ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and the World would observe the Indian Independence Day as ‘Black Day’ to expose the real face of India before the international community that usurped their inalienable right to self-determination.
In a statement on Friday, Mushaal Hussein Mullick, the wife of incarcerated Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik, vowed that Kashmiris across the world and Pakistani people would observe the Indian Independence Day as black day to convey a strong message to New Delhi and the World that the people of Kashmir rejected the unlawful and unconstitutional occupation of their land.
Mushaal said that India had no moral right to observe its Independence Day as it had held hostage millions of people and occupied the land of Kashmir illegally for the last over 73 years through military might.
Mushaal Hussein Mullick said the Kashmiri people would continue their just struggle to achieve their right to self-determination. She said the Kashmiri people would leave no stone unturned to foil the bid of the Indian extremist Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government to turn the Muslim majority into a minority in the Occupied Valley.
Mushaal Hussein Mullick, who is also the Chairperson Pakistan Peace and Culture Organization, deplored that the Indian forces continued their barbarism and inhuman violations in the valley where all basic human rights and civil liberties had been ruthlessly snatched but ironically the world so-called human right activities and UN bodies remained tightlipped in this regard.
Yasin Malik’s wife said that around one million Indian troops have been unleashed to terrorize and punish the whole population for demanding their birth right to self-determination; however they failed to silence the just voices of freedom fighters.
The Chairperson lamented that the heaven like valley has been turned into an open concentration camp where people have been subjected to unbelievable trauma and state terrorism for over the last one year but the World Community just saw the situation as silent spectators.
Meanwhile, Mushaal congratulated Pakistan on its 74th Independence Day and said that the Country played a significant role in highlighting the issue of Kashmir at global stage.
