Shabab Muslimeen Students Wing Chairman Riyaz Ahmad Awan led one anti-India rally in the city, which was attended by Chief Organizer Faizullah Durrani, President Universities and Colleges Zubair Shah, Media Advisor Arshad Awan and others.
The speakers said that India had taken away the freedom of the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir by the dint of military power. They said, India has no right to celebrate its independence in the occupied territory as it has the status of a usurper in Jammu and Kashmir.
The speakers appealed to the United Nations that all minorities, including Kashmiris, are insecure in India. Their lives and property are under serious threat. They said that humanity is being suppressed in India every day, but the international community and civilized nations remain a silent spectator.
