Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) are observing ‘Black Day’ as India celebrates its independence day today.

Kashmiris are observing “Black Day” in a protest to highlight India’s atrocities and illegal occupation of their land.

The people of Kashmir on both side are making an attempt to convey a message to the international community of how miserably Indian government is suppressing them and depriving them of their right of self-determination.

The Black Day is being marked by a complete shutter-down strike in the occupied territory, Kashmir Media Service reported.

The strike was announced by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
