Prime Minister Imran Khan will address the nation today on Kashmir issue, Special Assistant to the PM on Information and Broadcast Firdous Ashiq Awan said on Monday.
The prime minister will brief the nation on the current state of affairs in occupied Kashmir which has been under a clampdown since August 5 since when New Delhi revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which conferred it a special status.
Hundreds of political leaders have been detained by authorities since the move.

Last week, the prime minister warned the international community that the leadership of India would probably attempt a false flag operation to divert attention from the massive human rights violations and the unleashing of terror in occupied Kashmir.
“We are hearing India media claims that some terrorists from Afghanistan have entered IOJK [occupied Kashmir] for terrorist activities, while others have entered India’s southern regions,” the prime minister tweeted.
PM Imran added that these claims were predictable and being used to divert attention from India’s ethnic cleansing and genocide agenda in occupied Kashmir.
