Crossing LoC from AJK to provide humanitarian aid will benefit Indian narrative: PM

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said anyone crossing line of control from Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) to provide humanitarian aid or support for Kashmiris struggle will play into the hands of the Indian narrative.


The prime minister in his message on Twitter said, "I understand the anguish of the Kashmiris in AJK seeing their fellow Kashmiris in IOJK (Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir) under an inhumane curfew for over 2 months."

PM Imran added that the Indian narrative aimed to divert international attention away from the legitimate political struggle of the Kashmiri people for self-determination, and instead labelled it as militancy emanating from Pakistan.

In his address to 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on September 27, Prime Minister Imran Khan had urged the UN and other international fora to take serious action against the illegal and unilateral steps taken by India in occupied Kashmir to avoid any human tragedy.

On August 5, India revoked occupied Kashmir’s autonomy, dividing the disputed territory into two regions to be controlled by New Delhi. A draconian lockdown was imposed in the region and all communications were cut. The clampdown has entered its third month with reports of mass detentions and human rights abuses.
