“It is a historical day that symbolizes the dawn of hope, travel struggle, unparalleled sacrifices of our Kashmiri brothers and sisters to achieve the right to self-determination,” he said. “The perseverance and sacrifices of the people of Jammu and Kashmir will surely yield success and will restore their freedom and denied rights”, he added.
