"Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi should stage a sit-in along with at least five members of his Cabinet outside the office of the United Nations on February 5 to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people", he said. "You can close your eyes, pretend nothing happened but they (Pakistan) have to realise what's in front of them and take action against such people", said Raveesh Kumar, the ministry's spokesman.
Pakistan's prime minister has pledged his government's continued support for the struggle of the people of Kashmir, saying the residents of the divided Himalayan region have rendered great sacrifices in their fight for freedom, which can not be suppressed.
Mr Abbasi underscored the need to involve the Pakistani and Kashmir diaspora to further highlight the Kashmir issue and the "gross human rights violations" allegedly committed by the Indian forces. He added that Pakistan is a voice of the oppressed Kashmiris and will continue to stand with the Kashmiri brethren through every thick and thin.
