ISLAMABAD (APP) - Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and their supporters the world over will observe October 27 as black day – the day when Indian forces illegally landed in Srinagar in 1947, marking a chapter of occupation, subjugation and oppression for the innocent people.

Black Day is observed every year to protest India’s illegal occupation and remind the world community of its commitments regarding the implementation of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions that advocate Kashmiris’ right to plebiscite.

In Srinagar, posters have appeared in different localities where people have been asked to observe October 27 (Friday) as black day, Kashmir Media Service (KMS) has reported.

The posters displayed by All-Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), Resistance Youth Forum Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Warseen-e-Shohda, Jammu and Kashmir Political Resistance Movement, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Movement, Jammu Kashmir Students Forum and others have described October 27, 1947 as the darkest chapter in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.

The posters pasted on walls, buildings and power poles relay the message that the Kashmiris would continue their struggle till they achieve their right to self-determination as promised by the international community.

People have been appealed to become a wall against the Indian BJP-RSS government’s Hindutva agenda in Kashmir by marking October 27 as black day.

India has been changing the education curriculum and dismissing Muslim employees to advance its Hindutva agenda in occupied Kashmir.

Social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp, are also being utilised to highlight Kashmiris’ right to self-determination and illegal Indian occupation of the valley.

In Muzaffarabad, under the auspices of the Shuhada Foundation Jammu and Kashmir, a massive protest rally will be taken out at Burhan Chowk to protest the illegal occupation. Prominent leaders of the movement are scheduled to address the participants, the foundation said in a statement.

Protest rallies, seminars, conferences are scheduled to be held in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan and all over the world to condemn invasion in 1947 and revocation of territory’s special status on August 5, 2019.

In a totally unprovoked move, India landed its army in Srinagar on October 27, 1947, based on the so-called accession deal with Maharaja Hari Singh and occupied it against the will of its people.

Ever-since India has been committing gross human rights violations in the territory and since 1989 as many as 96,246 people had been martyred in the territory.

The nightmare that started in October 1947 has not ended yet for the people of Kashmir who are suffering every single day.

Currently, India maintains around one million troops in Kashmir, making it the most militarised zone in the world.
