Kashmiris on both sides of the LoC and around the world, including Pakistan are observing Black Day today. A complete strike was announced in the occupied valley.
In his message on Black Day, President Arif Ali said that on October 27, 1947, India had illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that in seven decades, India had made the Kashmiri people the victims of the worst state terrorism but the resolve of the Kashmiris had not been shaken.
The President said that the international community should hold India accountable for human rights violations in occupied Kashmir.
