ISLAMABAD: Pakistani nation and Kashmiris across the world are all set to demonstrate support to their brethren in Indian occupied Kashmir on Solidarity Day today (Friday) against illegal Indian occupation of the state.
Comprehensive arrangements have been made to mark the occasion in a befitting manner and hallmark of the day would be human chain of Pakistanis and Kashmiris on all six bridges at the entering points of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) to reiterate complete solidarity with Kashmiri people.
Television channels and Radio stations would be airing special programmes to highlight different aspects of the Kashmir issue particularly Indian brutalities against innocent Kashmiris fighting for their freedom.
Besides portraying brutalities of the Indian forces through photo exhibitions, special functions have also been planned at educational institutions to apprise the new generation of the Kashmir issue and heroic struggle of the Kashmiri people for their right to self-determination.
These events will also help seek a peaceful solution to the Kashmir problem and remind the international community and the United Nations of their promises made to Kashmiris decades back for holding a plebiscite and respecting aspirations of Kashmiri people.
The day will dawn with special prayers for the martyrs of Kashmir, victory of the freedom struggle and expression of solidarity with the Kashmiri people, followed by mass rallies, symposia, walks-for-peace, conventions, meetings and speech declamations.
A one-minute silence will be observed to pay honour to Kashmiri shuhada and pay tribute to the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir for their continuous struggle to achieve their right of self-determination.
Also, across Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) elaborate preparations are afoot to observe Kashmir Solidarity Day to reiterate support with the Kashmiris in the Indian occupied state in their just struggle for the freedom of their homeland. –APP
