Kashmiris are observing Jammu Martyrs’ Day today on both sides of Line of Control (LoC) and over the world.

The forces of Maharaja Hari Singh, Indian army and Hindu extremists in different parts of the Jammu region massacred thousands of Kashmiris while they were migrating to Pakistan during the first week of November in 1947.

President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Sardar Masood Khan said in his message that the savagery and brutality demonstrated on this day by the savage Hindus and Maharaja forces gave a new impetus to Kashmir’s liberation struggle.

He further added that Jammu Martyrs Day is commemorated every year with a renewed resolve that the mission for which Jammu martyrs had laid their lives would be completed at all costs.

Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Raja Farooq Haider Khan said in his message that the torch lighted by martyrs would never be let to be put off. His government’s resolve that people of Azad Kashmir would never lag behind in the struggle for Kashmir liberation however big sacrifices they might have to offer.
