ISLAMABAD: Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and across the world Sunday observed the Indian Republic Day as black day to convey to the international community that India’s claim of being a democratic republic was totally misleading, as it had denied the people of Kashmir their inalienable right to self-determination.
The call for the observance of Black Day was given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APC) leader Syed Ali Gilani, JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, the High Court Bar Association and other pro-freedom leaders and organisations.
The day was marked with complete strike in the Indian-occupied Kashmir. Gun-totting Indian troops and police were manning every nook and corner of all major cities and towns of the territory to ensure that people do not hold anti-India demonstrations.The occupation authorities have deployed troops and police personnel in strength around the Bakhshi Stadium — the main venue of official function in Srinagar and other vital installations across the valley.
