Protests against Indian actions in Kashmir took place in the Pakistani-administered part of the valley on Wednesday, with refugees who fled India calling for military action against India. The refugees, many of whom have lived for years in a camp in Muzaffarabad, also said they'll mark India's Republic Day tomorrow, as a black day in the calendar.

They're angered by India revoking the special status of its portion of Himalayan Kashmir on August 5 and Delhi's moves to quell widespread unrest by shutting down communications and clamping down on freedom of movement. Earlier in the day, Pakistan Prime Minister traveled to Muzaffarabad to address the regional parliament and express his solidarity with the people of Kashmir. But many Kashmiris said the time for talking was over, and action was needed.
