Islamabad, 20 July: Pakistan Peoples Party observes Black Day to show solidarity with the people of Kashmir against the on-going Indian oppression in the valley
In a statement issued here, Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party said that, “Pakistan Peoples party not only values the Kashmir cause but also, it is a part of the struggle for the freedom and shall continue to struggle like our martyred leaders unless the goal is achieved.”
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari wore the black arm band to observe Black Day in protest against the Indian oppression in the valley and showed solidarity with the people of Kashmir.
Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party also criticized PMLN government over the announcement to observe July 19 as Black Day which is actually marked as a day of celebrations by the Kashmiris on both sides of the border. He said that the “Government of Pakistan is in a state of bewilderment under the pressure mounting because of Azad Kashmir Elections as well as Panama Scandal. Out of confusion, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is making illogical decisions.”
Government of Pakistan first announced 19 July as Black Day and then postponed it to the other day due to the mounting pressure by Pakistan Peoples Party and the people of Kashmir.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further said that, “Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif seems to be unaware of the historically significant day and his unaware political aides have caused further embarrassment to the Prime Minister, giving out an impression that Prime Minister is ignorant about the history of his own country.”
