Youm Istehsaal is observed to express solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK).
This day also highlights the extreme human rights violations committed by India in IIOJK. It will be commemorated on the completion of 3 years of the military siege of Kashmiris by the Indian military.
Expression of Solidarity
To commemorate Youm-e-Istehsal and show support for the oppressed Kashmiri people, the government has organized several events. Events include conferences and seminars.
The entire nation will carry out rallies in different parts of the country, with active involvement from people from all walks of life. The entire country would convey support to their Kashmiri brothers and sisters through different activities.
Pakistanis support their fight for independence and against the atrocities carried out by Indian forces at all times. On this day, the activists of all the political parties in the nation publicly denounce the Indian state terrorism.
They condemn the violence perpetrated on the defenseless and unarmed citizens of IIOJK through demonstrations and other events.
Additionally, the civil society organizations will host seminars and other events to draw attention to egregious human rights abuses against the Kashmiri people.
Everywhere throughout the nation, people will observe a moment of silence to pay tribute to the victims of violence. During the moment of silence, all the traffic will stop, and sirens will sound for a minute.
After that, the national anthems of Pakistan and the Islamic Republic of Kashmir (AJK) will play on radio, television, and print media.
The fascist Indian government under PM Modi abolished Kashmir’s special status on August 5, 2019, and launched a military siege. This day condemns the vicious actions of the Modi regime in IIOJK.
