RAWLAKOT: Former President and Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir Sardar Yaqoob Khan said that August 5 is the darkest day in the history of Kashmir. On August 5, Kashmiris around the world should unite and send a message to India that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will not accept Indian domination under any circumstances. International bodies including the United Nations should take notice of Indian actions and atrocities in occupied Kashmir and give Kashmiris the right to self-determination. He said that the government of Pakistan is an important in the Kashmir issue, and is distorting the facts by turning its back on India. Now institutions like the United Nations and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) have to fulfill their responsibility and give the Kashmiri people the right to self-determination, without which peace in the region is not possible. He added, that the August 5 action by India is a plan to overthrow the state of Jammu and Kashmir and turn Occupied Kashmir into a Hindu majority, keeping the people of Occupied Kashmir under curfew and lockdown for over a year and genocide of the youth being a silent spectator of the world is the indifference and double standard of the international community. The sacrifices of the people of Occupied Kashmir will not be spared for the accession of Pakistan. The blood of Kashmiri martyrs will not be spared. The history of the sacrifices made by the Kashmiri people is an example that Kashmir is a flash point of South Asia, without resolving this issue peace cannot be established.
