Pakistanis Observe ‘Black Day’ Today Over Kashmir

Pakistanis on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and across the world held demonstrations to mark the anniversary of what they termed India’s invasion and occupation of Kashmir on Oct 27, 1947, reports said.

The day will be observed as a ‘black day’ to protest against India’s illegal occupation of the disputed Himalayan territory of Jammu and Kashmir. Both Pakistan and Kashmiris have reportedly claim that the Indian move was in total violation of the British Partition Plan under which Muslim majority states in sub-continent had to go with Pakistan.

The Pakistani nation stands united with the Kashmiri people in their struggle for right to self-determination, Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said Monday.

“The hearts and minds of all Pakistanis are with Kashmiris,” he said at a seminar organised by the Youth Forum for Kashmir at the International Islamic University, Islamabad.

He said thousands of people attended the march in London Sunday to express solidarity with the people of Kashmir, Dawn online quoted Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) as saying.

Meanwhile, for Kashmir Affairs Chaudhry Barjees Tahir said, “The Pakistani nation will show solidarity with its Kashmiri brothers by observing a ‘black day’ in all provinces.” However, according to reports, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) Chairman has said India should hold a referendum in Kashmir like that held recently in Scotland to solve the issue politically.

Amid, while addressing the session of the United Nations General Assembly recently, the Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has reiterated Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir issue and has boldly urged the member countries to force India to abide by the the UN resolutions on Kashmir issue.

He has reportedly said that Pakistan’s “support and advocacy of the right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir is a historic commitment and duty, as a party in the Kashmir dispute.”

In New York, Pakistanis staged a demonstration in front of the UN building. In Brussels, members of the Pakistani community gathered to express solidarity for the cause of Kashmir.

  1. First look into your issues Pakistan then think of others.
    Dont think india is not reacting means its coward. When it will burst pak will be no more in the world map.

  2. No kashmiri wants to go with the pakistan, average educated kashmiri knows that pakistan ceded 5000 sq km area of their illegally occupied kashmir to china in 1963. They were too scared to fight china. 200 chinese companies are mining for uranium , copper, and sapphires in gilgit baltistan area which is a part of pakistani occupied kashmir.local kashmiris have no jobs and their resources are being exploited to the max by China. Now pakistan is in process of leasing that area, which is 73000 sq kms of kashmir land to China for 50 years. There is no representation of kashmiri people in pakistani parliament. Pakistan occupied kashmir is just a resource provider for their feeble economy, terrorist heaven where local Shia kashmiris are being killed by sunnis from north west province. Pakistan is incapable of handling it’s occupied kashmir financially and ethically. They are selling all its illegaly occupied territories to china bit by bit. Separatists in kashmir forced local kashmiri pundits into exile in other states of india by violence. There are lot of Buddhist monasteries in the same state. Not to mention pakistan ‘s occupation of balochistan. What do you want to say about that? Balochistan was not even under indian viceroy before partition. How do you justify there occupation? I have been to Karachi and I have seen the way you treat baloch people. They are being referred to as dogs. No one in the world believes what you bark about everything? Pakistan is hiding dawood ibrahim, saeed hafeez, Osama bin Laden were hiding next to military academy. And bugti was shot dead in his home. Pak has no credibility whatever they say to the world.

  3. You need to correct your GK, Pak has occupied the Kashmir. Hari Singh, King of Kashmir agreed to join India.
