ISLAMABAD,(UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 3rd Augst,2016) : All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) on Wednesday organized a rally in Federal Capital to protest against Indian atrocities in Held Kashmir and also upon arrival of Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Indian Home Minister is coming to Islamabad to attend South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) meeting of Interior/Home Minister on Wednesday.

The rally was started from Faizabad area in Rawalpindi. During the rally, the protestors called on world community and particularly the permanent five members of the UN Security Council to take note of aggravating human rights situation and get the UN resolutions on Kashmir implemented. The participants, holding placards and banners inscribed with slogans against Indian atrocities, called on India to respect human rights of the people of Occupied Kashmir.
