The Islamia University of Bahawalpur (IUB) observed Black Day to show solidarity with Kashmiris. On this occasion, special events, walk and photo contests were organized in all campuses against the right of self-determination of Kashmiris and the usurpation of occupied Kashmir by India.

The participants said that it is difficult to find an example of the oppression and cruelty shown to the people of Kashmir in the history of the world. 27 October 1947 has become a black day in history when Indian troops illegally landed in Kashmir. From that day, the freedom struggle began and till today the fourth generation of Kashmiris is fighting for their freedom. The Indian government abolished the special status of occupied Kashmir and destroyed the identity of Kashmiris and divided the region into different parts.

In this regard, the Department of Pakistan Studies organized a special seminar. Dean Faculty of Law Prof Dr Aftab Hussain Gillani and other teachers said that the hearts of Pakistanis beat with Kashmiris. Quaid-e-Azam had said that Kashmir is the artery of Pakistan. Pakistan blatantly presented Kashmir as a global problem, as a result of which the Indian government became a victim of panic and increased oppression and violence against Kashmiris. The day is not far when Kashmiris will breathe the air of freedom.
