The Pakistani nation will join the Kashmiris in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), Azad Jammu and Kashmir and those across the world in observing Youm-e-Istehsal today (August 5) to denounce the Indian atrocities in the occupied state. The Foreign Office spokesperson said in a weekly press briefing on Thursday that during the day, the nation and Kashmiris would denounce Indian atrocities and express full support for the realization of the right to self-determination and peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant UNSC resolutions. India had let loose a reign of terror and suppression, gross and widespread violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, in an attempt to perpetuate its illegal and forcible occupation of IIOJK, he added. In an attempt to hide its atrocities, India, the serial violator of human rights, had employed censorship, and a crackdown on civil society, human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists, who were harassed and persecuted under the draconian laws, the spokesperson informed. We pay rich tributes to their struggle and sacrifices and assure them of Pakistan’s unambiguous, steadfast and all possible support for the realization of their right to self-determination.
