Special Assistant to the PM on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Friday said that Pakistan will continue raising voice for the oppressed people of Indian-occupied Kashmir who have been demanding their right to self-determination. Addressing the Kashmir Solidarity Youth Convention here, she said the world must listen to the sobs and cries of Kashmiri children who are facing the worst form of Indian state terrorism and brutalities.
She said Prime Minister Imran Khan has become the ambassador and advocate of Kashmir to heal the wounds of Kashmiri children. She said that the Prime Minister is contacting important capitals to apprise them of the ground situation in IoK. She said the human rights champions should also come forward and extend their support to the oppressed Kashmiri people. She regretted that Indian-occupied Kashmir has been turned into the world's biggest prison where people have been detained to their homes whilst the human rights organizations, the media and the UN bodies have no access to the valley.
Separately, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that women of Pakistan are standing with their Kashmiri mothers, daughters, and sisters in raising their voice against Indian oppression continuing in Occupied Kashmir. She was addressing a rally organized by women employees of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to express solidarity with the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Dr Awan said the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir are writing a new chapter through their determination, struggle and blood to get rid of Indian oppression. She said the day is not far off when Kashmiris' struggle will bear fruit and they will soon come out of the Indian slavery. She said Kashmiri people are not being allowed to offer Friday prayer and other religious activities for the last one-and-and-a-half month.
She said Prime Minister Imran Khan is vociferously raising the issue of Kashmir at world fora and will certainly highlight this matter in his address at the UN General Assembly and during his interactions with the world leaders, rights organizations, and the international media.
