Srinagar: Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world will observe Indian Republic Day, tomorrow, as Black Day in protest against India’s continued denial of Kashmiris’ right to self-determination.
The day will be marked with a complete strike in occupied Kashmir and anti-India demonstrations and rallies in world capitals.
The Joint Resistance Leadership in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, urged people to hold peaceful demonstrations and rallies across the length and breadth of the territory after Friday prayers, tomorrow.
On the other hand, the puppet authorities have put the entire occupied Kashmir under siege to ensure smooth conduct of Republic Day.
At least five rounds of funeral prayers were held for each of the two martyred youth, Shakir Ahmad Mir and Sameer Wani at their ancestral villages in Shopian district. Seventeen-year-old Shakir Mir along with two other youth Sameer Wani and Firdous Ahmad were martyred by troops during a siege and search operation at Chaigund in Shopian district, yesterday.
Complete shutdown was observed in twin districts of Shopian and Pulwama over the killings of youths.
Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik in their joint statement paid glowing tributes to the martyred youth.
