Rawalpindi [Pakistan], Dec.6 (ANI): Activists and political leaders of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) held a protest rally in Rawalpindi and chanted slogans against Pakistan Army for allegedly supporting extremists and terrorists in their territory. They chanted "Yeh jo dehshat gardi hai, isle piche vardi hai" (The people in uniform are behind these terrorist activities). The protesters accused Islamabad of providing shelter to terrorists in PoK who are misleading the youth towards `Jihad'. The event was organised by the National Action Front, a coalition of several nationalist parties from PoK, including the United Kashmir People's National Party. The protesters raised their voices against the use of religion as a tool to mislead the youth of Kashmir. The protesters demanded the withdrawal of National Action Plan as it's been used against nationalist and political leaders in PoK and Gilgit Baltistan by the Pakistan Army. Many youth are being arrested and they are suffering atrocities at the hands of the security agencies. Pakistan has been using the PoK for its proxy war against India and has given shelter to banned terrorist organisations. On September 29, India conducted surgical strikes on seven terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in PoK and killed at least 38 terrorists. (ANI)
