SRINAGAR: Kashmiri youth in Indian occupied Kashmir celebrated Pakistan’s independence day in the region with zeal and fervor.
In occupied Kashmir, at many places youth flouted restrictions imposed by the Indian forces and celebrated Pakistan’s Independence Day. Parades were held while Pakistan flag was hoisted in the length and breadth of the territory.
A video went viral on social networking sites shows dozens of veiled youth standing in queues and offering salute to Pakistani flag on the tune of the country’s national anthem. Syed Ali Gilani wished independence day to Pakistan, said that the Kashmiris were highly grateful to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for extending its wholehearted moral, political and diplomatic support to their just cause of freedom. He said that Pakistan was the only hope for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
On the other hand, Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world will observe the India’s Independence Day, as Black Day to convey the message to the international community that India has usurped their inalienable right to self-determination by the dint of force.
