The Islamia University of Bahawalpur observed Black Day to show solidarity with Kashmiris.
On this occasion, on the direction of Engr. Prof. Dr. Athar Mahboob, Vice Chancellor, special events, seminars and photo competitions were held in all the campuses in favour of Kashmiris right to self-determination against the aggressive occupation of occupied Kashmir.
The participants said that it is difficult to find an example in the history of the world of the oppression and cruelty inflicted on the people of Kashmir.
October 27, 1947 has become a dark day in history when Indian troops landed in Kashmir and the struggle for independence started from that day and till today the fourth generation of Kashmiris is fighting for their independence.
Recently, the Indian government removed the special status of occupied Kashmir and the special identity of Kashmiris and made a vicious attempt to end the independence movement by dividing the region into different parts.
The Bahawalpur Arts Council, in collaboration with the College of Art and Design the Islamia University of Bahawalpur, organized exhibiting works of art by teachers and students on the theme of Kashmiri struggle for freedom and violation of human rights.—PR
