PM Imran calls out worldwide media for ignoring Indian atrocities in IoK

PM Imran calls out worldwide media for ignoring Indian atrocities in IoK

Instead of highlighting the Indian oppression in a disputed territory of Kashmir, he said the global media is giving far more space to the protests in Hong Kong which is part of China. He said Kashmiris will not accept India's decision of ending Jammu and Kashmir's special status and will come out when the restrictions are lifted. "We will continue reminding the global community that eight million humans have been locked up in Kashmir", he vowed.

Waving national and Azad Kashmir flags, the protesters amassed at D-chowk roundabout, which breaks through the capital, and formed a human chain, which was also joined by Prime Minister Imran Khan and his Cabinet members. "It is part of China", Khan observed, adding: "On the other hand, Kashmir is an internationally-recognized disputed region but unfortunately, the world media is more anxious about Hong Kong".

Earlier on October 9, China supported Pakistan's stance on the Kashmir issue and reiterated that the issue is a dispute leftover from history, and should be properly and peacefully resolved based on the UN Charter, a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry said.

The tweets came ahead of India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping's meeting to reconfigure ties strained by tough talk on the occupied Kashmir issue by both sides. "In Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir 100 thousand Kashmiris have been killed over 30 years of fighting for their right to self-determination", he added.

From 1954 until August 5, 2019, Jammu and Kashmir enjoyed special status under the Indian Constitution, which allowed it to enact its own laws.

The Defence Minister also cautioned Pakistan for brewing terrorism on its ground and suggested that the country worked on eliminating terror and maintain brotherhood in the region.

Addressing the event, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan said the premier had promised to the Kashmiri people that he will approach each and every forum to highlight their plight.

"I understand the anguish of the Kashmiris in AJK seeing their fellow Kashmiris in IOJK under an inhumane curfew for over 2 months".
