Youm-e-Shuhada-e-Jammu is being observed by the Kashmiris of both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) and around the world today (Wednesday).
On this day, thousands of the innocent Kashmiris were massacred by the brutal forces of Maharaja Hari Singh, Indian army and other groups of the Hindu extremists in the different parts of the Jammu region.
The innocent people lost their lives while they were migrating to Pakistan during the first week of November in 1947 after independence.
President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan and Farooq Haider Khan—the Prime Minister said that the first week of November was the bleakest chapter of the liberation struggle of Kashmir when the ruler in Jammu shed the blood of the innocent Muslims on November 6, 1947.
AJK President Sardar Masood Khan, in his message, said that the brutal killings of the innocent Muslims by the savage Hindus and Maharaja Forces gave a new impetus to the liberation struggle of Kashmir.
On the other hand, Prime Minister of AJK Raja Farooq Haider Khan vowed that the torch lighted by martyrs would never be let to be put off.
