President Arif Alvi and Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani also wore a #IamKashmir armband to express solidarity with Kashmiris.
The premier in a tweet said that Indian premier Narendra Modi was ‘riding a tiger’, thus finding no way to get off, as he continued the siege of Kashmiris with 900 thousand troops.
Quoting a proverb ‘He who rides a tiger, is afraid to dismount’, the prime minister, said Modi was fearful of a bloodbath after lifting of the curfew.
“As the world watches the worst violation of human rights in IOJK, Modi is now fearful, because he knows the moment the siege is lifted, there will be a bloodbath – which would be the only way to subdue the Kashmiri people,” said the prime minister.
“You don’t need 900k troops to fight terrorism; you need them to terrorize eight million Kashmiri people,” he said.
