Kashmiries’ black day observed in Kathmandu
On 27 October 2017, Embassy of Pakistan, Kathmandu organized a talk programme on the “Resolution of Jammu and Kashmir Dispute: An Imperative for Regional Peace and Development”. The programme was well attended by wide segment of Nepalese society including intellectuals, think thanks, media persons and civil society. 27 October is observed as Black Day by Kashmiries to condemn the unlawful landing of Indian troops in occupied Jammu and Kashmir on 27 October 1947. Since then, India has been illegally occupying the state of Jammu and Kashmir against the wishes of its people and in utter violation of UN Security Council resolutions. Kashmiries are also facing grave human rights violations as India is trying to silence their voice for the right of self- determination with use of excessive force and brutal means. Speakers in their talk emphasized that resolution of Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the wishes of people of Jammu and Kashmir is imperative for regional peace and development.
