Observing a particularly somber Kashmir Day this time around, people came out in full support of those stuck amidst the Indian lock down following the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

Among the countless people standing in solidarity with Kashmir were a number of Pakistani celebrities as well, who made sure to extend their full support to the Muslim-majority region.

"Rest assured that we Pakistanis have not forgotten you and will stand resolute by your side #StandWithKashmir #KashmirSolidarity," wrote actor Mehwish Hayat, adding how it's been six months since Kashmir has been under lock down.

Hamza Ali Abbasi also penned a heartfelt prayer for Kashmir writing, "May Allah allow me to live to see that day when the fate of Kashmir is determined according to the wishes of our Kashmiri brothers and sisters."

Mahira Khan and her Superstar co-star Bilal Ashraf also chimed in with prayers, hoping for freedom for Kashmir.

Ranjha Ranjha Kardi star Imran Ashraf also tweeted a tribute to the people of Kashmir for their countless sacrifices.

"Peace and freedom are basic human rights," tweeted Saba Qamar, who is currently working on the film Kamli. 

Humayun Saeed took to Twitter to share a video produced by ISPR for the Kashmiris, adding a call for freedom.

Here's hoping that the next Kashmir Solidarity Day sees better circumstances in the region itself.
