LAHORE: The Punjab government will observe Youm-e-Istehsal-e-Kashmir on August 5 by taking out rallies throughout the province. On the direction of Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar, a rally will be brought out from the CM Office to the Governor's House which will be led by CM Usman Buzdar, parliamentarians and party leaders.
Similar rallies and functions will also be held at divisional level and observance of Corona SOPs will also be ensured. The participants will record their peaceful agitation against the Indian brutality and aggression while wearing black ribbons, said a CM's spokesperson on Friday.
In this connection, the CM said that oppressed Kashmiris are forced to live under Indian oppression as 12 months have passed since the illegal lockdown in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. "The Indian illegal occupation of the Occupied Kashmir has turned into the century's biggest humanitarian crisis and tragedy, which also describes the impassiveness of the international community," he added.
"While the world is in slumber on Indian cruelties against the Kashmiris, Pakistan will not remain silent. It will continue to firmly stand with the Kashmiris and India will be held accountable for cruelty. The PTI government will fight the case of the Indian Occupied Kashmir at every forum," he added.
