The Pakistanis, by appeal of Prime Minister Imran Khan, left mass on Friday to observe the "Kashmir Time" of 12 p.m. at 12:30 p.m. to express solidarity with cashmere in occupied Kashmir.
Educational institutions, government and private offices, banks, merchants, lawyers and military authorities participated in the events. All traffic signs turned red at noon.
Small and large demonstrations were also carried out throughout the country by citizens, lawyers and people from other areas of life. Several leaders participated in Kashmir Time events, including Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, Balochistan's chief minister, Jam Kamal Khan Alyani, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's chief minister, Mahmood Khan, and the chief minister of Punjab, Usman Buzdar.
In the federal capital, the main event was held outside the Office of the Prime Minister (PMO), where the prime minister addressed a large meeting. Together with the Prime Minister, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister of Information, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, and the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister, Naeemul Haque, were also present.
The national anthems of Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir were played at the beginning of the event.
"Today, throughout Pakistan, wherever there are Pakistanis, whether they are our students, merchants or workers, today we are all with our cashmere," said the prime minister.
"Our cashmere are going through a very difficult time."
The prime minister said that the ideology of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had taken over India, "the way the Nazi party had taken over Germany."
"They believe that Muslims should be taught a lesson, that they are not equal citizens. Today, everyone is seeing what is happening in Kashmir."
Prime Minister Imran said he has transmitted to all foreign leaders that if the international community does not face the "fascist government" of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the effect would be felt throughout the world.
The prime minister reiterated that if India planned to take any action in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, "each brick will be countered with a stone."
"Forget about the media; they didn't even leave [Indian] opposition leaders go to Srinagar. "
He drew attention to the fact that the Kashmirs in IoK were under curfew for almost four weeks. "The message from Pakistan that will be sent today is that until our cashmere do not gain independence, the people of Pakistan will be with them."
Another event was held at the Aiwan-e-Sadr where President Arif Alvi addressed the crowd.
"I pray to God that in your life and in yours, we will see an independent Kashmir in which their rights are not repressed, their women are not violated and their people are not martyred."
Demonstrations and demonstrations were also organized by people throughout Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
In the state capital, Muzaffarabad, a large concentration was held from the Prime Minister's secretariat to a monument near Sardar Ibrahim Khan, a former president of AJK.
Muhammad Shehzad Arbab, adviser to Prime Minister Khan on the establishment, AJK ministers, lawyer Syed Iftikhar Ali Gillani, Sardar Farooq Sikandar, Chaudhry Rukhsar Ahmed and Chaudhry Ismail were also among the participants, including government officials and activists from civil society
Participants held AJK and Pakistani flags, as well as banners and banners with slogans, calling attention to the atrocities in occupied Kashmir and the popular demand for cashmere.
Before the demonstration, sirens sounded and a minute of silence was observed to pay tribute to the brave cashmere, defying Indian repression without any sign of diminishing resolution.
Later in the day, Prime Minister Imran turned to Twitter to express pride in the way the nation had supported the people of Kashmir.
"I am very proud of our people for the way they came out today in solidarity with the cashmere, letting them know that our nation is decidedly at their side as they confront the brutal and fascist agenda of annexation and ethnic cleansing of the Modi government in Jammu occupied by the Indians and Kashmir, "he tweeted.
"The Pakistani nation has also informed the world about the Nazi-style takeover of India by the Hindu supremacist ideology of the RSS-BJP and the danger it represents not only for the region but for the world," he added.
The chief of the Army General Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, also praised the solidarity expressed by the nation with the people of Kashmir, according to a tweet from the general director of Public Relations between Services.
"The solidarity shown by the nation with the Kashmir brothers during Kashmir Time today is a strong message for the world," he said, as quoted. He added that the deterioration of the situation in occupied Kashmir is a threat to regional peace.
