Islamabad, Oct 28: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said that calls for jihad against the Indian forces and providing support to the armed struggle in Kashmir would damage the cause of Kashmiris and are against the interest of Islamabad.

In a short video message shown on the state-run Pakistan Television (PTV) as people in Pakistan observed Sunday as the "Black Day" in support of Kashmiris, prime minister Khan said some elements were instigating Jihad and armed struggle in Kashmir.

"Today, I assure that the entire nation is standing by you (Kashmiris) and Pakistan will go to any length to help you," he said.

Separately, Khan said on Twitter that India should lift curfew in Kashmir.

Foreign Office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said he will apprise the world leaders about the situation in Kashmir.

"The world will be apprised once again of the enormity of the situation in Kashmir," he said.

Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after India abrogated provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution to withdraw Jammu and Kashmir's special status and bifurcated it into two union territories, evoking strong reaction from Pakistan.

India has categorically told the international community that the scrapping of Article 370 was an internal matter and also advised Pakistan to accept the reality.
