History of Kashmir Solidarity Day
Kashmir is well known for its pleasing beauty in the most northern part of the Indian sub mainland. At the time of partition, Kashmir was divided into three regions which are now known as Jammu and Kashmir, in Indian territory. Azad Kashmir on Pakistan territory and Aksai Chin are in China territory.
Kashmir has always been a matter of conflict between Pakistan and India. There happened three wars between Pakistan and India in the conflict over Kashmir. Individually took place in 1947, 1965, and 1999.
Pakistan considers Kashmir issue a big issue between India and Pakistan. That is why Pakistan consigns a notable amount of money to military Pakistan. Pakistan acknowledges Azad Kashmir as a single state. It has its own parliament with a head of government.
Kashmir Solidarity Day was earliest advocated by Qazi Hussain Ahamed in 1990. He was from the Jamaat-e-Islami party of Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif, Punjab’s chief minister at that time supported this and called for a strike to protest against Indian occupied Kashmir and told people to pray for the success of the freedom movement of Kashmir. After that, the 5th of February was declared Kashmir Day by the Pakistan People’s Party.

The president of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi said in his message to the Kashmiri people that “It has been a battle of hope against overwhelming odds, of courage against fear, and of sacrifice against tyranny; but through all of it, the Kashmiri people have persisted, unrelenting and proud as they have always been, to deny India the perverse gratification of subjugating them.
He further talked about the 5th August incident of 2019 “On 5 August, India absolved itself of the last pretense of civility and justice by trying to deprive the Kashmiri people of their very identity. Through its illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019, India directly contravened the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions and tried to further brutalize the Kashmiri people”
At the end of his message, he added “The Government and the people of Pakistan will continue to extend their political, moral, and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people until they get their legitimate right to self-determination as per the United Nations Security Council Resolutions.

Pakistan will continue its full moral, political and diplomatic support until the Kashmiri people have realized their legitimate right of self-determination in accordance with the United Nations Charter and the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions”
Kashmir Day Speech
An idea of a very short Kashmir Day Speech below to help you on 5th February.
“Today we are here to show our unanimity towards the brave people of Jammu and Kashmir. India was never good toward the people of Kashmir. They tortured, killed, and insulted them. This is inhuman behavior towards people.
The people of Kashmir are deprived of human privileges. They are not treated well. People are treated as minors there. Just because of their religion.
We are with our Kashmiri brothers and sisters. We always support and cherish them. We want them to be free. Free from this cruel country, cruel government, free from this inhuman behavior.
In the end, I want to say if we really focus on helping our Kashmiri brothers we can get freedom for them. They deserve this. Freedom is what every human being is born for. We are praying and always willing to help them. We the people of Pakistan and the government of Pakistan are with all the Kashmiri people of India.”

Kashmir Day Quotes and Poetry
Some Poetry on Kashmir Day
Bodies all dusted.
Choices all busted.
Voices all gusted.
Rights all rusted.
The schools like barracks.
The playfields like Graveyards.
Buried all freedom lay in the backyards.
Speaking a word here brings you a thousand hazards.
Calling themselves doves are all Jeopardy.
with due regard to all nationalistic retards.
I want to say that Free Kashmir is on the cards.
Kashmir is Burning
Koi awaz ab uthaye ki Kashmir jal raha hai
Koi insaf ab dilaye ki Kashmir jal raha hai
Har fard hai pareshan, bechain o dil shikasta
Koi marham inhein lagaye ki Kashmir jal raha hai
Maon ki goad suni, har baap tadap raha hai
Koi inki sun le gaye ki Kashmir jal raha hai
Zalim hai sena tane, mazloom hai besahara
Koi zulm ab mitaye ki Kashmir jal raha hai
Din mai bhi hai andhera, khurshed bhi hai benoor
Koi shama banke aaye ki Kashmir jal raha hai
No one knows her here by her name,
the one who is sitting mum
there on a wooden log,
the woman whose son was slaughtered
with a chainsaw,
is the only identity she has
in this refugee camp.
Jang Rahy Gyi
Kashmir Ki Azadi Tak
Zalim Ki Barbadi Tak
Iraq Or Afghan Ki Shadbi Tk
Qibla E Awwal Ki Bazyabi Tk
Jang Rahy Gi Jang Rahy Gyi
Apni Unse Jaang Rahy Gyi..!!!
Wadi Ma Bichi Hai Saf_E_Matam Ab Tk
Zulm-O-Sitam-O-Chor Nahi Kab Tk
Uf Sabza O Gul Ma Ya Lpakte Shulay
Kashmir Ki Jannat Ha Jahanum Ab Tk.
