NEW DELHI, JULY 23

The Rashtriya Sawayam­se­vak Sangh (RSS) has said that its Mus­lim wing, the Mus­lim Rashtriya Manch, will launch a mass move­ment in Jammu and Kash­mir against Pak­istan's il­le­gal oc­cu­pa­tion of Kash­mir on Au­gust 9.

RSS pracharak and na­tional ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber In­dresh Ku­mar said that aim of the move­ment to ask Pak­istan to va­cate that part of Kash­mir and has urged all other po­lit­i­cal par­ties to take part in the ag­i­ta­tion.

"The Mus­lim Rashtriya Manch has de­cided to launch a mass move­ment on Au­gust 9. The aim of the move­ment is to raise voice against Pak­istan ask­ing them to leave that part of the Kash­mir," Ku­mar told ANI. "If this takes place, then a ma­jor change is ex­pected to take place in Kash­mir," he added. The POK, which lies to the west of Jammu and Kash­mir, was oc­cu­pied dur­ing a war fought be­tween In­dia and Pak­istan in 1947. Fol­low­ing the 1949 cease­fire agree­ment with In­dia, the Gov­ern­ment of Pak­istan di­vided the north­ern and western parts of Kash­mir that it oc­cu­pied into two sep­a­rate en­ti­ties, namely Azad Kash­mir and Gil­git-baltistan.
