Chicago, 5 August 2022 (TDI): Pakistanis around the globe observed “Youm-e-Istehsal” today. Keeping this in view, Pakistan’s Embassies in the United States (US) also commemorated the day.


Pakistan announced that it will observe Youm-e-Istehsal on 5th August. The purpose of this day is to mark the third year of the Indian military siege in Kashmir.

India has illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir by immoral and unconstitutional means. Kashmir has been a land of dispute between India and Pakistan since both countries’ independence.

Both countries claim their authority on land but recently, India has illegally made the land of Jammu and Kashmir their part and is administering a military lockdown in the seized area.

The purpose of this day is also to show the Kashmiri brothers that Pakistan stands with them in their fight for freedom and independence.

Moreover, it will also bring the attention of international countries to the atrocities Indian forces are committing on the land.
