Oct 27 to be observed as 'Black Day' after Kashmir annexation: Gandapur.


ISLAMABAD -- Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Ali Amin Khan Gandapur Saturday said October 27 would be observed as the 'Black Day' not only in Pakistan but across the globe after annexation of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ and K) by New Delhi.

'This year, people from across the world will observe October 27 as Black Day after the Indian government stripped the Kashmir of its special status on August 5,' he said while addressing a press conference here.

Amin said the government had finalized all arrangements to mark October 27 as 'Black Day' at national and international level in a befitting manner to express solidarity with people of IOJ and K, facing illegal occupation for the last 72 years and heightened oppression and curfew since August 5.

He said the government had chalked out a comprehensive programme to observe the day, highlighting brutalities and massive human rights violations, being committed by the Indian troops to suppress the indigenous freedom struggle of Kashmiris, who want their legitimate right to self-determination in line with the resolutions, passed by the United Nations Security Council.
