SRINAGAR (KMS) – Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC), in Pakistan and all over the world are observing Black Day on Thursday, the 5th August, to convey a message to India and the international community that they reject New Delhi’s illegal actions taken on this day in 2019.

The Modi-led fascist Indian government in gross violation of the UN resolutions and international law revoked the special status of IIOJK and put the territory under the military siege.

The Black Day is marked by a complete shutdown and civil curfew by the people in IIOJK where all shops and business establishments are closed while traffic is off the road. The occupation authorities have deployed thousands of Indian troops and police personnel across the occupied territory to prevent people from conducting a march towards the Lal Chowk in Srinagar that is aimed at registering protest against Modi regime’s illegal actions of August 5, 2019. People have displayed black flags in different areas to express their resentment against India’s illegal occupation of their homeland.

Protest rallies, seminars and other events are being organised in Pakistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir and different parts of the world to draw attention of the international community towards the widespread killings, custodial disappearances, arbitrary detentions, molestation of women and vandalizing of residential houses by Indian forces in the occupied territory and highlight the Kashmir dispute.

Call for the observance of the Black Day, shutdown and the march has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference as part of the commencement of Ashra-e-Muzahamat, 10-Day Resistance, calendar. The APHC has also called for a complete blackout in IIOJK between 8pm to 8:30pm.

More Indian troops along with the flying squad have been deployed at Lal Chowk, Jehangir Chowk, Hari Singh High Street, Regal Chowk, TRC Ground, Polo View and the areas around the city centre to prevent the march towards the Lal Chowk. Random checking of vehicles and frisking of people is being done. Barricades have been erected on many arterial roads, including the entry and exit points to Srinagar. Patrolling has been intensified at district headquarters and close vigil is being maintained on the movement of people.
