Youm-e-Istehsal on August 5 will mark the first anniversary of the abrogation of Article 370, and Kashmir is still under curfew.

Neither Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor Home Affairs Minister Amit Shah had the guts to visit Kashmir & answer the people in this entire past year.

Turned into an open-air prison, where people being punished and criminalized for showing dissent; the atrocities inflicted upon Kashmiris are a textbook definition of crimes against humanity. 

However, the people and the leadership of Pakistan has always stood beside Kashmiri brethren and supported and will continue to do so to their right of self-determination.

In this regard, the entire nation will observe Youm-e-Istehsal on August 5 to show solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people on completion of a one-year military siege by brutal Indian forces.

It was on the 5th August last year, the same day that witnessed the abolition of Kashmir’s special constitutional status.

A host of events have been arranged in order to denounce the Indian unilateral illegal actions against Kashmiri people as well as the atrocities being carried out by the Indian forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
