Rawalpindi: (PR) A week long photographic exhibition in connection with Kashmir Solidarity Day began at the Rawalpindi Arts Council here on Friday to highlight Indian occupation forces’ brutality in Indian held part of Kashmir. The exhibition depicted atrocities committed by Indian forces on people from Indian-held Kashmir.
Tahira Aurangzeb, Member Assembly, inaugurated the exhibition, which was attended by Naheed Manzoor, Director RAC Waqar Ahmed and a large number of people.
Over 100 pictures showcasing human rights violations after the brutal killing of Burhan Wani were exhibited.
Speaking at the inauguration, Tahira Aurangzeb said Kashmir was the un-finished agenda of the partition, and the world community should play its role in ending human rights violations and forcing India to implement the United Nations resolution that gives Kashmiris the right to self-determination.
Naheed Manzoor said the Kashmir issue has been pending with the UN for over 60 years, while people have suffered terribly due to the protracted, illegal and forcible occupation by India. She said the time has come to end the brutality of Indian forces.
RAC Director Waqar Ahmed said the exhibition is part of an awareness campaign about the brutal actions of Indian forces against innocent Kashmiris who want their right to self-determination.
He said the Council has arranged a number of events to observe Kashmir Solidarity Day, including theatrical performances by schoolchildren to highlight the issue.
