Lt Gen (retd) Raza Muhammad Khan (Defence Expert):Modi govt announced public holiday on this day last year to propagate their version of a so called Instrument of accession of Kashmir with India _the instrument which historians have rejected as to have actually existed and even India does not have any such document. It was on this day in 1948 that the Indian occupational troops entered Kashmir and the Kashmiri people began rebelling.The Kashmiri people’s opposition to that illegal and forcible occupation of their land continues to-date. Muslims, Dalits and other minorities in India are being mistreated and forced to rebel. It’s a matter of great concern for the international community that if this Modi regime continues in India, the Indian nuclear weapons will also be in their hands-the hands of an extremist regime. OIC, UN and other world bodies should stand up against the human rights violations and atrocious treatment of Kashmiri people in the hands of India. India will not be able to contain China and will be a loser. The sooner India realizes this, the better it would be for the region
Abdul Majeed Mir, Hurriyat Leader:
