The events will be held in a novel way, aimed at highlighting the facade behind the so-called emerging Indian democracy in Delhi that demolished Kashmir’s special status on the 5th. August 2019.
Indian forces had released the worst human rights abuses and resultant violence against innocent Kashmiri people, holding about eight million people under military siege.
A minute of silence was observed at 10:00 am across the country. Solidarity walks are being held at Islamabad, Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, and four provincial headquarters.
The Pakistan government has announced a national holiday today (5 Feb, 2021).
