NEW YORK (92 News) – Iconic billboards at Times Square in New York lit up with ‘Kashmir Siege Day’, ‘Kashmiri Lives Matter’ signs in a show of solidarity with the eight million residents being held captive in the Himalayan valley.

As the Indian siege of Kashmir is set to enter a second year, Pakistani Ambassador in US Asad Khan shared footage of the scenes in the heart of the big apple on his Twitter handle.

“Scenes at Times Square as Kashmiris mark a full year of their imprisonment on August 5. That is one full year of forced disappearances, torture, and a siege that has been intensified on the pretext of Covid-19. #LetKashmirSpeak #OneYearSiege”, the caption of the post read.

The illegal actions of August 5 were aimed at ending the Muslim identity of the Kashmiri people in IIOJ&K. India is also divided on the steps taken on August 5, he said, reminding that the people of Kashmir rejected the move by India.
