Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over will observe Right to Self-Determination Day on Thursday.

Call for observance of the day has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference.

Protest demonstrations, rallies, seminars and other programs will be held in Azad Kashmir, Pakistan and in all major capitals of the world to invite world attention towards the long-pending Kashmir dispute.

It was on January 5 in 1949 when UN Security Council passed a historic resolution that the question of accession of the State of Jammu and Kashmir to India or Pakistan will be decided through the democratic method of a free and impartial plebiscite.

The APHC in a statement issued in Srinagar asked the United Nations to implement its resolutions on Kashmir without further delay if it wants to restore its lost credibility.

Meanwhile, the disappearance of another innocent Kashmiri youth in the custody of Indian army prompted the family members and relatives to stage a protest demonstration in Kunanposhpora area of Kupwara, today.

The youth, Abdul Rasheed, was arrested by Indian army during a house raid in December 2022 and subjected to custodial disappearance.

It is believed that the army has killed him and is waiting for an appropriate time to show his body after a fake encounter as it has done in many cases in the past.
