Jammu Martyrs Day is being observed today with the appropriate solemnity and respect to remember the heroic sacrifices made by the Muslim residents of Jammu city on this day in 1947 while emigrating to their then-newly-carved country Pakistan.
In the first and second weeks of November 1947, the tyrant Dogra ruler’s force, gangsters, and armed Hindu fanatics planned and carried out a week-long cruel genocide that resulted in the ruthless murder of at least 0.7 million Muslim residents of Jammu city and surrounding areas.
On November 6, 1947, the Dogra soldiers and its armed gangsters martyred 2.50 Muslim detainees of Jammu City and the surrounding areas as they attempted to migrate to the nearby Sialkot city of the newly-born separate homeland of the Muslims of the subcontinent, Pakistan.
This year, too, Jammu Martyrs Day is being observed at a time when Kashmir freedom has reached its pinnacle as a result of the massive ongoing anti-India protests by the people of the bleeding Indian-occupied state of Jammu and Kashmir state for the last over three years, with information and communication completely blocked by the Indian occupational forces – since enraged Kashmiris were consistently adamant to fully reject and resist the forced August 5, 2019 Indian sinister act.
The day is observed annually by the people of Kashmir in remembrance of the tremendous sacrifices made by over 2.50 lakh Muslims living in Jammu, including men, women, children, and elderly people, who were brutally murdered by armed Hindu gangsters near the Jammu-Sialkot working border as part of a sinister pre-planned plot to emigrate to their beloved homeland Pakistan. As in previous years, the commemoration of Martyrs’ Day will include a reaffirmation of the commitment to carry on Kashmiri Martyrs’ duty to bring the Kashmir liberation movement to its logical end.
People In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir are facing unprecedented brutality at the hands of ruthless Indian Forces. The silence of International community on this barbaric treatment of poor people in IIOJ&K is condemnable. The world must speak against the violence of Indian authorities.
