Kashmir has virtually turned into large prison: Firdous Awan
PM’s Special Assistant on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that She said Kashmir has virtually turned into a large prison and people are facing shortages of food, medicine and other necessities of life due to complete clampdown of the holding area by Indian authorities.
Talking to media in Sialkot, she said that confinement of Kashmiris to their homes in Occupied Kashmir even on the day of Eid speaks volumes of the inhuman treatment meted out by Indian government to people of Kashmir.
Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the atrocities of Modi government on Kashmiris are reminiscent of the scenes of Karbala.
Firdous Awan said that India has forgotten that spirits of freedom cannot be curbed with guns.
She said government and people of Pakistan fully stand by their Kashmiri brethren in their just struggle for freedom.
The Special Assistant said that the government has dedicated the Eid to sacrifices of Kashmiri people.
She said the hearts of Kashmiris and Pakistanis beat in unison and the afflictions of Kashmiris affect everyone in Pakistan.
She paid rich tributes to the sacrifices and strong determination of Kashmiris who are willing to risk their lives in order to realize the dream of their right to self-determination.
Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said the Indian step of scrapping the independent status of Kashmir has been condemned by the countries in region and beyond, adding that Kashmir is an inseparable part of Pakistan and it is our jugular vein.
