Kashmiris observe Accession to Pakistan Day across LoC


SRINAGAR: Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control are observing Accession to Pakistan Day Wednesday, renewing a pledge to continue the struggle for the liberation of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

Posters have appeared across Srinagar to mark the significance of July 19. The posters urge the United Nations, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and peace-loving countries to support the freedom struggle.

On this day in 1947, representatives of Kashmir unanimously passed the resolution of Kashmir’s Accession to Pakistan, during a meeting of All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference at the Srinagar residence of Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan.

The historic resolution called for accession to Pakistan in view of Kashmir’s religious, geographical, cultural and economic proximity, as well as the aspirations of millions of Kashmiri Muslims.

According to official figures, over 500,000 Kashmiris have laid down their lives for freedom from Indian occupation over the last seven decades.

More than 96,213 Kashmiris have fallen to Indian state terrorism, including 7297 in custody since January 1989.

At least 8,000 Kashmiri youth have been subjected to custodial disappearance, 11,259 women molested and 110,500 buildings destroyed during the same period.
