The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) released a new song on Sunday for Youm-e-Istehsal in solidarity with the Kashmiris, marking a year since the Modi government launched demographic apartheid in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJ&K) and divided the region into three parts.
In a tweet, Director-General ISPR Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar shared the song and said it is a tribute to the brave people of Kashmir and their relentless struggle for freedom.
The title of the song is ‘Ja Chor Day Meri Waadi’ (Leave my Valley) and begins with the sound of a clock, reminiscent of the last 365 days of immense difficulties and pain the Kashmiris have experienced under military seige.
In the last 365 days, the Kashmiris have faced the worst state terrorism and lockdown.
Earlier, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Youm-e-Istehsal will be observed on August 5 in solidarity with the people of IIOJ&K.
“The Indian government tried to divide the Kashmiri people through this illegal act,” he wrote.
The illegal actions of August 5 were aimed at ending the Muslim identity of the Kashmiri people in IIOJ&K. India is also divided on the steps taken on August 5, Qureshi said, reminding that the people of Kashmir rejected the move by India.
