ISLAMABAD, Oct 26 (APP): Kashmir Study Forum (KSF) and
Pakistani community in Sri Lanka with support of Sri Lankan friends
will organize a peaceful assembly on Tuesday at 1100 hours
opposite to United Nation Office at Baudaloka Mawatha to mark
Kashmir Black Day.
A memorandum urging UN to play its role to resolve the oldest
unresolved dispute on UN agenda (since 1947), will also be handed over
to the UN office.
Similar peaceful assemblies will also be held in other parts
of the Island including Ampara, Batticaloa and Puttalam.
Pakistanis also observe Black Day to reiterate their support
to Kashmiri people in their struggle for the right of self-determination accepted by the United Nations resolutions.
As per details, Kashmiris living on both the sides of the Line
of Control have chalked out special programmes and protest rallies
to condemn Indian atrocities against the innocent people in the
occupied Kashmir. Pakistanis and Kashmiris living abroad have also
planned to hold several functions in various countries to draw the
world attention towards the plight of Kashmiris in the occupied
Kashmir.
Demonstrations and protest rallies have been planned in
different parts of the occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Azad Kashmir and
Pakistan on Black Day where political, social and educational
institutions will arrange different functions including seminars,
debates, declamation contests and quiz competitions.
Attention of the world community will be drawn towards the
long-standing Kashmir dispute for its durable solution and stopping
the atrocities of Indian forces against innocent Kashmiris and
people through demonstrations will urge the UN and international
community to take steps for the implementation of the Security
Council’s resolutions on Kashmir.
It may be recalled that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his
address to the UN General Assembly last month had forcefully
highlighted the Kashmir issue and stressed the need for its early
resolution to ensure peace in the region.
Kashmiris and Pakistanis all over the world observe Black Day
on October 27 to condemn illegal landing of Indian occupying forces
in Jammu and Kashmir. It was on this day in 1947 that Indian
forces invaded Kashmir in violation of the partition plan of the
subcontinent.
Kashmiris observe Black Day every year to renew their pledge
that they will continue their unprecedented peaceful struggle for
their right to self-determination.
