“These brave people protected Pakistan and our country is free because of these martyrs. Today the enemy cannot cast an evil eye on Pakistan,” Shehbaz Sharif said.

He said India has occupied Kashmir by use of brutal force but he believed that if they stayed united and stood side by side with Kashmiris then Kashmir will be liberated by the will of Allah Almighty. 

He maintained that in order to materialize the dream of the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Pakistan needs to culminate unemployment in the country.
