Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan Speech at participation in the formation of a ”Human Chain” in connection with Kashmir Day to express solidarity with the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir in Islamabad (11.10.19)
Today we all have gathered here, to give the message to our Kashmiri brethren that Pakistani Nation stands with them and will always stand with them until their freedom
Second thing, we will give this message to the world over and over again that 8 million humans have been captive by Indian Army for more than 2 months
International media is covering Hong Kong movements on front pages with huge headlines as a Democratic movement. They project it over and over again
As far as I know, a few people have lost their lives due to some accident whereas here in Kashmir, Indian forces have captivated more than 8 Million people within their homes. Women, Children, senior citizens and sick, all are restricted which has near to no coverage on International Media.
In the past 30 years, more than one lac Kashmiris embraced Martyrdom. Why such a huge life loss? Because they are demanding their right to freedom. They are asking for their right to determine which was given by the United Nations. Upon not getting this right, they protest and suffer at the hands of the Indian Army.
And the tales of the atrocities being inflicted on them is hardly getting any international attention.
Today, I would like to highlight the double standards of International Media where they are giving full coverage to a domestic protest of Hong Kong which is part of China in comparison to Kashmir which is a disputed territory as per United Nations. The kind of cruelty Kashmiris is suffering, with great pain I have to say that the world only sees that there is a country with more than 1 Billion population where they can make money. Sadly, materialism is more important than humanity. The disparity and double standard of International media is saddening
I want to give a message to my nation “Remember one thing, Allah has given only effort in the hands of human beings, success is at Allah’s disposal. Whenever you pray, you always ask for the thing, O Allah put me on that path where you have blessed people. You only ask for that path, you make an effort on that path. We never ask for the destination, we ask for the path only. This is that Path, we are trying and InshAllah we will strive as a nation for Kashmir. Our elderly, kids, women, each and every Pakistani will strive for Kashmir and show them we all stand with them
This is our movement for Kashmir & their human rights and InshAllah you’ll see that this will become an ocean.
When I first went to the United States and talked to the leaders over there, no one knew or understood what’s happening in Kashmir. I personally talked & briefed to the leaders, Presidents & Prime Ministers from all over the world. I have appeared in Media to highlight the Kashmir issue. Slowly, the issue is being recognized. Never in History Congressmen and Senators of US gave statements on Kashmir the way they are doing now. Never in the history European Union released a statement and never in the past 50 years Kashmir issue was talked on in UN Security Council the way it has been done now. Everyone must remember that this is a movement, a struggle. I have faith in Allah. Narendra Modi has committed a grave stupidity. He has played his last card. He thought that because India has unlawfully changed its constitution, the people of Kashmir will easily give in as if they are sheep. The point where people of Kashmir has reached after suffering for 30 years. The thing that ends any struggle is the fear of death.
Kashmir’s don’t fear death anymore, the moment this curfew will be lifted, millions of Kashmiris will come out. The path I see today is the path to Kashmir’s freedom. Thank you!
