Islamabad: Pakistan’s repeated attempt to internationalise the Kashmir issue, it’s so-called “solidarity hour” gave a massive blow to Islamabad.
The much-hyped ‘Kashmir Solidarity Hour’ failed to garner much attention among the Pakistanis. Pakistani authorities made desperate attempts to direct school children to join the protests in support of the people of Kashmir, but that too failed to gather any steam. Authorities restricted traffic and blocked roads in view of the protests.
Pakistan observed the ‘Kashmir Solidarity Hour’ from 12 pm to 12:30 pm today after Prime Minister Imran Khan had said he will become the “ambassador” for all Kashmiris in the wake of abrogation of Article 370.
All such moves greatly hampered the daily lives of hundreds of Pakistanis.
The failure of the protests has left Pakistan red-faced even as it continues its pursuit of raking up the Kashmir issue in international forums.
