Kashmiris to observe Oct 27 as black day: Shabbir Shah
25 October, 2012
SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, senior leader of All Parties Hurriyet Conference (APHC), Shabbir Ahmad Shah has said that the people of Kashmir will observe October 27 as Black Day to convey to India that they reject its illegal occupation on Jammu and Kashmir.
It was on 27th October in 1947 when Indian troops landed in Srinagar and forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir in total disregard to the partition plan of the Subcontinent and against the aspirations of the Kashmiris.
He deplored that India had not vacated Jammu and Kashmir despite the passing of more than a dozen resolutions by the United Nations Security Council and the promises to the Kashmiris that they would be given an opportunity to decide their fate by themselves.
Shabbir Ahmad Shah said that New Delhi was using repressive tactics to subjugate the Kashmiris and had enacted draconian laws in the territory that caused terrible miseries and sufferings to the people.
He said that India held sham elections in the occupied territory time to time to hoodwink the world community that there was democracy in the occupied territory. He said now the world has realised that the people of Kashmir were not happy with India and wanted liberation from their bondage.
Shabbir Ahmad Shah said that hundreds of thousands of Kashmiris had rendered their lives for the Kashmir cause and their sacrifices would not be allowed to go waste.
