Grandsons of former South African President and anti-apartheid revolutionary, Nelson Mandela, have expressed solidarity with the people of Indian-occupied Kashmir (IOK) on Youm-e-Istehsal-e-Kashmir.
Paying tribute to the people of the occupied valley, Mandla Mandela acknowledged that the struggle of the people of IOK for freedom is completely indigenous and South Africans stand alongside them in their struggle.
He called on the international community to hold India accountable for its crimes against humanity in the IOK, adding that South Africans will always stand with the people of Kashmir in their struggle for freedom and self-determination.
Prince Dlamini reiterated that Kashmir is an international dispute and urged India to step forward and solve the Kashmir dispute with Pakistan in line with the resolutions of the United Nations.
Grandsons of Nelson Mandela also praised the efforts of Prime Minister Imran Khan and his government for raising the Kashmir issue and highlighting the plight of the people of IOK in the UN Security Council (UNSC) and EU Parliament.
Kashmir Exploitation Day is held on 5th August each year since 2019 after the BJP-led Indian government revoked Articles 370 and 35-A of the Indian constitution which granted autonomy to the occupied state of Jammu and Kashmir.
