Black day of Kashmir
27th of October is observed as the Black Day. During this day India had invaded the disputed Jammu and Kashmir back in 1947.Alastair Lamb, in his book “Incomplete Partition: The genesis regarding the Kashmir dispute 1947-1948, have written that, “According to Wolpert, VP Menon returned to Delhi from Srinagar on the morning of Oct 26 with no signed Instrument of Accession.
Only after the Indian troops had started landing at Srinagar airfield on the morning of Oct 27 did VP Menon and MC Mahajan set out from Delhi for Jammu. The Instrument of Accession, according to Wolpert, was only signed by Maharaja Sir Hari Singh [if signed at all] after Indian troops had assumed control of the Jammu and Kashmir State’s summer capital, Srinagar.”
The Lamb regards the so-called instrument of Accession which was signed by the “Maharaja”, of Kashmir on the 26th of October, 1947 as fraudulent. He mentioned in an argument that the Maharaja had been travelling by the road to Jammu, which was over a distance of about 350 KMS.
Furthermore, ahead of this day, Public gatherings, rallies, walks and protest demonstrations would be arranged at district and tehsil levels across the country, including AJK and G-B following all Covid-19 measures, the spokesperson said.
