Kashmiris observe India’s Independence Day as Black Day
Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world have observed the Indian Independence Day, as Black Day in protest against New Delhi’s illegal occupation of their homeland.
The day is marked by a complete shutdown and civil curfew in IIOJK call for which has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and supported by all Hurriyat leaders and organizations.
Black flags are hoisted everywhere in the occupied territory.
The Kashmiris across the world are holding anti-India demonstrations to draw world’s attention towards the Indian brutalities in IIOJK.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference leaders including Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Shabbir Ahmad Shah in their statements said India has no right to celebrate its Independence Day in IIOJK as it is holding the territory against the will of the Kashmiri people.
The leaders said India is rejoicing on its freedom but killing Kashmiris for demanding the same. Isn’t it a matter of shame for New Delhi? They pointed out that India has mercilessly killed over 96,000 Kashmiris in last 32 years but is still observing its Independence Day in the territory shamelessly.
New Delhi, they added, is celebrating its freedom from Britishers, today, but denying the same to the IIOJK people.
