Chief of Pakistan Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Bajwa saluted the people of Jammu and Kashmir for standing firm before the Indian ‘aggression’ to demand their right to self determination
The Army chief was speaking at the defence day function of Pakistan on 8th September.
“I salute the people of India-Occupied Kashmir who have stood firm and are fighting bravely,” he was quoted as saying by Defence.pk.
“In the fight for freedom we are with Kashmir. We salute the sacrifice of the brothers and sisters of Kashmir. We will avenge blood on the outskirts,” he added.
Bajwa also paid homage to the “heroes” of 1965 war with India and the country’s “martyrs” in its ongoing war on terror.
Addressing a ceremony held at General Headquarters on Defence and Martyrs Day, he said that the country’s valiant soldiers taught India a befitting lesson in 1965 and crushed all their dreams.
Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan was the chief guest on the occasion.
