Kashmir Solidarity Day has been observed on 5 February each year since 1990 as a day of protestation against Indian control of part of Kashmir.
It is a national holiday in Pakistan. The essential issue of Kashmir, between India and Pakistan, has led Pakistan to face three wars and have paid a major portion of their national incomes to defense budgets. World leaders have stressed the need to resolve the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan to avoid a contingency that may cause a tragedy in the region.
Kashmir is the nuclear flashpoint of Asia, surrounded by three nuclear powers.
It is irremissible for the international community in general and governing world bodies, in particular, to interpose and force India to stop throwing innocent Kashmiri blood.
Kashmir should have the right to decide their destiny according to the UN resolutions, which were adopted to resolve the issue. Without any doubt, Kashmir is vena jugulars of Pakistan and it cannot obviously desert it under any conditions. With both the South Asian neighbors armed with nuclear weapons, another schematic war on Kashmir has the potential to turn into a nuclear exchange that could be fatal not only for South Asia but for the world at large.
