In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have reiterated the Kashmiris’ resolve to continue their struggle against India’s illegal occupation of their homeland.
The incarcerated Chairman of Hurriyat forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has asked Kashmiris to observe 27 October as Black Day worldwide.
The forum in a statement issued in Srinagar condemned continued house arrest of its Chairman since 5th August 2019.
It said that the Indian repression cannot break the will of the Kashmiri people and they will continue their struggle for right to self-determination despite Indian oppression.
Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) headed by incarcerated Shabbir Ahmed Shah while referring to devastating impacts of the India’s illegal occupation of the territory said that the invasion of Kashmir by India on 27 October 1947 was a naked aggression devoid of legal and moral justification.
Recalling Kashmiris’ historic resistance against the Indian occupation, the DFP spokesman Advocate Arshad Iqbal in a statement in Srinagar said, “Despite suffering at the hands of Indian tyrants the valiant people of Kashmir have never accepted its dominance in the region”.
Kashmiris, he said, neither accepted the hegemony of the Indian state in the past nor will they accept it in the future.
