It was on 5th January in 1949 when the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution supporting the Kashmiris’ right to decide their future by themselves through UN-sponsored plebiscite.
The day will be marked by various activities including rallies, seminars, and conferences across the world to remind the UN that it must implement its resolutions to settle the Kashmir dispute to save the Kashmiris from the Indian brutalities.
This year, the day is being observed when occupied Kashmir is under military siege for the past over 150 days.
