KARACHI: Sindh Minister for Information and Archives Saeed Ghani announced on Tuesday that the Pakistan Peoples Party’s Karachi division will organise a public rally today to show solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmiri.

Ghani said that the rally, being held to protest the recent hostilities of India in Kashmir, would be taken out from Mazar-i-Quaid near People’s Secretariat and end at Empress Market.

The minister said that Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah would lead the rally. He said that all political and religious parties, besides people from every walk of life, have been invited to participate in the Kashmir Solidarity Rally.

Ghani said that the whole nation was commemorating this Independence Day as a day of solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir. He added said that the rally would show that all of us, despite our differences, were unanimous on the issue of occupied Kashmir.

He said that national unity was the need of the hour in the wake of the recent move by New Delhi to revoke the special Constitutional status of Indian-held Kashmir through repealing Article 370.
