Kashmir solidarity day


The feelings while talking about Kashmir Solidarity day is quite difficult to put in words. It was first observed in 1990. This day marks the commemoration of the sacrifices by the people of Kashmir. They are suffering since decades long. After abrogation of Article 370 in the occupied valley, the Kashmir Day is more relevant, significant and forceful than ever before. Things are changing now and world is now more aware. The atrocities on the people of Kashmir by India and the diplomatic stance of Pakistan is very much evident. In the light of international law and statutes of liberty, freedom and human rights whatever is happening in IOK is highly alarming. On August 5, 2019, by a Presidential Decree, the government of Narendra Modi unveiled its violent agenda against people of Kashmir through state terrorism. The autonomy and special status of Jammu and Kashmir were abolished.
Fearing a strong backlash from inside and outside India, Modi Government decided to lockdown and blackout the whole region. Media representatives were removed, accesses to Internet and telephone were blocked and basic rights were suspended in the name of re-organization of the administrative structure of the state. This was not merely the case. Over 900,000 additional troops have been deployed to completely ransack a population of over 8 million. In such situation , PM Imran Khan and the people of Pakistan became voice of the voiceless. It is indeed the high time to resolve this longstanding dispute which further can create so many issues if unresolved. Unfortunately, the Indian Government is spreading hatred and agenda of Hindutva under Modi’s regime. Extremist Hindu party, whose founding member Sarvarkar used to idealise Adolf Hitler, is now in control of BJP and the government of India. Few of the acts clearly shows the intentions of the Indian Government as well as judiciary. After the revocation of Article 370 in August 2019, the Supreme Court of India gave no clear verdict on over 140 petitions submitted to review the status of Jammu and Kashmir. Later on, in November, the Supreme Court gave a verdict allowing the construction of a temple on the ruins of Babri Masjid. It seems that the secularism and rule of law in India have lost their meaning. In December, 2019, the Modi Government unleashed the most aggressive legislation aimed at Muslims of not just Kashmir but India as a whole with the Citizenship Act, which specifically targets Muslims to be non-citizens if they have moved into India even in the last 50 years. solidarity day is an emblom of what all the people of Pakistan are feeling for their Kashmiri brethren.
