Govt, opp united like a rock over Kashmir: Shehbaz


Shehbaz-SharifsLeader of Opposition in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday declared that the government and opposition are ‘united like a rock’ on the Kashmir issue and warned the world against ‘fascist Modi’. “When it comes to Occupied Kashmir, we, the government and Opposition, are united like a rock, and unwavering in our moral, diplomatic and political support to the oppressed Kashmiris. Mr Modi must make no mistake about it!” he posted on his Twitter handle. His remarks come two days after Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly, highlighted the human rights abuses by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir. The region has been under a lockdown and communications blackout imposed by India’s Hindu nationalist government before it stripped the occupied territory of its autonomy on August 5. In another tweet, Sharif said that Pakistan is a “responsible nuclear state” and that the country’s contributions to maintain world people were “well documented”.
