In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a complete blackout will be observed, today, between 8:00pm to 9:00pm as a mark of resistance against the India’s continued illegal occupation of the territory, its state terrorism and the machinations to suppress the Kashmir freedom movement.

Call for the observance of the blackout has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and supported by other Hurriyat leaders and organizations including Jammu and Kashmir National Front, Jammu and Kashmir Political Resistance Movement, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League and activists of civil society and representatives of trade unions.

The APHC said that the blackout would be a symbol of the Kashmiris’ protest against the Indian tactics to erase their distinct identity through illegal actions taken by Modi regime on August 5, 2019.

It maintained that the Kashmiris had a glorious history of resilience and an enviable tradition of fighting against oppressors and invaders.—KMS
