Genesis of the Solidarity Day

Kashmir Media Service, KMS News, www.kmsnews.org, Pakistan TV, States Times, HumQadam TV, Geo TV, ARY TVIndia has been subjecting the people of occupied Kashmir to the worst form of state terrorism since 1947 to suppress their struggle for securing their right to self-determination and to get rid of its illegal occupation. During all this period, Pakistan is the only country of the world that has extended all-out as well as unconditional support to the just cause of the Kashmiris.

The people of Indian occupied Kashmir intensified their liberation struggle in 1989, causing immense frustration to power corridors in India. In order to crush this mass uprising, New Delhi dismissed the government of Farooq Abdullah and imposed Governor’s Rule in occupied Kashmir, appointing Jagmohan Malhotra as the Governor of the occupied territory on January 19, 1990. Jagmohan, who was already notorious for his anti-Muslim bias and activities in India, immediately after assuming charge, ordered the Indian police and troops to deal with the freedom-seeking Kashmiri people strictly. The forces’ personnel unleashed a reign of terror across the occupied territory and on the night of January 20, they molested several women in Srinagar during house-to-house searches. The next morning as the people came to know about the molestation of the women, they took to the streets in the city in thousands to protest against the barbarity of the troops. »
