Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir
On Friday, Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, criticised India for its ongoing “use of unbridled force” in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), which has been occupied illegally for three years.
The prime minister wrote in a series of tweets: “Today marks the third anniversary of India’s illegal and unilateral actions of August 5, 2019, intended to change the internationally recognized disputed status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir and alter the demographic structure of the occupied territory.”
Courageous Kashmiris Not Giving Up
He praised the courageous Kashmiris for not giving up in the face of intimidation, torture, and other severe human rights abuses. PM Shehbaz said, “Indian tyranny has failed to weaken their will.
“The Jammu and Kashmir conflict has been a struggle of hope against insurmountable obstacles, bravery against fear, and sacrifice against oppression. The prime minister continued, “Today, we pay heartfelt respect to all IIOJK martyrs for their supreme sacrifice, as well as to their families for their tenacity and bravery.”

Best Way to Guarantee Long-Term Peace And Stability
President Dr. Arif Alvi claimed that the best way to guarantee long-term peace and stability in the area was to resolve the Kashmir dispute in a statement released by the President’s House.
The final disposition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir must be determined in accordance with the will of the people through a free and impartial plebiscite held under the auspices of the United Nations, he said. “India’s actions of August 5, 2019 contravene several United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions,” he said.
Pakistan will Stand Shoulder to Shoulder With Kashmir
Pakistan will “continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our Kashmiri brothers and sisters in their righteous struggle,” the president further pledged.
Separately, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the foreign minister, emphasised that the events in IIOJK over the past three years had shown that “India has been continuously pursuing its malicious aim of deepening demographic changes” in occupied Kashmir.
