UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday called on his people to stand in solidarity Friday with Kashmiris in the Indian-controlled part of the disputed region.
Khan said in a series of tweets on “Twitter”, on Thursday, that the plan to change the demographics of Jammu and Kashmir, is a war crime.
He added: “I want all Pakistanis to go out tomorrow (Friday) between 12:00 and 12:30 pm, to show solidarity with the Kashmiri people in Jammu and Kashmir, and to send a clear message to them that the whole Pakistani nation solidarity with them against the fascist Indian repression and its inhuman ban.” To roam 24 days. ”
“The killing and wounding of Kashmiri civilians, including women and children, on a daily basis is part of the ethnic cleansing agenda of the (Indian Prime Minister Narendra) Modi’s government and its illegal annexation of Jammu and Kashmir,” Khan said in another tweet.
He continued: “The plan to bring about a demographic change of Jammu and Kashmir, a war crime under the Fourth Geneva Convention.”
“We should send a strong message to the Kashmiris that our nation is firmly behind them. So I ask all Pakistanis tomorrow for half an hour to stop all their actions and take to the streets to show solidarity with the Kashmiris,” he said.
On August 5, the Indian government abolished the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution, which grants self-rule to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, under its control from the region.
The article also gives Kashmiris alone in the state the right to permanent residence, as well as the right to employment in government departments, own property, and receive educational grants.
Observers believe that the Indian steps would allow Indians from other states to own property in the state, and thus change the demographics of the region, to make it not a Muslim majority.
