The Nation observing Defence and Martyrs Day today (Friday) as ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ to reaffirm the support of Pakistani nation to the oppressed people of occupied Kashmir.
Since August 5, 2019, the residents of the occupied valley are living under a strict curfew and other crippling restrictions. This was even a day before Indian government abrogated Articles 370 and 35A, revoking the special status of India’s only Muslim-majority state.
By stripping Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) of its special status, New Delhi blocked its right to frame its own laws and allowed non-residents to buy property. More than 4,000 people have been detained since August 5.
