ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The nation on Friday observed Kashmir solidarity hour from 12pm to 12:30pm to express solidarity with the Kashmiris of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan. Pakistanis expressed solidarity with residents of IoK over unprecedented atrocities and aggression being committed by Indian armed forces against them. The ‘Kashmir Hour’ observed throughout Pakistan, with the national anthems of Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) played in a show of solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris. Both the anthems were aired on all television and radio channels. All people and traffic stood still as the national anthems were played. The rally started with the recitation of the Holy Quran. Prime Minister Imran Khan, who requested all Pakistanis to come out on Friday to send a message of solidarity, led the rally outside the PM Secretariat. All the chief ministers and parliamentarians gathered outside the CM Secretariat buildings. All humans, traffic and vehicles stood still during the playing of national anthems from 1200 to 1205 hours. People remained out of their office buildings, houses, markets, malls and gather in nearby streets in the entire country. Flags, badges and other items depicting Kashmir solidarity distributed among people particularly youth and children across the country during the Kashmir Hour. There will be public awareness messages by prominent figures about Kashmir mobilization campaign on print and electronic media on Friday. ‘Kashmir Banay Ga Pakistan’ logo will be displayed on TV channels. Parliamentarians are holding rallies in their respective areas against Indian aggression in the occupied valley. Flags, badges and other items depicting Kashmir solidarity will be distributed among people particularly youth and children across the country. The day will be observed in a befitting manner through different activities to be organized by trade unions, corporations, chambers, civil society and people from different walks of life. In a series of tweet on Thursday, the prime minister said that the daily injuring and killing of Kashmiri civilians, including women and children, is all part of the ethnic cleansing agenda of the Modi government and it is illegal annexation of IOK. “The plan to change demography of IOK is a war crime under 4th Geneva Convention,” he said. Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Pakistanis must send a strong message to Kashmiris that the nation stands resolutely behind them. “So I am asking all Pakistanis for half an hour tomorrow stop whatever you are doing and come out on the road to show solidarity with the Kashmiri people,” he urged.
