Protesters braved the pouring rain in the Pakistani city of Karachi on Sunday to condemn India’s decision to strip the region of its autonomous status and demand a military action to end Kashmir’s lockdown.
The ‘Azadi Kashmir March’ which was called on by the Jamaat-e-Islami party, saw protesters assemble on the Shahrah-e-Faisal boulevard carrying banners and flags and chanting.
Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami party and Member of Pakistani Parliament Siraj ul Haq addressed the protesters while calling on the Pakistani government to remove the Line of Control (LoC), the de facto borderline between the Indian and Pakistani-administered Kashmir and revoke the Simla Agreement which had seen the borderline form in 1972.
