Islamabad, July 19: 40 political parties and hard line religious groups, some branded as terrorist organizations, will be staging a protest rally from Lahore to Islamabad. The rally has been organised to protest the unrest in Indian Kashmir.
The rally is likely to seek support from the Pakistani establishment for the 'liberation of Kashmit' in India. Pakistan has declared July 19 as Kashmir Solidarity Day.
Protests had erupted in Indian-administered Kashmir after the shooting of a well-known militant leader-Burhan Wani. These protests took a violent turn when a police post was set alight and a military airbase was targetted. Some 800 extra troops were sent to restore order.
