A giant Kashmiri flag, stretching three miles through the streets of Islamabad, was unfurled by thousands of Pakistani demonstrators.
The solidarity protest occurred in Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad. The protest was taken place to draw attention to Kashmir, as disputed Himalayan region that is divided between Pakistan and India but is claimed by both in its entirety.
The demonstration drew around thousands of people who chanted slogans in support of Kashmiri’s facing an ongoing lockdown by India, who stripped the region of its semi-autonomy during early August.
The Pakistani religious party known as Jamaat-e-Islami also organised a pro-Kashmir rally located in the garrison city of Abbottabad, which was attended by thousands.
Pakistan and India have fought two wars over Kashmir since gaining independence from British colonial rule in 1947.
