Dr Jamal Nasir said that the difficulties of the people of Occupied Kashmir have been reminded of the difficulties of migration. “During the migration, entire trains were looted, women were raped and families of families would be killed,” he said. He said that my whole family came to Pakistan with everything lying down. Before migration, we had a luxurious life but later we lived a life of economic difficulties. He said that the country established after the sacrifices of millions of people would overcome all challenges and we will strive for the survival and development of the country till the last drop of blood.
Director Waqar Ahmed said that all the works of art to be presented in connection with the Independence Day celebrations contain references to the plight of the Kashmiri people which is a testament to the sincere commitment of the Pakistani people and artists to the Kashmiri people.
