Aasiya Andrabi urges Pakistan to observe Black Day against Indian atrocities in IoK


Asiya Andrabi, the chairperson of Dukhtran-e-Millat, an organisation of Kashmiri women seeking independence from Indian occupation, has urged Pakistan to observe Black Day to condemn the bloodbath by Indian occupant forces in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) which left 17 youth martyred in the valley on Sunday.

In a recorded voice message on social media, Asiya Andrabi asked Pakistan to observe Black Day against the Indian aggression targeting pro-freedom Kashmiri youth.

“Please tell them (Pakistan) to at least observe Black Day in solidarity with the Muslims of Kashmir, the entire Kashmir is bleeding. Even at this moment, while we are counting the bodies, pro-Pakistani songs are being played in mosques and loudspeakers. The people of Kashmir are seeking your support,” said the veteran pro-freedom activist.

Andrabi, while crying, questioned to what extent the Kashmiris would keep sacrificing for freedom.

“You know what songs are being played in the mosques of Kashmir? We will fight and save Pakistan under this flag. But our Pakistan is silent. Please convey this message to the masses in whatever way is possible,” concluded Ms Andrabi.

While the politicians, media and the general public of Pakistan condemned the Indian atrocities in statements and over social media, the pronouncement of Black Day by Pakistanis to show solidarity with their Kashmiri brethren is yet to come.
