ISLAMABAD -- A large number of people Monday participated in a rally organized by MUSLIM Institute (MI) from Kulsoom Plaza to China Crossing here to express solidarity with Kashmiris on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day.

The members of civil society, political and social sector, students, lawyers and journalists carried placards and banners displaying slogans about condemnation of state terrorism by Indian occupied forces.

They demanded the right of self-determination for Kashmiris, appreciated their freedom struggle, expressed solidarity with them and urged international community to play its due role and fulfill its pledges made with Kashmiri people.

Speakers urged the world forums, governments and rights bodies to play their role in stopping atrocities in the Indian-administered Kashmir.

Former Ambassador Fozia Nasreen, Leader of APCH Abdul Hameed Lone, Altaf Wani, Former Minister AJK Farzana Yaqoob , and PR Coordinator MUSLIM Institute Tahir Mahmood were leading the rally.

Addressing the participants of rally, the speakers said Pakistani nation stands with Kashmiris till their right of self-determination is practiced. In occupied Kashmir Indian forces are not allowing journalists to go to the areas where they are committing human rights violations. India has also initiated demographic changes through settlements particularly in Jammu and such brutal acts had triggered massive protests in the valley. India is using the false propaganda to declare the freedom movement as terrorism but it failed.

Speakers emphasized to use the social media and other sources to raise the voice for Kashmiris struggle for freedom. It is actually India which is committing the acts of state terrorism.

Speakers said Pakistani nation stands with Kashmiri people and will continue every kind of political, diplomatic and moral support till freedom from Indian occupying forces.

Kashmir is a disputed territory under the resolutions of United Nations.

Speakers said draconian laws have been enforced in occupied Kashmir by India to suppress the demand for self- determination by the people.

Speakers admired strong will of Kashmiris to confront the torment and illegal detention by India. Furthermore settlement of Hindus in Kashmir is artificial dressing of democratic front to counter the self-determination struggle. By not giving the right of self- determination to Kashmiris, India has exposed its claim of so called world's biggest democracy.

Speakers said Kashmir issue should be resolved in conformity with UNSC resolutions in line with the will of people of Kashmir on humanitarian basis and international community should play an effective role in this regard.

The human rights organizations should take notice of flagrant violations of fundamental human rights by Indian state apparatus and declare the same as state terrorism. Pakistan should adhere to its principled stance of right of self-determination for the people of Kashmir, and Muslim countries should put diplomatic and political pressure on India so it resolves the issue according to its pledges. Pakistan should also contact and brief the United Nations Security Council on current situation in Kashmir.
