Thousands of people in Pakistan on Sunday continued their march towards the Line of Control (LOC) in the disputed Kashmir region between Pakistan and India to show support to the people of the Indian side of the region.

The rally, organized by the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), began in the Pakistani city of Bhimber on October 4 and will end near the Line of Control on Saturday, a number of participants chanted slogans in support of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan urged him to take steps towards resolving the crisis.

A number of police contingents were deployed on the roads to prevent the demonstrators from reaching the ceasefire line. Khan warned the demonstrators on Saturday from crossing the Line of Control, saying that India would use this to promote its accusation of Pakistani authorities to support armed separatists in Indian occupied region and increase violence against the population of the Jammu.

It is noteworthy, that the territory has been disputed since the independence of Pakistan and India from Britain in 1947, where the two countries are fighting for control of the region split in two parts, Indian held Jammu and Kashmir, and another as Azad Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan.
