The Pakistani Embassy in Kabul has been prevented from commemorating Kashmir Solidarity Day event at the Intercontinental Hotel, the embassy said on Tuesday. Pakistan is observing Kashmir Solidarity Day to express solidarity with Kashmiris and their inherent right to self-determination under the United Nations resolutions.

Pakistan is observing Kashmir Solidarity Day in the country and many of the world’s capitals to reiterate the support of Islamabad to the struggle of Kashmiri people. Like other parts of the world, Pakistan mission in Kabul planned to observe the Kashmir day at the hotel and the venue was decided a week ago.

The hotel management initially indicated “security reasons” for its unwillingness to host the programme, a Pakistani embassy official, who was involved in arrangements for the event.

He said the hotel’s management notified the embassy on Tuesday around 4.30 pm. “But when we sought an explanation, the hotel management confirmed that they have been instructed by high ups in the Afghan government to cancel the reservation of the hall and not to allow the holding of the event, according to an embassy official.

Kashmir Solidarity Day – Pakistan Observes Kashmir Solidarity Day Today

“The Afghan government’s pressure on the hotel management to cancel the Kashmir programme. We had invited Kabul-based ambassadors from the OIC countries, Afghan political leaders, members of the parliament and media persons,” he said. The embassy shifted the programme to the embassy and has informed the invitees, he said.

“This action of the Afghan government is coupled with the blocking of the embassy main gate since January 28 those who have pitched tents before the embassy to protest against the arrest of Manzoor Pashteen,” he said.

Annually, February 5 is observed as a day of solidarity with Kashmiris. This year, however, it comes after India removed the region of its special status and imposed a lockdown. The Indian government had on August 5, 2019, repealed Article 370 of its constitution, stripping Jammu and Kashmir of its special status.

Pakistani President Dr. Arif Alvi and PM Imran Khan in their separate messages on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day have reaffirmed Pakistan’s unflinching support for Kashmiri brothers and sisters who have been subjected to an inhuman lockdown and communications blockade for six months.

He said Pakistan demands the immediate lifting of the military siege and communications blackout as well as rescinding of India’s illegal and unilateral actions. PM Khan said all those illegally arrested and incarcerated should be released and the draconian laws enabling impunity to Indian occupation forces be immediately repealed.
