PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Culture Department marked the Kashmir Black Day to apprise the world of the Indian forces atrocities inflicted on the innocent Kashmiris in the Occupied Jammu and Kashmir at Nishtar Hall here on Tuesday.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Culture and Tourism Authority (KP-CTA) Director General Kamran Ahmad Afridi was the chief guest.
Director Culture Shama Niamat, Assistant Director Riaz Khan, KP-CTA officials and a large number of students of various educational institutions attended the event.
“We are observing the Kashmir Black Day to condemn Indian illegal occupation of the state and to reiterate our unwavering support to the Kashmiri people struggling for their right to self-determination,” KP-CTA DG Kamran Ahmad Afridi said while speaking on the occasion.
He said that Indian Held Kashmir was an integral part of Pakistan and the day was not far that Kashmiris would be able to break the shackle of subjugation and join Pakistan.
The official added that the ongoing barbarism of Indian forces against the Kashmiri people cannot be concealed anymore from the eyes of the international community and soon the oppressed Kashmiris would get their right to self-determination.
The students also organized a walk in support of Kashmiri people besides arranging photo exhibition and tableaus to expose the Indian state terrorism in the Occupied Kashmir.
Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the globe also observed Black Day to convey to the world that India has occupied their motherland illegally and against their aspirations.
Indian Army had invaded the state of Jammu and Kashmir on this day in 1947, in an attempt to subjugate the Kashmiri people.
Since then, despite unabated Indian atrocities, India is unable to break the will of the brave people of Held Kashmir, who are struggling for their right to self-determination.
On August 5 last year, India took further illegal and unilateral steps to change the internationally recognised disputed status of the Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and alter its demographic structure.
Ralli with the people of held Kashmir.es were also staged across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to condemn Indian atrocities and expressed solidarity.
