Indian soldiery martyrs another youth in IIOJK

Tuesday – October 27, 2020
SRINAGAR (India): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), the Indian troops in their fresh act of State terrorism martyred a Kashmiri youth, Monday, in Pulwama district.

According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS), the youth was killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation (CASO) in Noorpora area of Tral in the district.

The operation was going on till last reports came in.

Separately, an Indian soldier who fired at himself with his service rifle on October 12 succumbed to his injuries at Sri Maharaja Hari Singh (SMHS) hospital in Srinagar.

The deceased soldier belonged to D-Coy 141 battalion of the central reserve police force (CRPF) in Shergari of Srinagar.

Confirming the incident, a CRPF official said that an investigation has begun to find out the reason as to what forced the trooper to take the extreme step.

This incident raised the number of such deaths among Indian troops and police personnel in the IIOJK to 479 since January 2007.

Meanwhile, two persons were dead and three were injured when a Maruti Alto car rolled down into a deep gorge at Mansar Morh near Krimchi in Udhampur.

Police and locals rushed to the spot and took the injured persons to district hospital Udhampur.

Meanwhile, local police foiled the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) - Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) plan to hoist Indian flag in Srinagar ahead of October 27, which is observed as black day in the occupied territory.

Police arrested three BJP workers who were trying to hoist Indian flag on clock tower at Lal Chowk in Srinagar.

Pertinently, police on Sunday also foiled two separate attempts made by members of Hindu extremist members to hoist the Indian flag at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) headquarters in Gandhinagar in Jammu.

The attempts to hoist the flag came two days after PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said she will not contest elections or hoist the Indian flag till Jammu and Kashmir’s special status under Article 370 is restored.

October 27 is the day when India landed its forces in the present-day IIOJK against the aspirations of the Kashmiri people and in total disregard to the partition plan of the sub continent and international norms and ethics.

An analytical report released by KMS in connection with the October 27, which is observed by the Kashmiris on both sides of the line of control (LoC) and wherever they live in the world as Black Day and the day of mourning because sufferings of the Kashmir’s inhabitants multiplied with the landing of Indian troops in the territory on this day in 1947.

The report maintained that the Kashmiris who deem 27th of Oct as the darkest chapter in the IIOJK history also observe it as Black Day to convey to India that they reject its illegal occupation of their homeland.

Besides, the aim of observing October 27 as black day is to remind the world of its commitments viz-a-viz Kashmir as United Nations (UN) resolutions uphold the Kashmiris’ right to decide their future through plebiscite.

However, the report deplored that for over 7 decades now, India has been flouting UN resolutions by continuing with its illegal occupation over IIOJK.

“The use of coercion and brutal suppression as means by India to crush the will of Kashmiris warrants the intervention by the United Nations to resolve the Kashmir dispute and stop bloodshed in the territory,” KMS report stressed.

Like Pakistan, the world community should also stand by the valiant people of Kashmir in realisation of their right to self-determination as acknowledged by the UN security council.

Pakistani nation observes Oct 27 as black day to express solidarity with their Kashmiri brethren and its unflinching support to the just cause of Kashmiris has been morale booster for them, KMS report concluded.
