ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz Thursday expressed deep concern over the detention of Kashmiri leaders on the occasion of Eid in violation of their fundamental right of religious freedom.
“We call upon the international community to take note and urge the Indian government to respect the basic rights of Kashmiris in Indian occupied Kashmir,” Sartaj Aziz said in a statement issued by the Foreign Office.
He said celebration of Eid this year is specially significant because it is being observed all over the globe on the same day from Pakistan to the Middle East and Europe to the Americas and by Kashmiris in Azad Kashmir as well as Indian Occupied Kashmir.
“On this auspicious occasion I extend to the Muslim Community all over the world including our Kashmiri brothers and sisters and their leadership my heartiest felicitations,” Sartaj Aziz said.
