Firdous Ashiq Awan said the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) are also facing a Karbala-like situation and they have been boldly facing the Indian atrocities and state terrorism.

She further said Prime Minister Imran Khan, as ambassador of Kashmiris, will raise voice for them at every forum.
