Thousands of Kashmiri people observed a “black day” in Kashmir on Sunday.
The rally was set up by the United Jihad Council (UJC), which consists of 16 groups, outfits and political parties, and was attended by insurgent groups including Hizb-ul-Mujahidin and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
A crowd of around 3,000 people shouted “Al-Jihad”, “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) and “We want Freedom” as they gathered in Muzaffarabad.
“The only way to liberate Kashmir is jihad and armed struggle because India does not understand the language of dialogue,” said Syed Salahuddin, chairman of the UJC.
October 27 is the darkest day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over observe it as the Black Day because on this day in 1947 India had forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir by landing its army in Srinagar against the will of the Kashmiri people and in total disregard to the Indian Independence Act and Partition Plan.Last Mod: 27 Ekim 2013, 17:08
