LORALAI: Several rallies erupted across the country to protest against India who violated Line of Control (LoC) and killed two Pakistani soldiers.

According to details, a rally chanting ‘Bharat Murdabad’ was held in Loralai in which the participants expressed outrage over India’s senseless act of hostility.

The Hindu and Sikh communities also took to the streets in Kashmore to raise their voices against brutality shown my India. They also pledged solidarity with the innocent people of Kashmir.

The school going children were also seen taking part in various rallies to register their protests and anger against furious India in Sukkur.

On the other hand, locals in Gujrat also showed their resentment by urging the government to take notice of Indian violations with the involvement of international community.

Tensions between the two arch rivals have been boiling since the Indian government accused Pakistan-based militants of launching an assault on an army base in Kashmir earlier this month that killed 18 soldiers.

India said on Thursday it had carried out “surgical strikes” in Azad Kashmir, a claim that Pakistan condemned and denied.

On the same day, two Pakistani soldiers were martyred when Indian forces opened unprovoked firing in Bandala sector and Poonch’s Batal sector.

“This is a dangerous moment for the region,” Pakistan’s Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi told AFP after meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at UN headquarters in New York.

Ban Friday offered to act as a mediator between New Delhi and Islamabad to defuse the tensions.

India and Pakistan have fought three wars since they gained independence from Britain seven decades ago, two of them over the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.
