“Yar, Allah ka shukar kal chutti hai”
Yeah! but have you ever wondered why chutti hai? what’s the point of Kashmir day, why do all Pakistanis get an entire day off on 5th February? Well, they don’t really care why, all they care about is “Kay kal Chutti hai”
The real reason why we have Kashmir day is in observance of Pakistan’s support of and unity with the people of Indian-administered Kashmir, the nationalists efforts to separate from India, and to pay homage to Kashmiris who have lost their lives in the conflict.
This is why we have Kashmir day… not so you can watch a movie and sleep at home!
It is to show solidarity with the people of Kashmir, who are persecuted on a daily basis, who do not get to speak out for their freedom, who do not get to live there life with security of religion or person…
Protests like these are met with tear gas and police brutality, the people of Kashmir want us to truly help them, not to have a day of relaxation at their expense!
Jammu and Kashmir is the only Muslim majority state in Indian occupied territory and hundreds of thousands of muslim Kashmiris have lost their lives just trying to ask for their freedom, to choose which country they want to belong to
“They beg and plead to be a part of a country that we so easily take for granted”.
They Don’t See Sunni
They Don’t See Shia
All They See Is A Chance To Be Free
But Where Are Their Pakistani Brothers?
Well, the government is too busy filling their pockets, and the people….the people are too busy planning their day off.
“The one day we should show our solidarity, sympathy and support for our Muslim brothers we end up; watching movies, going out for dinners, hanging out with friends and have left our Kashmiri brother hung out to dry”
Stop Letting Their Blood Spill In Vain
What can you do except for blaming the government? Speak against it. Have an actual discussion on it with your friends. Ever questioned if becoming a part of Pakistan will actually help the Kashmiris or they should be recognized as a free state? No? Because we don’t care! Then we don’t deserve a holiday as well!
