February 5 has for decades been observed as Kashmir Solidarity Day. This year, it assumed added significance because of India's total lockdown in Indian Occupied Kashmir since August 5, 2019. Tens of thousands of Kashmiri youth have been arrested and imprisoned in unknown locations. There are grave fears for their safety and security.
Eight million Kashmiris live under Indian occupation where India impose a total lockdown last August while four million live in Azad (Free) Kashmir (AJK) on the Pakistani side. There are also 40,000 Kashmiri refugees in AJK that had fled Indian military terror in 1989-1990. They have not seen loved ones ever since.
Muslim 'religious' leaders have exposed their cowardice over the Kashmir crisis. It matters not which side of the sectarian divide they come from, they have all surrendered to Hindu fascism.
The suffering of the people of Kashmir at the hands of Indian occupation forces is well known yet the indifference of governments worldwide to their plight is absolutely shocking.
Used to terrorizing Kashmiris seeking independence from India’s brutal occupation, Delhi thought it could force Britain also to adopt a similar policy. The All Parties Parliamentary Group on Kashmir in the British Parliament will hold Kashmir Solidarity Day in the British Parliament today.
India put its navy ï the fourth largest in the worldï on full alert in the Indian Ocean on June 17, a somewhat surreal response to the successes of Kashmiri mujahideen among the frosty peaks of the Himalayas 1,000 miles away.
India is an artificial State. This may surprise many in the Indian-doting west brought up to regard India as being the ‘largest democracy’ in the world, but this is gradually becoming apparent
February 5 is traditionally observed as Kashmir Day in Pakistan. This year it was no different although it was somewhat overshadowed by the just-concluded elections in Pakistan.
