The University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Friday organised a women Kashmir solidarity walk to express solidarity with the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK), suffering from unprecedented atrocities, being perpetrated by Indian armed forces against them
According to a UET spokesperson, the walk began with the national anthems of Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) to show solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris and the participants were holding Pakistani and Kashmiri flags and banners.
On the occasion, Dr Sabahat Alamgir, Dr Rehana and Dr Shumaila addressed the participants in the walk and highlighted the Kashmir issue.
Addressing the participants, they said: "Kashmiris are going through a difficult phase. We are proud of our Kashmiri mothers and sisters, whose sons were sacrificing their lives in the freedom movement.
They further said that the ratio of women in Pakistan is approximately 50 per cent; therefore, we have to play our role on every platform individually and collectively," the woman speakers said adding "Kashmir is our jugular vein and we pay tribute to the determination and courage of Kashmiris." At the end of walk, special prayers were made for the freedom of Kashmir.
Female teachers, staff members, registrar UET Muhammad Asif, DSA Prof Dr Asif Ali Qaiser and a large number of female students participated in the walk.
