Indian Independence day was marked as Black day while protest rallies and demonstrations were organized at capital of AJK including other districts under the aegis of Pasban-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir. A large number of citizens gathered outside the Central Press Club in heavy rain to protest, the participants were waving black flags and wore black armbands.

The protesters carried banners stated with slogans against India and its illegal military occupation in Jammu and Kashmir. Speaking on the occasion, Speakers said that India has no moral justification to celebrate the Independence Day while usurping the freedom of the Kashmiri people. They maintained that Kashmiri people have given referendum against India by expressing anger on her independence day.

Speakers said that the brutal government of India has usurped the right to freedom of the people in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir(IIOJ&K). They voiced that Kashmiri people have given a referendum against India by completely rejecting the brutal actions of August 5, 2019 and India’s Independence Day on August 15. “The curfew and military siege in IIOJ&K is testament that Kashmiri people have nothing to do with India and they demand right to self determination”, they added.

The speakers demanded the United Nations Security Council to conduct free, fair and impartial plebiscite according to its resolutions before long for a peaceful solution of Kashmir issue.
