Massive demonstrations were held across Pakistan-occupied Kashmir on October 22 to mark ‘Black Day’. Despite use of brute force and heavy crackdown by Pakistani security forces, hundreds of agitated people took to the streets in Bhimber, Kotli, Muzaffarabad, Mirpur and other parts of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Angst by Pakistan’s oppression, angry members of the Jammu and Kashmir National Students Federation even attempted to cross over into the Indian Territory.

Mass arrests were made, batons charged and tear gas shells unleashed on peaceful protesters; besides, press was gagged and all attempts were made to muzzle the widespread protests. On this day in 1947, Pakistan had violated all international norms and had sent tribals to invade Kashmir, since then this day has been marked as Black Day every year.

PoK residents, who continue to live under Pakistan’s occupation, often use this day to highlight miseries and oppression they are undergoing under Pakistan’s occupation. “Pakistan talks about Srinagar and Delhi, but look what they have done here. There is no pond of milk and honey here in PoK,” said a leader of the National Student Federation here.

Venting anger against Islamabad, he further said, “We don’t believe in this kind of Azadi; Pakistan failed to resolve its own issues and it should first deal with terrorists, which it gave birth to. Look at Nawaz Sharif (Prime Minister) wherever he goes in the world, Raheel Sharif (Army Chief) follows him.” Protestors used the occasion for drawing attention to the plight of people and sorry state of democracy and freedom in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

    Still.. We are reaching mars, unlike you people not bothered about your growth.. Happy being called terrorist nation in US, Russia, UN and almost entire world. Happy killing people and living in denial. Dont you people feel that you should also be recognized as a successful country and not a ground for terrorism. What can be said, when people and not leaders are hate and war mongers!!

                I hope BBC, Washington Times and other like minded newscannels and newspapers report these. They take a pro approach. Also, an ostriche like approach of international insutions with self-love of USA has brought world to this precipice.

                      Our Kashmir brothers should open their eyes and see what is happening in not only POK but Baluchistan, Sindh, Khaibar Pakhthunwa etc. There is no freedom in stan which is effectively under military rule all these years. Except for Punjabis no body is happy there.

                          Kashmir is not a stani issue. Kashmir was an independent state until October 24 1947. On this day in 1947, stan had violated all international norms and had sent tribals to invade Kashmir, since then this day has been marked as Black Day every year. stan uses its brute force to thwart Black Day protests in PoK

                                    stan always keep on shouting from country to country and to UN that people of Indian kashmir should be given right of self determination/plebiscite. However, stani do not talk about Baluchistan, POK, Gilgit Baltistan and Sindh. Punjabi stani rule of stan should respect the feeling of the people of these areas and allow them to have a right of self determination.
