Youm-e-Istehsal 2023: Armed Forces vows to continue support of Kashmiris


The Armed Forces of Pakistan have expressed solidarity with the brave and resilient people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on the occasion of Youm-e-Istehsal 2023 in their just struggle for right to self-determination according to the UN Resolutions.

According to an ISPR statement released on the occasion of Youm-e-Istehsal 2023, the continuation of inhumane military lockdown, illegal measures to change the demographic structure of the occupied territory, and gross and systematic violations of human rights are all clear violations of international law.

The Inter-Services Public Relations said such measures, combined with the Indian government’s belligerent language and hostile actions, continue to create humanitarian and security problems in IIOJ&K and represent a constant danger to regional stability. ISPR stressed for resolution of the Kashmir dispute according to UN Resolutions and the aspirations of the Kashmiri people and said that it is imperative for enduring peace and stability in the region.

The ISPR confirmed Pakistan’s full support for providing political, moral, and humanitarian support to Kashmiris in their just battle against tyranny and illegal subjugation, paying rich tribute to the martyrs of IIOJK for their great sacrifices.

Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif also expressed solidarity with Kashmiri brothers and sisters and said that Pakistan will continue to lend its unstinted moral, political, and diplomatic support to the rightful and just cause of the freedom struggle of the Kashmiri people. He said today marks the completion of four years since India deprived Kashmiris of their statehood by unilaterally annexing Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK). He urged India to reverse its conduct of August 5. History demonstrates that brutal force has never succeeded in extinguishing the flame of liberty and rights.

Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has urged the international community to demand an end to India’s gross and widespread human rights violations in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
