He said Pakistan would never leave the Kashmiris alone. On August 5, not only Pakistan but whole world is observing a black day against Indian illegal annexation of Kashmir. He said Pakistan nation is observing ‘Youm-e-Istehsal-e-Kashmir’ on the call of our Captain Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He said protests and rallies would be staged in whole country at district and Tehsil level. He said we welcome all political parties to come on the same page for the cause of Kashmir.

Haleem said on August 5 a train march would be launched from Karachi to Sukkur that would begin on 9:00 am and youths in whole Sindh would welcome this train march to show anger against India and Modi. He said Prime Minster Imran Khan raised the Kashmir issue strongly in the United Nations. He said every citizen of Pakistan support the brave Pak army and they would expel Modi from the occupied Kashmir.
