Srinagar, July 25 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has reiterated its call for a black day on August 5 and a strike, saying that on that day the people of the territory would reaffirm their commitment to the liberation movement.

The Indian government on August 5, 2019 had repealed the Kashmir’s special status and divided into two union territories besides imposing lockdown and military siege in the territory.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that India was trying all means of oppression to suppress the Kashmir liberation movement. It is committing blatant and serious human rights violations but the international community and the world powers have become mute spectators, he added.

The spokesman said, “This is the result of India’s traditional policy of bigotry which has forced our youth to sacrifice their lives.” He said that India wanted to weaken the indigenous liberation movement through use of brute force but would never succeed.

He said that by observing a complete strike and Black Day on August 5, the people of Kashmir would prove to the Indian authorities that they would not accept the forcible occupation of Kashmir and change of Muslim majority status of the territory into a minority.

Explaining the details of the August 5 programmes, the spokesman said that on thie day, the people of the territory would observe blackout in the evening and after Maghrib prayers, anthems of freedom will be sung in the mosques.

He also paid tributes to martyrs of Ranbirgarh area of Srinagar and added that the martyrdom of two youth, Ashfaq Rasheed Khan and Ejaz Ahmad proved that every child of Kashmir was devoted to the spirit of liberation and was not willing to accept India’s aggressive occupation in any way.

Paying homage to the martyrs of Ranbirgarh in glorious words, he said, “We are indebted to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives to free our future generations from the worst slavery in India.”
