It’s been more than a month since the Indian government revoked Article 370 and imposed a lockdown in Kashmir. Raising his voice against the atrocities, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced earlier this week that he will address a jalsa in Muzaffarabad on Friday (September 13, 2019), in solidarity with the people of Kashmir.

In a Twitter post, Imran Khan wrote that a “big jalsa” was in order to “send a message to the world about the continuing siege of [Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir] IoJK by Indian Occupation forces; [and] to show the Kashmiris that Pakistan stands resolutely with them”. This announcement came a day after Pakistan urged the international community “not to remain indifferent to the unfolding tragedy” at the ongoing session of the United Nation Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva.

While many celebrities including Shaan Shahid and Sahir Ali Bagga among others took to social media to support the jalsa in Kashmir, many artists flew to Muzaffarabad on Prime Minister’s call joining him at the solidarity rally.

Humayun Saeed took to Instagram yesterday and uploaded a picture of himself along with veteran actor Jawed Sheikh, cricketer Shahid Afridi, actresses Maya Ali and Hareem Farooq and others. “On our way to Kashmir on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s call. Will be joining him at his big jalsa today in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Kashmir,” he captioned the picture.
