Kashmiris observing Indian Republic Day, today, as Black Day

Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world are observing Indian Republic Day, today, as Black Day in protest against India’s continued denial of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination.

The Joint Resistance Leadership has given a call for complete shut down in the occupied valley today to remind the world that India’s continued denial of right to self-determination to Kashmiris is contrary to its claim of being a democratic republic.

Rallies and demonstrations will also be held in Azad Jammu and Kashmir at all district and tehsile headquarters today against the illegal Indian occupation of Kashmir.

In Muzaffarabad, AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan will lead the protest rally. Cabinet members, MLAs, Hurriyat leaders and people belonging to all walks of life will participate in the rally.

Different political, social and religious organizations have also arranged a number of protest demonstrations and rallies in Muzaffarabad to mark the day.
