Muzaffarabad (HRNW) The world had forgotten Kashmir before August 5, Prime Minister Imran Khan told a crowd in Azad Kashmir’s Mirpur on Thursday afternoon. “But today, the Kashmir issue has been internationalised.”

There are eight million people under curfew in Indian-held Kashmir, he said, adding that they had been going through a very difficult time since August 5, when the Indian government revoked Article 370 and locked down the area.

He said the reason for this gathering was to send a message to the people in occupied Kashmir that everyone was standing with them.

God says that after hard times, there are times of peace, said PM Khan, adding that he sees good times ahead for the people of Kashmir.

India didn’t want the Kashmir issue to be internationalised, he said, adding that it always claimed Kashmir was a bilateral issue. Even Pakistan’s Muslim allies didn’t talk about it, he said.

He martyred our trees and it always pains me when someone cuts down our trees, he said. Whoever takes votes based on hatred, they may win the election but they spread hatred, said PM Khan.

He said the Kashmir issue has been internationalised because of Modi’s actions. It was brought up three times during UNSC meetings in the last six months, he said.
