JKNF calls for observing India’s Republic Day as black day



Srinagar: Calling for observing the Indian Republic Day as Black Day, Jammu and Kashmir National Front (JKNF) has said that a country that has usurped the fundamental rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir has no justification whatsoever to celebrate its republic day.

In a statement issued from Srinagar, a spokesman of the party (JKNF) Shafiq ur Rehman while condemning India’s illegal and forcible control over the territory said, “Since the past seven decades Indian occupational forces are engaged in trampling basic rights of Kashmiri people”

Notwithstanding their commitments of holding a free, fair, and impartial plebiscite to let the people of Jammu and Kashmir to decide their political fate, the Indian rulers have chosen a violent path to suppress by dint of force the aspirations of Kashmiri people.

The spokesman appealed to the Kashmiri masses to observe a complete strike on the day to convey to the world that India’s illegal occupation was not acceptable to them.
