Kashmiris to observe India’s independence day as black day today

MIRPUR AJK  -   Like all previous years Jammu and Kashmir State people living on both sides of the Line of Control and the rest of the world would observe India’s independence day falling today (August 15) as Black Day.

Kashmiris observe August 15, Indian independence day, every year as a black day to reiterate ever-lasting hatred against India and to register strong protest over Delhi’s forced Aug 05, 2019, sinister action of scrapping the special status of the internationally recognized Jammu and Kashmir state.

Kashmiris observe India’s all national days including independence day as black day to condemn India for constantly denying Kashmiris birth right to self-determination and to apprise the external world of India’s ongoing worst reign of state terrorism making people of occupied Jammu Kashmir state besieged, at gunpoint of over two million of her military and paramilitary troops.

India has unleashed history’s worst atrocities and state terrorism against the people in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) fighting for the liberation of the motherland from the forced Indian rule for the past 76 years.

“The observance of the scheduled Indian Independence Day as the black day is also aimed at expressing indignation against Indian imperialism for forcibly keeping the bulk part of the State in her unlawful and forcible occupation for the past 76 years,” organisers said.

“Anti-India rallies followed by protest demonstrations in all small and major cities and towns at both sides of the LoC, will be the hallmark of the day,” an AJK government spokesman told APP here Monday.

“Participants of the protest rallies will wear black bands around their arms as a sign of hatred against India, according to the organizers of the special black day programmes.”

“Black flags will be hoisted atop the private buildings by the protesting Kashmiris at both sides of the LoC,” the reports said.

In Azad Jammu & Kashmir, anti-India rallies will be staged and processions will be brought out in all small and major cities including AJK’s capital city of Muzafferabad and all other nine district headquarters of Mirpur, Kotli, Bagh, Bhimbher, Palandri, Rawalakot, Haveli, Jhelum Valley and Neelam valley by the people belonging to walks of life to reiterate severe hatred against the Indian imperialism.

Participants of the rallies will march in major city streets carrying black banners and placards to express hatred against India for turning the IIOJK into the world’s largest prison perpetuating brutalities and human rights abuses in the occupied state since August 05, 2019 – the black day in Jammu & Kashmir State’s history following revocation of the special status of the disputed Jammu & Kashmir at the gunpoint by the despotic and fascist BJP-led Indian government.

In Mirpur, DC Ch. Amjad Iqbal told APP that a major protest rally to observe the Indian Independence Day as the black day would be taken from District Courts premises in the city on Tuesday- August 15 at 10.30 a.m under the auspices of the National Events Organizing Committee Mirpur district, the grand forum of all public representative organizations representing all segments of the civil society, according to the local authorities.

“A large number of people from all shades of public opinion will attend, like all previous years to observe the Indian independence day as Black day,” the authorities underlined.
