The Embassy of Pakistan, Czech Republic hosted an event to commemorate Kashmir Black Day.
On 27th of October 1947, India forcefully occupied Jammu & Kashmir against the wishes of the Kashmiri people. The event was aimed to shed light on the harsh actions of India in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) since 1947. Attendees included Pakistanis living in the Czech Republic, including students and individuals of Kashmiri descent.
The event commenced with the recitation of the Holy Quran. Messages from the President and Prime Minister were read to the audience, followed by a documentary highlighting Indian atrocities.
Ambassador Ayesha Ali, in her address, referred to Kashmir Black Day as a dark chapter in Kashmir’s history. She pointed out that 76 years ago, India, in violation of international laws and conventions, deployed its troops in Srinagar based on a fraudulent instrument of accession. The Ambassador emphasized Pakistan’s unwavering stance on the Kashmir dispute and affirmed that the Pakistani government would continue to provide moral, political, and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people in IIOJ&K until they achieve their legitimate right to self-determination.
During the event, the Pakistani community was also informed about the Embassy’s efforts to engage with Czech leadership, senior officials, think tanks, academia and the diplomatic community in Prague. The goal was to raise awareness about the severe human rights violations in IIOJ&K, India’s continued violation of UNSC resolutions on Jammu & Kashmir and its denial of the right of self-determination to the people of IIOJ&K.
