History of Kashmir Solidarity Day 5 Feb
Acclaimed for its striking beauty, Kashmir lies in the northmost part of the Indian sub-continent, edged by the chain. At the time of the partition of India, the region was a princely state under the British Raj. The state was divided into three, now composed of India (Jammu and Kashmir), Pakistan (Azad Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan), and China.
The distribution of Kashmir between India and Pakistan has led to enmity and bloodbath with three wars between India and Pakistan over the region – in 1947, 1965, and 1999.
Pakistan acknowledges the issue of control of Kashmir as the inner issue between India and Pakistan, which has led to three wars and means that Pakistan feels they need to devote a valid portion of their national income to military budgets.
A non-working day to highlight the issue of Kashmir was first recommended by Qazi Hussain Ahmad of the Jamaat-e-Islami party in 1990. The idea was backed by Nawaz Sharif, Punjab’s Chief Minister at the time, and the Prime Minister at the time, Benazir Bhutto. The Pakistan People’s Party then declared February 5th as a public holiday.
On Kashmir Day, all government, semi-government and private offices across Pakistan will remain closed. The State Bank of Pakistan will also remain closed.
The day is marked by political assemblies, marches, and speeches about Kashmir. A human chain is formed on the major route from Pakistan to Kashmir.
A one-minute silence is observed at 10 am local time in praise of the dead. Radio Pakistan telecast a special endurance run transmission focusing on different aspects of the Kashmir brawl.
Pakistan’s solidarity with Kashmiris will continue until Kashmiris manage their inalienable right to self-determination as dedicated in the UN Charter and correlated UN Security Council dedication.
Pakistan stands with Kashmir
The whole Pakistani nation stands with them in their struggle to secure their basic or natural right to self-assurance.
Qureshi expressed deep concern over the military siege of millions of Kashmiris for the last 18 months. Under the suffocating military siege and in the face of burglary COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian army has continued pin-and-search operations, staged ‘fake interviews’, and honored in a killing spree of Kashmiri youth thus further escalating the grave humanitarian tragedy there.
Shehryar Khan Afridi, who leads Pakistan’s National Assembly Kashmir Committee, said the country stands for peace in the region, but he warned that in the event of any misadventure by India, there will be punishment.
Pakistan wants peace in the region and is ready to move forward if the wishes and aspirations of Kashmiri people are recognized according to resolutions,” Afridi said in a separate official statement.
“Our efforts for peace, however, shouldn’t be taken as weakness. Any misadventure by the enemy would be responded with full force
Kashmir, a Muslim-majority region, is held by India and Pakistan in parts but accused by both in full. A small sliver of the region is also controlled by China.
Since they were apart in 1947, New Delhi and Islamabad have fought three wars — in 1948, 1965, and 1971 — two of them over Kashmir.
Some Kashmiri groups have been fighting against Indian rule for aptitude, or for unification with neighboring Pakistan.
Already strained relations between the two neighbors have further plummeted after India scrapped the limited autonomy of the Jammu and Kashmir region on Aug. 5, 2019. It was also split into two federally administered territories.
The Sindh government has announced that February 5 (Friday) will be a public holiday across the province, a notification issued in this regard said Monday.
In Pakistan, on Feb 5 every year, Kashmir Solidarity Day is observed to convey a message of solidarity and support to the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (UK).
