She also said the real face of Indian PM Narendra Modi, who has tried to change the special status of Occupied Kashmir through a nefarious act, should be exposed to the world.
Dr. Firdous urged the world nations to come forward and support the oppressed, who have been denied all the rights and are being subjected to the worst human rights violations.
She thanked China for supporting Pakistan’s stance on the issue, opposing the unilateral change of the status of Occupied Kashmir by the Indian Government.
She said Occupied Kashmir remains under curfew and people have no telephone, Mobile phone service & internet facility.
Meanwhile, Pakistan as a responsible state awaits the resolution of Kashmir dispute under UN resolutions and international laws, she said.
In a series of tweets today, she said China has again supported Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir issue and proved that it always stands with truth and uprightness.
She said China is an emerging world power, and we thank our all-weather friend for backing Pakistan’s stance in support of the oppressed Kashmiris in occupied Kashmir.
