On 5th August 2019, India violated every single point on human rights charters by declaring illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir as a federal territory, ending its special status by revoking Article 370.
Kashmir has been cut off from the rest of the world for one year now after the barbaric military siege by the Indian Army. The illegal step was taken by the Modi-led government to change the demographics of the region through ethnic cleansing.
The issue has been highlighted at every stage, however, it hasn’t borne any fruit until now. The day is being observed as a black day in Pakistan and Twitter is full of messages of solidarity for the Kashmiri brothers and sisters whose voices have been muted.
A number of hashtags including #5thAugustBlackDay, #KashmirWantsFreedom, #5thAugKashmirIstehsalDay, #KashmirSeigeDay, and #KashmiriLivesMatter are trending on Twitter to highlight the atrocities of the Indian Army in the occupied region.
Let’s have a look at how Pakistanis are sharing their love for the Kashmiris:

Like a thief in the night, the scrapping of Article 370 needed the cover of curfew. And now that a year has passed, the thief needs the cover of curfew for the anniversary of his theft. They call this integration, they call this democracy.#KashmirLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/SrbsnLbdit
