SRINAGAR: In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Modi regime, with help of Indian troops and police personnel, forcibly used schools boys, teachers and employees for official functions of Indian Republic Day, the 26th January, in the territory.
The Kashmiris marked India’s Republic Day as Black Day and sent a loud and clear message to the world that they reject India’s illegal occupation of their motherland.
Local residents told the media that Indian troops and intelligence agencies had warned the people, particularly the administrations of schools and government employees, of severe consequences if they did not participate in the official functions.
Eyewitnesses said that the Indian army organised official functions in connection with the Indian Republic Day in several areas of the territory and forced people to participate in the so-called functions.
The Namberdar (village representative), District Development Councils and their paid agents of the area were assembled by the Indian Army in different areas for the official function. Pertinently, the whole occupied Kashmir has been under military and police siege since August 5, 2019.
