Vienna witnesses pro Kashmir protest

Austria-based Pakistani community including Kashmiri diaspora held a protest rally in Vienna.

They expressed solidarity with oppressed Kashmiris of IOJK.

Interestingly, they don’t restrict Kashmir Solidarity Day to February 05 only.

The participants assembled near the Austrian parliament and marched towards Indian Embassy.

They chanted slogans against Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

Notables from the community made speeches on the occasion highlighting Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir and expressing solidarity with the oppressed people.

A big rally was also taken out in Athens right in front of the Indian embassy. The participants carried banners condemning Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

India continues detention of IOJK leaders

Meanwhile, India has taken the latest detention order under the draconian Public Safety Act.

Under that India also extended the detention of former puppet chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti.
That law allows detention without charges for up to two years.
However, India held them earlier under a law that allowed a maximum of six months, and their detention was about to expire.
Both the leaders, are already under detention since 5th August 2019, the day when India revoked the special status of occupied Kashmir.
National Conference, General Secretary, Ali Mohammed Sagar, was also served a PSA notice by the authorities.

 

This extended detention of Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah angered Kashmiris and many Indians alike.

Indian National Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi has also demanded their release.

According to Radio Pakistan, India has extended the detention of four political leaders in occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan warns India

Meanwhile, Prime Minister has warned India that its misadventure will end up in its own defeat.

Imran Khan also said that a good time is coming for Kashmiris that will lead to their ultimate freedom from Indian occupation.

He expressed these views, while addressing Kashmir Solidarity rally in Mirpur on Thursday.
