Moulvi Bashir Ahmad Irfani, General Secretary of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, has said that Kashmiris will observe August 5 as a Black Day in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to send a clear message to India that New Delhi is an illegal occupier in the territory, and Kashmiris reject its illegal occupation of their homeland.

Moulvi Bashir Ahmad Irfani in a statement issued in Srinagar said that on August 5 is the blackest chapter in the history of Jammu and Kashmir. It is a very painful and gruesome day when Modi government humiliated the entire humanity by snatching all the basic human, political, social and religious rights of Kashmiris.

He said that since August 5, 2019, the Modi government committed such barbaric atrocities on innocent Kashmiris that are unprecedented in history.

Moulvi Bashir Irfani said that the worst crackdown on the media in the occupied territory is going on, and no one is allowed to report the atrocities of the Indian army. Anyone who dares to report is imprisoned under black laws like the Armed Forces Special Powers Act. He said the Modi government is using notorious agencies NIA and SIA to terrorize Kashmiris, confiscate their lands and properties and demolish houses.

At the same time, a large number of Kashmiris have been dismissed from government jobs, he said and added that the Modi government is changing the Muslim majority status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir. He appealed to the entire Kashmiri people to observe 5th August as Black Day to make it clear to India that they will not give up struggle for inalienable right to self-determination.

Hurriyat organizations including Tehreek-e-Istehkam Jammu and Kashmir, Muslim Conference, Jammu and Kashmir Political Resistance Movement, Shabab Muslimeen and Al Falah Party in their statements in Srinagar said that August 5 is grim reminder of the day when India abolished the special status of the occupied territory. The statements said that the Modi government was paving the way for non-locals to settle in occupied Kashmir.
