It should be mentioned here that February 5 is officially observed every year in the country ever since 1990, as the then government decided to internationalize the Kashmir issue to draw attention of greater part of the world towards its importance and the need to resolve it.

On this day, Kashmiris living across the globe are looking forward to the United Nations for the right of plebiscite. Pakistani people are standing by the people of Kashmir with political, diplomatic and moral support.
It may not be out of place to mention that the Kashmiri people have been suffering the worst genocide at the hands of Indian Army ever since it invaded Kashmir in 1948 with the connivance of Dogra Raj.
Pakistan's nation has through thick and thin stood shoulder to shoulder with Kashmiri brethren ,irrespective of any political considerations as there are bonds of religious brotherhood that tie the two people together and in the words of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah ,Kashmir is Pakistan's jugular vein.
The beautiful land of Kashmir has been peacefully struggling till 1989 when the Kashmiri leadership decided to fight back the aggressive designs of Invaders and has offered hundreds of martyrs on this glorified path ,while many more are dis-appeared ;often traced back to state dungeons in the occupied Kashmir and India .
It may not be out of place to mention that the beautiful valley of Jammu and Kashmir and it's adjoining areas house a significant majority of Shia muslims as well as Holy Sites housing tabarukat belonging to the family of Rasool-e-Khuda[SAWW].
The ideological father of Islamic Revolution and the Supreme Islamic jurisprudential authority of his times Rahber-e-Kabeer Imam Khomeini's ancesters also belonged to Kashmir,where from,they migrated to Khomein .
