Pakistan embassy in Kabul observes ‘Kashmir Black Day’

The Pakistan embassy in Kabul commemorated “the Kashmir Black Day” on Friday, honoring the resilience of the people of Jammu and Kashmir “in their resistance against Indian occupation,” as stated in an embassy press release.

During the event, Pakistan’s charge d’affaires, Ubaid Ur Rehman Nizamani, reiterated the country’s steadfast diplomatic, moral, and political support for Kashmiris in their just pursuit of the right to self-determination, according to the statement.

“Kashmir Black Day” is an annual occasion dedicated to expressing solidarity with the Kashmiri people in their ongoing struggle for the right to self-determination.

On 27 October 1947, Indian troops landed in Srinagar to fight against separatists who wanted independence from India. The Indian troops waited till the Instrument of Accession (Jammu and Kashmir) was signed by the then ruler Hari Singh of the princely state of Kashmir a day earlier.
