In occupied Kashmir, India’s Republic Day has brought more miseries to the already besieged people as Indian troops have intensified checking and frisking in Srinagar city and other parts of the territory in the name of so-called security measures.

While the Kashmir Valley remains under strict military lockdown on 174th straight day, today (Saturday), Indian troops and police personnel have been deployed in strength to keep a watch on the movement of people.

Meanwhile, Chairman, APHC, Syed Ali Gilani has appealed to Kashmiris living all over the world to observe Indian Republic Day tomorrow as Black Day.

In a statement in Srinagar, he said democracy is the name of respecting aspirations and opinion of people but India, in the garb of so-called democracy, has always suppressed Kashmiris’ aspirations and kept them under illegal military occupation for the last over 72 years.
