Thousands participate in Black Day rally
Thousands of people of the federal capital and Rawalpindi participated in ‘people’s rally’ here Thursday to observe black day in condemnation of Indian brutal actions in the Occupied Kashmir. The participants were carrying black flags as a mark of protest against Indian occupation and repression of the legitimate struggle of the Kashmiri people for their right of self-determination.
The black day rally starting from Convention Centre, Islamabad terminated at the Foreign Office. Apart from common people of the twin cities, Member Parliament also participated in the rally. A large number of school children and women took part in the rally. Members of Islamabad Market Committee ICT and traders participated in the rally with enthusiasm. Deputy Commissioner Islamabad, Hamza Shafqaat was present at the rally to personally ensure security and maintenance of law and order.
The right of the Kashmiri people was promised by India itself but now it refuses to honour its commitment to the Kashmiri people who are struggling for liberation from the Indian yoke. India has failed to subjugate the Kashmiri people through brutal military measures. It is not yet inclined to honour its commitment for holding plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir as provided in the UN Security Council Resolutions. Indian atrocities have climaxed in the wake of Moodi government’s 5 August decision of scrapping Kashmir’s autonomous status.
The world leaders have condemned latest Indian decision that has further complicated the Kashmir issue. The Pakistan government as well as people of the country and Azad Kashmir are resenting the Indian action. They are expressing solidarity with the struggling people of Indian Occupied Kashmir. On Thursday, black rallies were taken out not only in Pakistan and Azad Kashmir but world over by the Kashmiri diaspora to condemn the Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir.
