In an effort to highlight the wave of terror unleashed by India in occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Pakistan Post has issued a special commemorative Postage Stamp in connection with Youm-e-Istehsal to be observed on Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference along with Minister for Communication Murad Saeed, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz said the stampage is aimed at sensitizing the world about the atrocities being committed in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Given the worldwide spread of the stampage, the minister said this symbolic step will send a very strong message to the international community. He said that all forums including diplomatic and political ones are being used to expose the evil face of India to the world.
Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi along with Defense Minister Pervez Khattak left for a visit to Chiri Kot Sector of Line of Control. In a video message before his visit to the LoC, Qureshi said that entire Pakistani nation including the armed forces fully stand by Kashmiri people in their struggle for right to self-determination. He said that Kashmiri people had rejected the Indian illegal steps of 5th August and nobody will accept them.
