Srinagar: While terming the 27 October as black day and the day of mourning for the Kashmiris, Joint resistance leaders comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik called for complete shutdown on Friday October 27, 2017.
“71 years back India without any constitutional and moral justifications forcibly occupied the state of Jammu & Kashmir on the same day and since then Indian forces are mercilessly killing innocent and unarmed Kashmiris, vandalizing their properties and are involved in sexual assault on women,” JRL said.
“27 October 1947 is an unfortunate day for the Kashmiris when we were deprived of our freedom and liberty and India against the wishes of the people landed its troops here. The people of the Jammu & Kashmir were neither asked for their viewpoint about this forced occupation and nor are their wishes and aspirations being respected today,” said JRL.
JRL said that as people are observing 27th October as black day and it will convey a message to global community that they are resisting and resenting the forced occupation and will continue till the last solider leaves the state and added that it also illustrates their wish that they will not accept anything less than freedom.
