Islamabad:  Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that the day is not far when the people of Kashmir would get independence.

Pakistan stands by Kashmiris in their just struggle for their right to self-determination, the premier said in a statement issued on the eve of the Kashmir Martyrs’ Day being observed on both sides of the Line of Control today.

He said: “Pakistan will continue its support to the Kashmiri people till the Kashmir’s independence from India.”

The forefathers of the Kashmiris, generation after generation, have been sacrifising their lives for the independance. The people of the valley are still making a struggle against the hindutva ideology.

Imran said that the day is not far when Kashmir would get independence from India.

He said that the aim of the Hindutva supremacy is to change demography in the occupied Kashmir, wiping out Kashmiris from the valley.
