Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Pakistan will always remain steadfast in its support for the Kashmiris’ just cause until the grave injustice done to the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) ends and Kashmiris are able to exercise their right to self-determination guaranteed by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.

The premier’s remarks came in a series of tweets on October 27 which Pakistan and millions of Kashmiris observe as a “Black Day” to condemn the beginning of the illegal occupation of parts of the state of Jammu and Kashmir by India.

“Today, Pakistanis & Kashmiris across the world commemorate Kashmir Black Day, when Indian troops landed in Srinagar to occupy & subjugate Kashmiri people. Since that black day in 1947, the illegal Indian occupation has failed to undermine the Kashmiris struggle for freedom,” the premier wrote on his official Twitter handle on Wednesday.

He said that the fascist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) regime has crossed all limits of brutality in IIOJK, regularly committing crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocidal acts against the brave and steadfast Kashmiris.

“Despite brutal suppression, Kashmir’s freedom movement has continued to grow,” he added.

Earlier, in his message on the occasion, the premier had said that India’s illegal occupation was meant to suppress the legitimate aspirations of the Kashmiri people to freely determine their future.

The prime minister added that the day commemorates the countless sacrifices Kashmiris have made and continue to make as they resist the inhuman occupation and subjugation by India against their will.

“Even after 70 decades of brutal rule by Indian Occupation Forces, the will of the Kashmiris remains strong. We salute Kashmiri men, women, and children for their resolve, courage, and determination,” PM Imran said, adding that Kashmiris are an inspiration for all freedom-loving people across the world.

He stated that the “long outstanding Jammu and Kashmir dispute” has been on the agenda of the UNSC since January 1948 and is an internationally recognised dispute as affirmed by numerous UNSC resolutions.

The premier went on to say that India had accepted the UNSC resolutions and made solemn commitments to the Security Council, Pakistan, other states, and the people of Jammu and Kashmir, yet the Indian unilateral action of August 5, 2019, showed their “sheer disregard for international law, global community, aspirations of Kashmiri People let alone the UNSC resolutions”.

The premier reassured his “Kashmiri brothers and sisters” that Pakistan will continue to provide all “possible support and stand shoulder to shoulder with them,” until the realisation of their legitimate and inalienable right to self-determination.

PM Imran further urged the international community to play their role in “pressing India to stop forthwith its human rights violations in IIOJK”, and let Kashmiris decide their own future in accordance with the UNSC resolutions.

Pakistan marked October 27 as the “Black Day” to express solidarity with the oppressed people of IIOJK and highlight their decades-long miseries at the hands of the Indian security forces.

A number of activities including rallies and different events have been planned for the day to shake the conscience of the international community, especially the United Nations urging it to play its due role in providing Kashmiris with their legitimate right to self-determination.

Banners, inscribed with the Black Day messages and pictures of prominent Kashmiri leaders, have been placed on key junctions and roads of the federal capital to exhibit unity with the people of Kashmir.
