EFSAS comments on Pakistan’s phony ‘solidarity’ with Jammu & Kashmir


Some discerning Pakistani and Kashmiri journalists have argued that despite all the resolutions, conferences and demonstrations organized by the Pakistani State on 5 February, ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ has over the years been just another day latticed on the Pakistani propaganda model still stuck in the 1990s. There is no audience for it, whether in Kashmir or abroad, and it has had no impact on the ground reality. Why, then, has Pakistan persisted with a tradition that quite evidently has little real meaning today, and exactly how has Pakistani ‘solidarity’ impacted the average resident of J&K, are questions that merit some attention.
