Imran leads 'human chain' event on Kashmir Day

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan led a 'human chain' event here to express solidarity with Kashmiris as 'Kashmir Day' was marked across the country.

The several kilometres-long human chain was formed from D-Chowk to the Convention Centre in Islamabad on Friday, Geo News reported. People from all sections of society took part in the event.

On the occasion, Prime Minister Khan said that Pakistan needed to give the world a message that his country would always stand by Kashmir. Speaking to a crowd of supporters in the capital, Khan said that the international media was highlighting the protests in Hong Kong as a movement for democratic freedom, while ignoring the Kashmir issue.
