Islamabad: After the failure of its diplomatic channels to internationalise the Kashmir issue, Pakistan’s propaganda machinery is at work again and, this time, it has decided to observe “Kashmir Hour” to express “solidarity with Kashmiris”. As part of the plans, sirens will blare out at 12 noon across the country, the national anthem will be played everywhere and all people and vehicles will come to a standstill. Even school children have been directed to join the protests in support of the people of Kashmir.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Chief Ministers along with parliamentarians will lead the nation for ‘Kashmir Hour’ by coming out in front of their respective secretariats and office buildings, Radio Pakistan announced.

Special prayers for the people of Kashmir would also be offered after the Friday prayers.

PM Imran Khan made an appeal to his countrymen  yesterday to take part in “Kashmir Hour” so as to show maximum support to the Kashmiris, tensions between the two nuclear-powerered neighbours over the Narendra Modi government’s recent move `to repeal special status for Jammu and Kashmir.

Imran Khan twitted “I want all Pakistanis to come out on Friday between 12 noon-12.30 PM to show solidarity with the Kashmiri people and send the Kashmiris in Kashmir a clear message that the entire Pakistani nation stands in solidarity with them,”
