Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan clearly mentioned Kashmir issue his speech in conjunction with the country’s independence day on Wednesday, to criticize India for its actions especially in the matter of dispute.

India revoked the special status of the Kashmir Himalayan region, known as Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 and cut off communications and prevented free movement.

Islamabad responded by suspending bilateral trade and public relations relations with India, including expelling the New Delhi ambassador to Islamabad.

“Independence day is a great opportunity to celebrate, but today we mourn the fate of our Kashmiri brothers living in disputed land being victims of Indian oppression.

“I assure the Kashmiri brothers that we will be with them,” Imran said in a statement.

The heavenly Valley and the Hindu-dominated region around Jammu are under Indian occupation, while Pakistan controls the western region known as Azad Kashmir and China covers the northern highlands.

The revocation of India’s Jammu&Kashmir special status hinders the state’s right to enact its own laws and allows non-residents to buy property in the region.
