Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and world over will observe Youm-e-Istehsal tomorrow to convey the world that they have completely rejected all the unconstitutional and illegal imperialist measures taken by Indian government on August 05, 2019.  

In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has appealed for complete shut down on this occasion.

The illegally detained Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Masarrat Alam Butt has said that August 5, 2019 is one of the blackest days in the history of Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

In a message from Indian jail, he said Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory and scrapping of its special status by India is not only a violation of the United Nations resolutions on Kashmir but also a blatant violation of the international law.

Meanwhile, Senior APHC leader, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, completed three years of continued illegal house detention, today. The occupation authorities had placed him under house arrest on August 04 in 2019, a day before the Modi regime revoked the special status of Indian Illegally Occuped Jammu and Kashmir.

Youm-e-Istehsal will also be observed across the country on Friday to mark the completion of third year of Indian military siege of Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and denounce illegal, immoral and unconstitutional step to strip its special status.

The government has planned a series of activities including seminars and conferences to mark the Youm-e-Istehsal and express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people. Rallies in their support will be staged across the country with vibrant participation of people from all walks of life.

The whole nation will give a message to their Kashmiri brethren that the people of Pakistan will always stand with them in their just struggle for right to independence and against the atrocities committed by the Indian forces.

On August 5, 2019, the Modi-led Bhartiya Janata Party government struck down Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution, thereby scrapping the law that granted Kashmir its special status.
