indian rule.

“Pakistan will stand by the people of the besieged valley till its final victory,” he asserted.

Addressing a press convention in Islamabad accompanied by Information Minister Shibli Faraz and Special Assistant for National Security Moeed Yousuf, the federal minister regretted that nobody apart from the Kashmiris is aware of what has occurred through the previous one yr within the occupied area.

“To date, Kashmir suffers a communication blackout and basic human rights violations,” the minister regretted.

The minister mentioned the world ought to empathise with Kashmir after having skilled life in lockdown and enduring restrictions on their freedoms. He highlighted that Kashmiris have been enduring a “double lockdown” (the coronavirus lockdown in addition to restrictions imposed by Indian occupation forces) for the previous one yr, he added.

He mentioned that he wished to ship a message of solidarity to Kashmiris everywhere in the world. “The Pakistani nation stood with the Kashmiris yesterday, stands with them today, and will stand with them till the final victory,” Qureshi mentioned.

Describing Prime Minister Imran Khan as an envoy of the Kashmiri folks, who had put ahead the case of Kashmir within the United Nations, the minister mentioned that the premier has had greater than 100 engagements with a purpose to spotlight the plight of Kashmiris over the past two years.

“The struggle of Kashmiris on August 5 is a new turning point for independence. On this day, New Delhi snatched their flag, tried to erase their identity by dividing them; but whether it was Hindu pandit or a Buddhist follower, no one accepted it,” the minister mentioned.

Stressing that the United Nations recognises Kashmir as a disputed area, the international minister slammed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for forcibly making an attempt to combine it into India. 

He described Indian-occupied Kashmir as “the world’s largest military zone where basic human rights are violated”.

“Shining India has been seen as Burning India during the past few months,” he mentioned, referencing widespread riots in India towards the Modi regime’s Hindutva insurance policies. 

Qureshi requested the nation to point out solidarity with Kashmir by commemorating the injustices they’ve suffered by the hands of India since August 5, 2019.
