Kashmiris observe black day against Indian occupation

The black day marks 70 years of the illegal occupation of Kashmir by Indian forces.

A complete shutdown is being observed in Occupied Kashmir and rallies are being taken out in world capitals.

Kashmiris on both sides of Line of Control (LoC), in Pakistan and all over the world are observing Black Day on October 27 when the State of Jammu & Kashmir was forcibly occupied by India way back in 1947 after the Hindu Maharaja had sold its people through illegal and fake Instrument of Accession although majority of which wanted to join Pakistan. Only in September 2017, Indian forces killed 22 people.

The President urged India to implement the United Nations resolutions as peace and prosperity of the entire region is linked with the resolution of the long standing dispute.

In their separate messages on the day, President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi reiterated Pakistan's unflinching and steadfast moral, diplomatic and political support for just cause of the Kashmiri people.


Sadiq lamented the indiscriminate use of pellet guns on unarmed protestors, human rights violations, desecration of human lives, rapes, depriving children of their eyesight, detention of Kashmiri leadership and imposition of curfew in IOK.

He added, "This support will continue till the realisation of the lawful right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir".

National Assembly Deputy Speaker Murtaza Javed Abbasi, in his message, mentioned the long history of human rights violations in IOK, and said the United Nations had declared the territory disputed.

In a statement issued here, The Bar Association calling upon Government of India said that that it was Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India, who besides other communications, had in his telegram dated 04.11.1947 assured Liaqat Ali Khan, the then Prime Minister of Pakistan that Indian government has no desire to impose its will on Kashmir but to leave final decision to the people of Kashmir and that India has agreed on impartial global agency like United Nations supervising any referendum.
