“International Calls Intensify to Address Human Rights Crisis in IIOJK Amidst Ongoing Political Movement”
MUZAFFARABAD: Prominent voices at a seminar on “IIOJK after August 5, 2019, and the role of diaspora and the Azad Government of the State of Jammu and Kashmir” held in Muzaffarabad emphasized the urgent need to highlight the escalating human rights violations and political arrests in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) on international platforms such as the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The objective is to exert pressure on the Indian government to cease the excessive use of force in suppressing the indigenous political movement in the region.
The seminar, organized by the Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM), coincided with the “Accession to Pakistan Week,” which commenced on July 19, commemorating the historic announcement of Kashmir’s accession to Pakistan on July 13, 1947, in Srinagar.
During the event, Raja Fahim Kayani, the chief guest and President of Tehreek-e-Kashmir United Kingdom (TeK UK), asserted the unwavering support from the people in the UK and other European countries for the Kashmiri cause, vowing to contribute significantly to advocating for their rights.
