Islamabad, August 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): Nation is observing the 73rd Independence Day, today, as Kashmir Solidarity Day to express full support to the Kashmiri brethren reeling under renewed Indian repression.
Protest rallies are be held in all small and major cities of the country and seminars are being organized to highlight the plight of oppressed people in occupied Kashmir.
The government had decided to celebrate the Independence Day to express solidarity with people of occupied Kashmir and entire nation in unified voice has reiterated moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri brethren.
The government of Pakistan had decided to observe Independence Day on August 14 as Kashmir Solidarity Day and August 15 as Black Day to express solidarity with Kashmiris in their recent miseries caused by the Indian government.
The government of Pakistan has revealed a special logo for the Independence Day reflecting the theme “Kashmir banega Pakistan”. The logo has been created to express solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir after BJP-led Indian government stripped the territory of its special status with the revocation of Article 370. The logo unveiled is based on “Kashmir banega Pakistan” theme. Word Kashmir, written in red colour, represents sacrifices rendered during the freedom struggle. Pakistan’s flag represents Pakistanis’ resolve to go to any extent for occupied Kashmir’s freedom while the red border around the logo highlights India’s illegal occupation and atrocities it is committing in the valley.
The national flag would be flown half-mast throughout the country on Thursday August 15, said a notification issued by the Ministry of Interior on Friday. The flag of Azad Jammu Kashmir has been hoisted along with the National flag on all important buildings to express oneness with the Kashmiris.
