If there is one country that cares about Human Rights on an international level, its Pakistan. Be it in its own country or in any other Muslim state. Pakistan has never limited itself from speaking up against human rights violation. Now that its happening right across the border, involving Kashmiris, people of its own nation. How could Pakistan stay quiet? So, the country is doing everything in its power to express solidarity with Kashmiris. Today on 15 August Black Day is observed in Pakistan in support of the disputed state.
This day is being observed as a protest to the illegal annexation of New Delhi on Jammu and Kashmir. India has been imposing brutality on the Muslims of Indian Occupied Kashmir for a long time. The Kashmiris have been oppressed and killed. No voice had been raised for Kashmir internationally. But now Pakistan is trying to draw international attention towards the unresolved matter.
Black flags will be raised in the rallies and half-mast on the day of India’s independence. Also, along the LoC and across Kashmir. This would be an indication of 15 august black day that is being observed in the country. Pakistan also celebrated its own independence day on 14th august in solidarity with Kashmiris. The nation which has been a subject to the aristocracies and brutalities of Indian paramilitary for decades.
Pakistan is making efforts to unveil India’s illegal moves to change the demography of Indian Occupied Kashmir. Dissolution of Article 370 of India’s constitution would mean Indians from other regions would be able to buy land in Kashmir. And Kashmiris would not have a say in any bill that the government passes in this state. This would take away the autonomous state of Kashmir. Meanwhile, paramilitary killing Muslims brutally in Kashmir could only mean one thing, ethnic cleansing.
Recently, Pakistan has had a major diplomatic win. As the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) announced a meeting on Friday. This meeting would aim to discuss the matter of Jammu and Kashmir. Whether India is to revoke article 370 or not. It is being held in response to the letter written by Pakistan to the UN. As China and Russia backed Pakistan to request for this meeting.
