Kashmiris observe India’s Independence Day as Black Day

Srinagar, August 15, 2018 (PPI-OT): Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over are observing the Indian Independence Day, today, as Black Day to convey the message to the international community that India continues to illegally occupy their homeland.

The Black Day is being marked by a complete strike in the occupied territory, call for which has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik. All shops, business establishments, offices and petrol pumps are closed while traffic is off the road.

The occupation authorities have taken stringent measures in the name of so-celled security and deployed Indian army, paramilitary and police personnel in strength in all major cities and towns of the occupied territory to prevent people from holding anti-India demonstrations. Tight security measures have been taken in Srinagar and Jammu cities.

In Srinagar, thousands of troops and policemen are patrolling the deserted streets, lanes and by lanes to thwart any attempt of people to stage pro-freedom and anti-India demonstrations. A cricket stadium at Sonawar, the main venue of Independence Day parade, has been placed under siege. All roads leading to the venue have been blocked by the forces’ personnel with iron barricades, armoured vehicles and concertina wire. Sharpshooters have been deployed in all sensitive areas and vital installations. Closed circuit TV cameras are also being used to monitor the movement of people. The authorities have suspended mobile phone and Internet services in most parts of the occupied territory.

Meanwhile, Indian police arrested Muhammad Yasin Malik from his residence in Srinagar, today, and lodged him at Kothibagh Police Station. Other Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Ghulam Ahmed Gulzar, Bilal Siddiqi, Hakeem Abdul Rasheed, Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, Javaid Ahmed Mir, Zafar Akbar Butt and Ghulam Nabi Waseem have been placed under house arrest or in custody. The actions are aimed at preventing the leaders from leading anti-India protests.

15th August Black Day For jammu and Kashmir: Farooq Rehmani

Islamabad, August 15, 2018 (PPI-OT): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has said that the Kashmiri people have been forced by India’s military and police horror, terror and torture of unimaginable magnitude to observe black day on 15th August – Indian Independence Day and protest as always across the territory against its forcible occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad said that India, instead of fulfilling its pledged plebiscite as per the UN resolutions, continued to hoodwink the world opinion by telling white lies, increasing enormously its military machinery and imposing draconian laws to crush public anger and destabilize the regional peace.

He said India had killed thousands of innocent Kashmiris and destroyed rich habitat and environmental beauty and humanity in and around occupied Kashmir. He warned that India was bent upon changing demographic character of the occupied territory by amending its own constitutional clauses related to the state subject law. “The volatile situation should be taken notice of by the UN and a commission of inquiry should be appointed by the World Body to directly investigate the human rights violations in Kashmir,” he said.

The JKPFL Chairman deplored that India’s National Investigation Agency had unleashed a reign of terror to intimidate the Kashmiris and a large number of detained political leaders and workers including women leaders were being lodged in Indian prisons after being arrested by the NIA. He stated all the segments of the society irrespective of race and religion equally among Muslims and non-Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir were feeling insecure, threatened, and restless because of Delhi’s fresh design to repeal the 35-A of the Indian Constitution.

Farooq Rehmani appealed to the UN to encourage and facilitate dialogue between Pakistan and India and monitor the talks process to find out a lasting resolution of the Kashmir dispute, which was call of the time, according to the UN charter and its relevant resolutions, failing which peace might be jeopardized with an unimaginable speed.
