Rawalakot [Pakistan-occupied Kashmir], Oct. 23 : Jammu Kashmir National Students Federation president Sardar Talhah has highlighted the atrocities committed by the Pakistani Army on the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
"In 1947, just months after partition, Pakistani forces, assisted by tribals, attacked the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir and indulged in plunder and the killing of innocents on an unprecedented level," he said.
The Pakistani Army, on October 22, 1947, some of them disguised as tribal invaders, attacked Jammu and Kashmir, killing thousands of people.
Kashmiris across PoK are observing the day by demanding immediate withdrawal of the Pakistani forces from their territory.
The tribals, known as Kabailies, were employed by Pakistan with a conspiracy to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir by executing genocide on the people.
It was an attack by Pakistani Pathans on the Kashmiri people. "Thousands of people were killed, women were raped, young women were abducted and their whereabouts are still not known.
To mark the day, a series of demonstrations and seminars are being held across PoK and other parts of the world," he added.
