MIRPUR: In Azad Jammu and Kashmir, people on Wednesday observed India’s Independence Day as a black day to register strong protest against continued forced illegal occupation of a large part of Jammu and Kashmir State by India.

The Indian Independence Day was marked with protest rallies in all small and major towns across the liberated territory. Addressing these rallies speakers vehemently condemned the frequent incidents of unprovoked firing by the Indian troops on the line of control and the working boundary by the Indian army targeting the civilian population dwelling at the forward areas.

People from diverse segments of the civil society including social, political and other public representative organisation attended the rallies held in the capital city of Muzaffarabad as well as all other nine district headquarters of Mirpur, Kotli, Bagh, Rawalakot, Bhimbher, Neelam valley, Jhelum valley, Haveili, Sudhanoti and other small and major towns across AJK.

    Thanks for remembering India. You can love india or hate india. But this is not going to affect what India does and India has its own way of thinking. So, useless criticisms are always ignored or consigned to the dustbin.Recommend
