The statement reads in parts; "27 October, 1947 is one of the darkest days of human history".

Addressing the protesters, Ali Raza Syed said 27th October 1947 is the darkest day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir when India in total violation of all global norms and democratic values landed its troops in the territory and occupied it against the will of Kashmiri people.

Referring to the atrocities and gross human rights violations being committed by India against the Kashmiri people, Ambassador Durrani said that after the extra-judicial killing of Burhan Wani past year by the Indian forces, Indian brutalities against innocent Kashmiris has increased to unprecedented levels in terms of killing and torture of Kashmiris, especially youth. "Despite commitments made by the early Indian leadership and numerous resolutions of the UN Security Council on Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian government has unleashed a reign of terror in Kashmir", the premier alleged.

The protesters also raised slogans in favour of Kashmir's freedom movement and against Indian occupation of Kashmir. India had used massive and indiscriminate force to suppress this indigenous freedom struggle.

He added, "This support will continue till the realisation of the lawful right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir".
