Nation Observes Youm-e-Istehsal To Mark Worst Indian Brutalities Against Kashmiris

The nation is observing Youm-e-Istehsal today to express solidarity with the enslaved Kashmiri people on completion of two years of the military siege of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

It was on the 5th of August 2019, the same day that witnessed the abolition of the special constitutional status of IIOJ&K, which was scrapped by the Modi government and is marked as Youm-e-Istehsal.

A host of events have been arranged in order to denounce the Indian one-sided illegal actions against Kashmiri people as well as the atrocities being carried out by the Indian forces in IOJK.

The participants of the walk wore black bands and carry the flags of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir. One minute of silence was observed across the country. Traffic was also halted for one minute and sirens will be sounded.
