Adviser Sartaj Aziz felicitates Kashmiris on Eid, expresses concern over detention of Kashmiri leaders

Muslims are celebrating Eid ul Fitr across the globe, the most festive of Islamic traditions. The 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.

We are deeply concerned over detention of Kashmiri leaders on this sacred day, 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 IOK.”
