Every year, February 5 is regarded as a national holiday in Pakistan to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people in their struggle for the right to self-determination.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the occasion will also be used to condemn India for its “egregious human rights violations” in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ).

“One-minute silence will be observed throughout the county and special prayers will be offered for the Kashmiri Shuhda, who have laid down their lives, struggling against the illegal and inhuman Indian occupation,” said the Foreign Office.

In a statement released on Thursday, the Foreign Office announced solidarity walks on Kashmir Day, in Islamabad, all provincial capitals, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir, to express unity with the “Kashmiri brothers and sisters.”

Pakistan’s representatives around the world will also organize seminars and engage with the media, think tanks, parliamentarians, and policy influentials to highlight the “egregious” human rights violations in IIOJK.

“The unabated cold-blooded murders and brutalization of innocent Kashmiris are a clear manifestation of state terrorism to which unarmed Kashmiris have been subjected to for over seven decades,” stated the Foreign Office.

Prominent members of Kashmi’s leadership continues to remain incarcerated in Indian prisons under “inhuman conditions” on false and fabricated charges.

Meanwhile, the BJP-RSS regime continues its “despicable” efforts to change the demographic structure of IIOJK in clear violation of the UNSC resolutions and international law, including the 4th Geneva Convention, added the statement.

“The international community must take immediate cognizance of this dire situation and take practical steps to stop India from such illegal and inhuman actions,” concluded the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
