SRINAGAR – Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has in a letter thanked Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and the people of Pakistan for their support for the Kashmir cause.
In his letter, the All Pakistan Hurriyat Conference Chairman also “appreciated the way Imran Khan spoke at the United Nations General Assembly in September in favour of the Kashmiri people and against the Indian decision to illegally change the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir”, Pakistani media reported.
He pointed out that “India’s attempt to force this illegal decision on the people has seen a widespread curfew in the region”.
India on August 5 abrogated special status for Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two union territories.
