A shutdown called by many resistance groups against the landing of the Indian army in Indian administered Kashmir on October 27, in 1947. Kashmir observes shut down on this day 'since the beginning of an armed rebellion' to protest the landing of Indian army in the mountainous region after the king of the former Independent princely state signed a conditional instrument of accession with the Indian union in 1947. The Indian army landed to quell an internal revolt aided by tribal warriors from Pakistan. (Photo by Yawar Nazir/Getty Images)
