Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world are observing the Indian Republic Day as Black Day today (Tuesday).
The Black Day is being observed to draw the attention of International communities towards the illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
According to the Kashmir media service, the call for the observance of the Black Day has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz-led Hurriyat forum, and other Hurriyat leaders and organizations.
A complete strike in Occupied Kashmir will be held. Moreover, anti-India protests and rallies will also be held in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan, and the world capitals. All shops and businesses are closed while no traffic is seen on the roads.
According to the Kashmir media service, the practice of observing January 26 as Black Day by Kashmiris keeps reminding the world that India is a murderer and a usurper and the sufferings and miseries of the Kashmiri people will only end when the last Indian soldier leaves Kashmir. The day will remain a dark day in the history of Kashmir as India has been trampling every right of Kashmiris since illegally and forcibly occupying IIOJK in 1947.

The MoU was signed by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood in Islamabad on Wednesday.
Pakistan and Turkey also agreed to pursue a joint strategy at the international level on matters of mutual interests in order to further strengthen the bilateral relations between the two countries.
