Kashmiri people on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world will observe Black Day on Thursday against the illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir by India.
In a statement in Srinagar, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference appealed the people to observe complete strike on October 27 in the occupied valley to convey the world that they want immediate end to Indian occupation of their homeland.
It was on 27th October in 1947, when Indian troops invaded Jammu and Kashmir and occupied it in total violation of the Partition Plan of the subcontinent and against the Kashmiris’ aspirations.
Meanwhile, posters have appeared in Srinagar and other areas wherein people have been asked to observe October 27, as black day.
The posters pasted on walls, buildings and electric polls said the Kashmiris will continue their struggle till they achieve their right to self-determination as promised by the international community.
Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) has planned to organize a series of activities to mark Kashmir Black Day.
According to an official of PNCA, the speech and tableaus contests will be arranged among the students of schools and colleges to educate them about the struggle of Kashmiri people for their right of self-determination.
