Prime Minister Imran Khan announced on Wednesday that he will be holding a huge rally in Muzzafarabad on Friday to show solidarity with the people of Kashmir.
The premier took to his Twitter handle and announced that he will do a big ‘jalsa’ in Muzzafarabad and show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands ‘resolutely with them’.
“I am going to do a big jalsa in Muzzafarabad on Friday September 13, to send a message to the world about the continuing siege of Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) by Indian occupation forces, and to show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands resolutely with them,” the premier wrote.

Earlier, in a tweet, the PM had urged the international community not to remain indifferent to the human rights abuses by the Indian forces. “The international community must not remain indifferent to the massive human rights abuses by Occupation Indian forces under cover of a brutal siege,” the prime minister tweeted.
It has been over a month since India stripped of the special status granted to IoK and abrogated Article 370 from its constitution. The Indian government has also imposed a military curfew in the region and has imprisoned thousands of Kashmiris.
