In Occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown will be observed across the territory on Thursday to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of July 13, 1931 martyrs.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over will observe the day to reiterate the pledge that they will continue the mission of their martyrs till the achievement of the inalienable right to self-determination.

The day will be marked by a march towards Naqashband Sahib in Srinagar where martyrs of 1931 are buried.

On 13th July 1931, the troops of Dogra Maharaja had killed 22 Kashmiris outside Central Jail in Srinagar during the court proceedings against Abdul Qadeer who had asked Kashmiri people to defy the Dogra rule.

Meanwhile, the joint resistance leadership has written a petition to the member states of the United Nations, international organizations and human rights defenders urging them to play their role in finding out a just settlement of long standing Kashmir dispute.

The petition said that Kashmir was being ruled by military power and legitimate rights and aspirations of Kashmiri people are being trampled under the jack-boots of Indian occupational forces.
