72 years ago, at midnight of 24 Nov 1947, Pakistan attacked Mirpur district after accession of J&K to India.

More than 18000 Hindus and Sikhs were massacred in Mirpur by Pakistan.

Only 3000 of Mirpuris could save themselves to find refuge in Jammu.

Do you know why?

Because Pakistan asked them to put white flags over their houses as a symbol of surrender to Pakistan.

The brave Hindus of Mirpur put red flags over to show that they will not surrender, they will fight for their motherland.

Pakistan Govt made an agreement with Pathan mercenaries, known as “Zen and Zar Agreement ”.

It was agreed that after occupying Mirpur, the cash, property and land would be the share of Pakistan and the captured women would be taken by the Pathans.
