New Delhi, July 15 (IBNS): India on Friday rejected Pakistan's decision to observe July 19 as a "Black Day" in a bid to mark solidarity with Kashmiris.
India reacted to the issue and in a statement, the MEA said: "India completely and unequivocally rejects  in entirety the decisions adopted by the Cabinet of Pakistan on the situation  in Jammu and Kashmir."
 
"We are dismayed at the continued attempts by Pakistan to interfere in our internal matters, where, we reiterate,Pakistan or any other external party has no locus standi," read the statement.
 
"Continued glorification of terrorists belonging to proscribed terrorist organisations makes it amply clear where Pakistan's sympathies continue to lie," it said.
 
The Kashmir Valley is witnessing massive violence since the death of militant leader Burhan Wani.
 
Pakistan,meanwhile, announced to observe 'Black Day' on July 19.
 
Pakistan will observe Tuesday, July 19 as a black day in protest against the killings of innocent Kashmiris by Indian security forces in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the federal cabinet announced on Friday, Geo News reported.
 
Wani, a 22-year-old commander of Kashmir's largest militant group HM, was killed along with two associates during a brief gun battle with government forces on July 8.
