Indian Independence Day was observed as Black Day across Pakistan and on both sides of the Line of Control on Thursday (August 15).
The Black Day was observed in protest against the Indian unilateral action to change the disputed status of occupied Kashmir. Black flags was hoisted on roof tops and vehicles across Pakistan and Azad Kashmir to symbolize rejection for Indian nefarious designs.
Protest rallies were taken out in all small and major cities of the country and seminars were organized to highlight plight of oppressed Kashmiris who are being subjected to unprecedented persecution over the last ten days.
