LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world are observing the Indian Independence Day, today as Black Day and a complete shutdown is being observed on this occasion in the Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Call for the strike has been given by the veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Geelani, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, the Mirwaiz Umar Farooq-led Hurriyat forum and supported by almost all Hurriyat leaders and organizations.
The veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Geelani, in a message said that a nation that resorts to usurpation and deprives others of their freedoms, loses every right to celebrate its freedom.
The APHC spokesman in a statement deplored that all basic human rights and civil liberties have been ruthlessly snatched and violated by India in the occupied territory.
