BEIJING, 28 Oct 2021 : Pakistan’s Ambassador to China, Moin ul Haque on Thursday paid tribute to the struggle of the people of Jammu & Kashmir against Indian occupation and said despite endless atrocities of the Indian forces against innocent Kashmiris it had failed to break their resolve.

Speaking on the occasion of ‘Kashmir Black Day’ observed with solemnity at the Embassy of Pakistan here, he said that Indian repression in the Occupied Kashmir had especially become more intensified and horrifying levels after the August 2019’s illegal and unilateral actions of the Indian occupation authorities.

He said that Kashmiris’ call for freedom was not merely for a piece of territory. It was a classic struggle by the oppressed people against an aggressor for a larger cause of human dignity and freedom.

Since then the entire illegally occupied territory of Kashmir had been under siege, their leadership incarcerated and their youth targeted in staged search operations. Jammu & Kashmir has become the most militarized zones in the world yet the Kashmiri freedom struggle has continued unwavered.

On this day in 1947, Indian forces unlawfully had entered Jammu and Kashmir, commencing the dark era of illegal Indian occupation that continues till date.
