Brussels, June 10 (KMS): Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU) will arrange a seminar on Friday (11 June) in Brussels, the European Headquarters, to pay tribute to the martyrs of Chota Bazaar, Srinagar.
On June 11, 1991, Indian paramilitary CRPF troops had opened indiscriminate fire with automatic weapons in Chotta Bazaar, the populated downtown area of Srinagar killing 32 innocent civilians and critically injuring 22 others.
The KCEU in a statement issued in Brussels, today, said the seminar will start at 2 p.m. local time under the new SOPs of COVID-19 of indoor gathering at the European Press Club, Brussels.
The speakers of the seminar will also talk about the current situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir as well as Modi government’s latest plan to formally separate the Jammu region from the Kashmir Valley.
The KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, in a statement said, it was thirty years ago when incident of Chota Baazar happened but the sad memories of the massacre still disturb the Kashmiris especially whose loved ones were slaughtered by the Indian troops.
Paying rich tribute to the victims, he said, Kashmiris remember martyrs of Chota Bazaar as the great sons of soil with respect and honour and reiterate the pledge that their sacrifices will not be forgotten and their mission will be taken to its logical conclusion.
He said, the time has showed that India could neither hide its crimes against the humanity in IIOJK nor would be able to stop the Kashmiris’ struggle for liberation of their homeland.
