This is Muzzafarabad, the capital of Pakistani-administrated Kashmir. Pakistan enjoys an overwhelming public support in its controlled Kashmir region. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of capital city to express their resentment against India for stripping the region off its semi-autonomous status last month.

RNA - Since then, there has been no let-up in demonstrations led by Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan against a complete clampdown and communication blackout in the Indian-administered Kashmir.

Islamabad has been at the forefront of struggle to build up international pressure to compel New Delhi to lift unabated curfew which has led to severe shortage of food and medicines in the disputed region. 

Not very far from here, is Indian disputed Kashmir region which carries an odd distinction of being the biggest military zone in the world. Similarly after imposition of curfew, Indian controlled Kashmir region has become the biggest open air prison in the world.

Pakistani leaders challenged Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi to hold similar massive rally in his controlled Kashmir region to test his popularity, something they believe Modi would never do given an unprecedented public resentment against India in disputed Kashmir region.

New Delhi has refused to comply with numerous UN Security Council resolutions to let people decide on whether they want to stay with India or join Pakistan.
