KARACHI: In an atmosphere where prominent personalities are afraid to speak in favour of Kashmiris, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has expressed solidarity with Kashmir. In a video shared by a Twitter user, Cortez was seen writing a message on a board set up at a protest site, according to Huffington Post. The Twitter user thanked Cortez for taking out the time to stand by Kashmiris.
Cortez later retweeted the video and wrote the following message: “We stand for the basic human dignity of Kashmiris [and] support democracy, equality, and human rights for all — including the most vulnerable.”
She further stated: “Reports of violence & torture are extremely concerning, and the blockade from communication and life-saving medical care must end.”
