QUETTA - Governor Balochistan Amanullah Yasinzai has said that Indian government cannot succeed in silencing the voices of people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) through imposing military siege and brute force.  He expressed these views while addressing the protest gathering held at the lawn of the Balochistan Assembly on Wednesday.

CM Jam Kamal hailed the new map of Pakistan showing IIOJK part of Pakistan saying new map disseminated the message of moving forward to the people of Pakistan for their suppressed Kashmiri brethren. 

The Parliamentarians of different political parties also stressed the need to raise voice against tyranny, barbarism and atrocities committed by the Indian government. “Though, every political party in Balochistan has its own manifesto, ideology and vision, yet when it comes to Kashmir issue, we all are on one page and are fully intact”, they added. 

Expressing their grave concern over the sheer violation of human rights in the IIOJK, they called upon the world leaders to step in and stop human rights violation in the Kashmir.

“One cannot quote a single example of yearlong curfew, communication blockade and armed siege in the history as did by the fascist government of Narendra Modi in the illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir”, they maintained.
