  Summary

A public holiday in AJK to mark the 75th anniversary of Accession to Pakistan Day.

July 19th is observed as Kashmir’s Accession to Pakistan Day by the Kashmiris living on either side of the line of control and in other parts of the world every year with the renewal of their pledge to continue the ongoing struggle for freedom of the occupied territory.

Though normally a day of observance, it will be a public holiday on this occasion to facilitate the masses to participate in the special programmes, an AJK government spokesperson confirmed.

On July 19th 1947, a resolution was passed that stated the aim of accession of the entire Jammu Kashmir state to Pakistan.

Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), or simply Azad Kashmir, is a region administered by Pakistan as a nominally self-governing entity and constituting the western portion of the larger Kashmir region, which has been the subject of a dispute between India and Pakistan since 1947.
