Pakistani Senate passes Kashmir solidarity resolution

A resolution for solidarity with the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir was presented to the Senate on Wednesday and it was passed unanimously.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had moved the resolution aimed at expressing Pakistan’s solidarity with the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir who have been living under brutal Indian oppression for decades, especially since August 5, 2019.
On August 5, the Narendra Modi-led BJP government had revoked the special status of the disputed region and enforced a complete lockdown there in a bid to avert the backlash from Kashmiri people who have been demanding the right to self-determination from India since 1948 in line with resolutions of the United Nations.
The resolution passed by the Senate says that India has committed more than 1800 ceasefire violations on the Line of Control this year so far. The resolution has also thanked the human rights organisations and parliaments globally for condemning Indian actions in Kashmir. The resolution calls upon India to undo the illegal actions, which it has taken in the occupied region of Jammu and Kashmir since August 5 or earlier than that.

The resolution has also urged India to end the siege of occupied Kashmir, undo the actions aimed at changing demography of occupied Kashmir and release the political leadership and young people of Kashmir who were arrested during the crackdown, which was launched on August 5, 2019. The resolution has called upon India to withdraw the black laws and give Kashmiris the right to self-determination. The resolution has also urged the international community to pressurise India to stop brutalities against Kashmiri people.
