SCRIPT
Thousands of supporters of the Pakistani Jamaat-e-islami political party attended a rally in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan's Azad Jammu and Kashmir territory, in support for freedom for the Indian-controlled section of Kashmir, on Thursday.
Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman, President of Jamaat-e-islami said that both India and Israel are illegal occupiers. ''Like we don't accept Israel's occupation of Palestine, in the same way we can't accept India's occupation of Kashmir," Fazal stated, adding that "to recognise Israel is to accept their occupation of Palestine."
The rally was organised in the University College grounds and the Prime Minister of Pakistani Azad Kashmir, Farooq Haider also attended the rally as a special guest.
Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir has been on lockdown since the beginning of August, when India stripped the region of its autonomous status. A curfew, restrictions on travel, communications and movement were all imposed. The move sparked outrage in Pakistan, which responded by cutting off diplomatic and economic ties with India.
