Pakistani PM Imran Khan has announced that he is going to hold a grand rally in Muzaffarabad this Friday.
The PM Imran Khan tweeted the jalsa will “send a message to the world about the continuing siege of Indian occupied Kashmir. He also said that the jalsa will show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands resolutely with them.”
I am going to do a big jalsa in Muzzafarabad on Friday 13 Sept, to send a message to the world about the continuing siege of IOJK by Indian Occupation forces; & to show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands resolutely with them.

Usually Friday the 13th is considered unlucky but a grand jalsa on that day will prove to be nightmarish for India. It has been over a month that India unilaterally decided to annex the region, enforcing a lockdown in Kashmir. Prime Minister Imran Khan is the only world leader who has repeatedly raised concern regarding the disputed region.
On August 30th, the whole country and Azad Kashmir celebrated Kashmir hour to show solidarity with the Kashmiri people. From Karachi to Muzaffarabad, people came out in huge numbers to observe ‘Kashmir Hour’ and register their protest. It was a huge success for Imran Khan and showed the world that Pakistan is serious on the Kashmir issue.
The PM’s announcement of Muzaffarabad rally comes a day after Pakistan hit India for the second time at international level. Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi claims over 50 countries supported Pakistan’s stance on Indian Occupied Kashmir.
A Joint Statement delivered at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva by Pakistan slams the recent actions of Modi government. The statement added that the curfew must be lifted to stop extrajudicial killings, arbitrary arrests, and molestation of women.
Pakistan also expressed its gratitude to the countries which became part of this Joint Statement in support of the people of Kashmir. It appreciated their joint call for a peaceful resolution of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute through the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions.
