PoK locals reject Islamabad's call for Kashmir Solidarity Day,protest against Pakistan

Residents of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir recently rejected Islamabad's call for ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ on February 5.

They also protested against Pakistan for denying them rights.

The Kashmir Solidarity Day is observed in Pakistan as a means to mislead and show their solidarity to people of Kashmir.

Exposing Pakistan’s deception on Kashmir, the residents in PoK are suggesting Islamabad look at its shortcomings instead of doing propaganda on the issue, reported ANI.

Toqeer Gilani, a political activist in PoK, while expressing his anger, was quoted as saying by the Indian news agency: "On one hand, Pakistan announces to express solidarity with Kashmir on February 5, on the other hand, the same dispensation denies the basic rights to the people under its control. We can see that the propaganda of Kashmir is being used rapidly this year in Pakistan to distract attention from the movement that is going on here."

Shaukat Nawaz Mir, leader of the Jammu and Kashmir Joint Awami Action Committee, said in his address as quoted by ANI, “We have had a dispute with Pakistan for years now that these dams are our property and we should have control over these resources. We have been fighting for our rights for the past 76 years. The politicians in PoK have failed to provide us with these rights, which have forced us to sit on the roads.”
