New York State Assembly has passed a resolution to observe February 5 as Kashmir American Day.

The resolution to observe February 5 as Kashmir American Day was passed by a majority vote in the New York State Legislative Assembly and the Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo issued the notification after the assembly passed the resolution.

This Resolution makes New York the first State to recognise Kashmir American Day which would “celebrate the Kashmiri identity”.

It recognises Kashmiris as “those who speak Koshur language”, irrespective of faith and recognises that the Kashmiris have overcome adversity, shown perseverance, and established themselves as one of the pillars of New York.

February 5 was observed by Pakistan as Kashmir Solidarity Day on “to give a united message to the world for standing besides Kashmiris facing unprecedented atrocities” in Kashmir.
