India urged to resolve Kashmir dispute

Srinagar, October 25 (KMS): Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over will observe Black Day, on Monday, the 27th October, to convey to the world that India has occupied Jammu and Kashmir against their will and has been denying them their inalienable right to self-determination.

It was on 27th October in 1947 when Indian troops invaded Jammu and Kashmir and occupied it in total violation of the Partition Plan of the Subcontinent and against the aspirations of the Kashmiris.

The day will be marked with a complete shutdown in occupied Kashmir and rallies in world capitals. Call for the shutdown has been given by the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, other Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Muhammad Yasin Malik and supported by other pro-freedom organizations and the High Court Bar Association of the occupied territory. »

The APHC Chairman addressing a gathering at Charar-e-Sharief in Badgam said, “Kashmir is a political issue concerning aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and unfulfilled promises on the right to self-determination by Indian leadership. Ironically, India is using all means to dilute the Kashmir dispute by linking it with electoral and administrative issues.” »

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream / I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been / To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen / They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed…. –lyrics by Jimmy Page from the song Kashmir, performed by Led Zeppelin

Why, after 67 years of dispute, is the question of Kashmir, land of the “gentle race,” still lurking in the shadows of international relations, still unresolved, despite its seemingly relative unimportance to global interests in matters of resources and international trade? »
