Mirwaiz appeals people to observe black day on Friday


Senior APHC leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who continues to remain under house arrest since 4th August 2019 has appealed to the people of Jammu and Kashmir to observe 5th August as Black Day to convey a strong message to the entire world that Kashmiris do not accept India’s illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement released to the media in Srinagar said, “Kashmiris will continue their struggle till they achieve right to self determination. Oppression of India cannot stop them from getting their inalienable right”.

It was on 05 August in 2019 when RSS-backed fascist government led by the enemy of humanity Narendra Modi usurped political, social, religious and other basic rights of Kashmiris, turned the territory into a big open-air prison.

The Mirwaiz believes that the August 5 action is an attack on Kashmir’s unique identity, culture, demography and fundamental rights.

He urged the Kashmiris all over the world to hold protest demonstrations on Friday against the Indian aggression and to draw the attention of the world towards the suffering of oppressed people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

APHC leader Ghulam Mohammad Khan Sopori in a special party meeting termed the abrogation of special status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir through revocation of Article 370 on 5 August 2019, a ‘breach of promise’ and ‘treachery’ by India as well as apathy of the United Nations.

Expressing dismay at the fact that India got the courage to violate international laws and revoke the special status of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir despite United Nations resolutions because accept Pakistan and a handful of countries, the rest of the world maintained a criminal silence.

Khan Sopori said that through revocation of special status of Kashmir, the ruling regime of India tried to tarnish Kashmiriyat, humanity and democracy in the occupied territory for its nefarious political purposes and appealed to the peace-loving Indians to find a way to resolve the Kashmir issue besides restoring its special status and play their role in stopping the violation of human rights in occupied territory.

APHC leaders Hilal Ahmad War and Abdul Samad Inqilabi in their statements while terming August 5 a darkest day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir, said ” The Modi government has unleashed a reign of terror in IIOJK since August 5 , 2019 by using its occupational forces.” They appealed to the global community to intervene and stop the bloodbath in Kashmir.

APHC leaders Khadim Hussain and Syed Sibte Shabbir Qummi in a joint statement in Srinagar said that the sacrifice by the grandson of the Holy Prophet in Muharram , the first month of Islamic calendar, is a message of hope for all the oppressed nations including the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.—KMS
