Art exhibition to show unity with Kashmiris held
Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) and Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication (MoITT) in collaboration with Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA) organized an art exhibition ‘Giving a voice to the voiceless’ to show unity with the people of Occupied Kashmir here on Friday.
Federal Minister of IT & Telecom Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, who was the chief guest at the occasion, inaugurated the event. The event was also attended by Federal Secretary IT & Telecom Shoaib Ahmad Siddiqui, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) PTCL Rashid Khan and other senior officials from the PTCL and telecom industry. The participants visited the art gallery.
Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said that the Kashmir issue is close to the solution for the first time. This movement is their national duty, said the minister, adding if they fail in standing with the Kashmiri people, history would not forgive Pakistanis. The incumbent government of Pakistan would take the Kashmir issue to its logical conclusion, he added.
“We have gathered together with the PTCL to create awareness on the issue of Occupied Kashmir. Pakistanis across the globe are standing with our Kashmiri brethren who are going through turmoil and tough times.
We appeal to both the national and international communities to come forward and take notice of sufferings of the Kashmiri people. This exhibition is a way to connect the plight of Kashmiris through art so that the people can feel their anguish,” he added.
Speaking at the event, Rashid Khan said, “The PTCL, being a national company, ensures its support for the Kashmiri people. Through today’s art exhibition, we hope to create more awareness on the issue and also showcase the human rights violation in Kashmir. Moreover, this exhibition reiterates our support to help them in their struggle for right of freedom.”
