SRINAGAR: Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control, in Pakistan and all over the world observed Youm-e-Istehsal, Friday, to register their protest against Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government’s illegal action taken of 5th August 2019.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the Modi regime in gross violation of the United Nations resolutions and international law repealed the special status of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and put it under military siege on this day in 2019.
Illegally detained APHC Chairman, Masarrat Alam Butt in a message from an Indian jail, released in Srinagar, said August 5, 2019 is one of the blackest days in IIOJK. He said the purpose of observing the day as Youm-e-Istehsal is to sensitize the international community about New Delhi’s brutal repression being carried out by its more than one million occupation troops in the territory.
He said the people of IIOJK are standing firm against Indian occupation of their homeland and they have completely rejected all the unconstitutional and illegal imperialist measures taken by Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government on August 05, 2019.
Democratic Political Movement, a constituent of APHC, in a meeting in Srinagar said with the illegal and unilateral actions of 5th August 2019, India has not only violated the UN Security Council resolutions and international law on Kashmir, but has also violated its own Constitution.
It called upon the international community and human rights organizations to play their role in resolving the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people and the United Nations resolutions so that permanent peace can be established in South Asia.
APHC leader, Chaudhry Shaheen Iqbal, in a statement in Srinagar said that August 5, 2019, like October 27, 1947, has added another dark chapter in India’s long history of colonialism in Kashmir. He said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tried to mislead the international community by using his Parliament to revoke the special status of Kashmir. He said the Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute as per the UN resolutions. India is trying to give the impression to the international community through colonialist measures that Kashmiris are recognizing the annexation of India, but the fact is that not only the international community but also New Delhi is aware of the reality of the Kashmir dispute, he maintained.
