SCRIPT
Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Muzaffarabad, in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, on Sunday to demonstrate against India's decision to strip the Indian-administered part of the region of its autonomous status; and demand an end to Kashmir's lockdown.
The protest saw the participation of the Federal Minister of Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad.
"By entering Kashmir, don't be confused, India did not finish with its agenda. India can attack Azad Kashmir. An attack on Azad Kashmir will be a declaration of war. We don't depend on conventional weapons," he said, speaking on a stage.
Indian-administered Kashmir has been on lockdown since the Indian government stripped the region of its autonomous status, imposed a curfew and shut down all communications. The move angered Pakistan which responded by cutting off diplomatic and economic ties with India.
