It is important to remember that 15,000 Kashmiris have been imprisoned and 410 people have been martyred since Modi’s illegal act of Aug 5.

The people of Kashmir observe Black Day today (Thursday) at the request of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference. It has been two years since India withdrew the special status in Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK). A total shutdown will be observed in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir, and a march will be held to the Lal Chowk in Srinagar to protest the Narendra Modi government’s unlawful activities on August 5, 2019.

Modi regime in gross violation of the UN resolutions and international law revoked the special status of IIOJK and put the territory under military siege.

Call for the observance of the Black Day, shutdown and the march has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference as part of Ashra-e-Muzahamat, 10-Day Resistance calendar.

Following the RSS’s extreme ideology, the Modi government repealed Articles 370 and 35A from the Indian Parliament on August 5, 2019, abolished Occupied Kashmir’s special status and split Ladakh from Kashmir to create a Federally Administered Territory. Hindus from all over India were invited and given to domicile in IIOJK and the land was allotted at very cheap rates.

India increased the number of troops from 800,000 to 900,000, turned the valley into prison but the voice of Kashmiris could not be silenced, the brave Kashmiris were stunned.

In response to Kashmiris’ fears, India increased the number of troops on the ground from 800,000 to 900,000. They converted the valley into a prison, but Kashmiris’ voices could not be silenced, and the courageous Kashmiris were left speechless.

Unarmed protestors were attacked with pellet guns and bullets, and the sons of hundreds of mothers were martyred as a result. According to the Kashmir Media Service, in the last two years, the Indian Army arrested 15,000 Kashmiris, martyred 410 youths, tortured 59 Kashmiris to death in prisons, and injured more than 2,000 youths in protests and jails.

As many as 584 Kashmiris were fired upon with pellet guns out of which 26 persons lost their sight. More than 1000 houses were burnt down and the honors of 115 women were tarnished. But the international community remained a silent spectator, no action was taken against India for human rights violations and no pressure was put on India to implement Security Council resolutions.
