Kashmir Black Day: Citizens struggle to regain their rights
Kashmiris in both Pakistani and Indian Kashmir regions are observing Black Day today to show the world that India has illegally taken control of their motherland.
Kashmiris on both sides of the Line Of Control are observing the black day to express grief over illegal control of the land.
According to Kashmir Media Service, protests, rallies, and seminars will be held in Srinagar and other areas of the occupied territory today in wake of black day. According to Kashmir media services, such activities will be held to condemn the Indian invasion as well as revocation of the special status of Kashmir by the Modi-led fascist regime.
On this day, a complete shutdown will be observed in the territory, call for which has been given by All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Democratic Freedom Party, and other pro-freedom organizations.
Indian Army had invaded the state of Jammu and Kashmir on this day in 1947, in an attempt to subjugate the Kashmiri people.
In August last year, India took brutal and illegal steps to change the internationally recognized disputed status of the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and alter its demographic structure.
Since then, New Delhi has failed to break the will of courageous people in IOJK. Kashmiris are struggling to get their rights back.
