kashmir hour pm house

The situation is Kashmir keeps worsening, and the curfews and media blackouts make it all the more difficult to help the distressed community.

#KashmirHour is currently one of the top global trends on Twitter, owing to PM Imran urging the nation to step out in solidarity with Kashmiris and to stand up against the torture they are being subjected to for decades.

Today, the first ever official #KashmirHour was observed, where groups upon groups of people from all walks of life came out.

Many celebrities like Shahid Afridi, Faysal Qureshi, Adnan Siddiqui, Aijaz Aslam, Bilal Ashraf also decided to join the movement and make a difference.

School going children and senior citizens were also present there.

However, while the motive of all those who stepped out and gathered to express solidarity to Kashmir, it is difficult to ignore that the protest might have caused more harm than good.

Children’s school vans had trouble getting children home on time due to traffic jams, emergency patients in ambulances suffered because of the roads that were blocked, employees had difficulty reaching their workplaces in time.

Moreover, instead of protesting to make Kashmir part of Pakistan with slogans like “Kashmir Banega Pakistan”, we should be protesting for Kashmir to be free to make their own decision.

One more thing that really caught our attention was the below tweet from PTI’s official account:

Somehow, amidst the chaos of nationwide protests, PTI’s official Twitter account got the chance to take a jab at Baby Bhutto.

Anyway, let’s see if the protests actually make a difference in freeing Occupied Kashmir or not.
