“People should observe the strike from 4 pm January 25 to January 26 evening.  They should hoist black flags with the slogans of Go India Go. Though India claims to be one of the biggest democracies, however, it stands exposed as it has snatched the right to self-determination of Kashmiris since past 63-years. India has no right to observe or celebrate its Republic Day,” Geelani had said.
