new Delhi. The effect of the Reorganization Act, which came into force on 5 August 2019, is beginning to be seen. This is the reason that for the first time after 1948, neither a holiday nor any official functions will be held in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir (Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir) to celebrate Martyrs Day.
According to a senior official, “In December last year, there was no mention of Martyr’s Day on the birth anniversary of former Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah (J&K Prime Minister Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah) on July 13 and December 5 in the list of gazetted holidays. . Therefore, the question is not whether any official ceremony will be held or a holiday is declared on Monday.
Let us tell you that after the repeal of Article 370 on August 5 last year, the government released the list of Gazette holidays for the new Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. However, on 13 July and 5 December, Kashmir-centric parties were removed from the list of resentments.
The then Prime Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah, declared July 13, 1931 as Martyr’s Day on July 13 in memory of those who rebelled against the Dogra regime. 22 people were killed in the protests by the then Dogra ruler Maharaja Hari Singh.
