We are creating space for peace in the region as we are observing this day as historic day and day of national hero’s but Modi sarkar is not ready to observed this day of those historic heros who are buried in India and they were Muslim.
We demand that Govt. of india and Pakistan declare all freedom fighter to be the national hero’s and their days must be observed as national days.
