Social activist and wife of Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik, Mishal Malik on Tuesday said that India has taken every right from the people of illegally occupied Kashmir.
In her message on the occasion of India s Republic Day, Mishal Malik said that Indian authorities have arrested Hurriyat leadership to shut their voices against the ongoing atrocities in the valley.
Thousands of Kashmiris are bearing jail terms without committing any crime, she added.
She said that On the other hand, Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and the world over are observing the Indian Republic Day as Black Day to convey the message to the international community that India continues to deny them their inalienable right to self-determination.
According to report, call for the observance of the Black Day was given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Mirwaiz-led Hurriyat forum and other Hurriyat organizations.
The day was marked by a complete strike in occupied Kashmir and anti-India demonstrations and rallies in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan and world capitals to give a strong message to the world that India being usurper of Kashmiris’ fundamental rights has no right to observe the day in the occupied territory.
People through posters, displayed by APHC, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Alliance and Youth Freedom Fighter in Srinagar, Pulwama, Tral, Kulgam, Islamabad, Shopian, Kupwara, Handwar, Bandipore and others areas of the valley boycotted all Indian official celebrations and hoisted black flags on the rooftops of their houses, shops and other buildings.
