The day is being observed every year by Jammu & Kashmir people to invite the attention of international community and the United Nations towards the early grant of right to self determination to Kashmir through implementation of the historic resolutions on Kashmir passed this day (January 5) in 1949 by the Security Council of the UNO.

The special meetings would highlight the importance of early grant of the right of self determination to Jammu Kashmir people – which was being suppressed and denied by India since over last seven decades.
This year the right of self determination day is being observed when India, by openly violating and denying all international norms and commitments, abrogated the special status of the internationally-acknowledged disputed state of the Himalayan state of Jammu & Kashmir through scrapping article 370 and 35-A of her own constitution since here

Addressing the scheduled Right To Self Determination day rallies, speakers would reiterate Kashmiris just and principled stance before the world that they (Jammu Kashmir people) would continue their struggle for right of self determination till the achievement of the
ultimate goal. They would particularly highlight the reality with the earnest demand about early grant of the birth right of self determination to Kashmiris without further delay and which was being denied by India since over last 72 years because of her traditional hostile and stubborn attitude.
The right of self determination day reiterates the long cherished demand of the Kashmiris that they should be granted their birth right to decide about their destiny under the spirit of the internationally-acknowledged U.N resolutions.
“It would be once again declared by the Kashmiris before the world, through the special day long special meetings at both sides of the line of control and rest of the world that the Kashmir problem should be resolved only in accordance with the United Nations resolutions
– and no solution of the lingering global dispute sans the aspirations of the Kashmiris would be acceptable to them (Jammu Kashmir people)”, said visiting Chairman of UK-based Global Pakistan Kashmir Council (GPKSC) Raja Sikader Khan one of the major organizers engaged in hosting a special ceremony on January 5 to observe the day in Mirpur in a befitting manner.
Talking to APP here, Khan said that participants of the scheduled ceremony to be hosted under the auspices of his organization, will reiterate Kashmiris longstanding demand for the early settlement of Kashmir issue according to their wishes. He said that that since Kashmiris were the basic and actual party to the Kashmir problem, this reality could not be ignored.
