Eid observed in OSJK with pledge to continue freedom struggle

Srinagar, MTT News Desk: In Occupied State of Jammu & Kashmir (OSJK), people observed Eid-ul-Azha, on Saturday, the 27th October, with traditional zeal and religious fervour, reaffirming their resolve to continue liberation struggle till it reaches its logical conclusion.

Thousands of Muslims offered Eid prayers at various Eidgahs and Mosques of the occupied territory.

The largest congregation was held at Eidgah in Srinagar where a resolution was passed demanding demilitarisation of Jammu and Kashmir as a prerequisite for settling the long-pending Kashmir issue.

Clashes also took place between protesters and Indian troops and police personnel after Eid prayers in Srinagar.

The Indian authorities had placed most of the top Hurriyet leaders including APHC Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani to prevent him from leading anti-India demonstrations to mark the 27th October, the day when Indian landed its troops on Srinagar airport, as Black Day after Eid prayers.

However, some Hurriyat leaders managed to reach Eidgah and got the resolution passed demanding withdrawal of troops as a precondition for settling the Kashmir issue.

The gathering demands that the process of troops withdrawal from Jammu and Kashmir is a prerequisite to create conducive conditions for the permanent solution to the vexed Kashmir dispute, the resolution said.

It was on the 27th October in 1947 when Indian troops landed in Srinagar and forcibly occupied Jammu and Kashmir in total disregard to the partition plan of the Subcontinent and the Kashmiris aspirations.
