Pakistan Times Kashmir Desk
SRINAGAR (IHK): Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and all across the world will observe Black Day on Tuesday, the October 27, to convey to the international community that despite Indian state terrorism they reject its illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir, KMS reported on Sunday.
Call for the observance of the Day has been given by the All Parties Hurriyet Conference.
It was on October 27 in 1947 when Indian troops invaded Kashmir in clear violation of the partition plan of the Sub-continent and the Kashmiris’ aspirations.
The veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader Syed Ali Gilani said the Kashmiri people will observe shutdown on Wednesday, as well, the day when the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh is scheduled to visit the territory.
The APHC Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq addressing a moot in London emphasized that the sacrifices of the Kashmiri youth had centre-staged the Kashmir dispute at the international level and the world had realized the urgency of resolving the dispute.
Senior APHC leader, Shabbir Ahmed Shah in a statement issued in Srinagar said, India is occupying Jammu and Kashmir quite contrary to the norms of international law and the United Nations resolutions.
Indian police arrested Syed Ali Gilani and detained him in Humhama police station when he tried to venture out of his residence in Srinagar.
Massive protests continued at Kralgund in Handwara, today, against the killing of a 12th class student who was tortured to death in custody by Indian troops at Watergam in Rafiabad, yesterday.
