In occupied Kashmir, a Day of Pledge Reaffirmation is being observed on Friday as part of the campaign for the boycott of sham parliamentary elections in the territory.

The call for the observance of the day has been given by the joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

The complete shutdown will be held on April 9 and 12, in Islamabad and Srinagar constituencies where the farcical elections are scheduled to be held on these days.

The joint resistance leadership in a statement has urged the people to follow the Hurriyet calendar with the same spirit as was witnessed during the popular uprising in 2016.
