Pakistan will not allow India to solve the Kashmir issue on it own way, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz said.

"India wants to resolve the Kashmir dispute on its own way and Pakistan will not allow this Indian attempt to succeed," The Nation quoted Aziz as saying Saturday.

He said Pakistan is responding to the Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in a befitting manner.

Pakistan's desire for peace should not be mistaken as its weakness, Aziz said.

He said Pakistan has been highlighting human rights violations by the Indian forces in Kashmir where India has deployed 700,000 troops to suppress Kashmiris.

"The government will send emissaries and delegations to different countries to inform them about the Indian aggression along the LoC and human rights violations in Kashmir by the Indian forces," he added.

According to Radio Pakistan, Kashmiris on both sides of the LoC and across the world, will observe "Black Day" Oct 27 to convey to the world that India has occupied Jammu and Kashmir against their will.

The day will be marked with a complete shutdown in Kashmir and rallies in other places as it was Oct 27, 1947, when the Indian troops invaded Jammu and Kashmir and occupied it.

A call for the shutdown has been given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, according to Radio Pakistan.

Farooq, it said, criticised India for diluting the Kashmir dispute and delaying its resolution by raking up electoral and administrative issues.
