Protest held in Brussels against Indian brutalities in IIOJK

Brussels, August 15 (KMS): Kashmiri Council Europe (KC-EU) organized a protest demonstration to mark the “Black Day”, today, 15th August (Monday) in front of the Indian Embassy in Brussels, the capital city of Belgium.

It is important to mention that Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and across the world observe the Indian Independence Day as “Black Day’’ on Aug 15 every year.

It was three years ago, when the Modi regime revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and imposed a military siege in the territory.

The protest gathering in Brussels was arranged by Kashmir Council Europe (KC-EU). Representatives of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), Kashmir Peace Forum, PPP and PTI were also present on the occasion.

A large number of people from all walks of life including Kashmiris, Pakistanis and representatives of different organizations based in Belgium and other EU countries attended the demonstration. The participants of the protest gathering raised slogans against Indian occupation of Jammu and Kashmir and brutalities committed by the occupation forces in IIOK. They protested against anti-Kashmiris behavior of Indian authorities.

They called upon the Indian regime to immediately end military lockdown and release the Kashmiri political figures and activists without any delay. It also asked the Prime Minister of India to fulfill the promise of his great predecessor Jahwaharial Nehru to give a voice to the people of Jammu & Kashmir and to allow them to determine their own political future.

On the occasion, the Chairman of Kashmir Council Europe (KC-EU) Ali Raza Syed said, “We gathered here against Indian atrocities on Kashmiris. Ali Raza Syed determined that the peaceful struggle for liberation of Kashmir would be continued.”

Other speakers said, though rights under Indian rule was not the real destination of the people of Kashmir but the BJP-led Indian government attempted to repeal special status and to erase identity of people of Jammu and Kashmir by revoking Articles 370 and 35-A.

They called for immediate international attention on the existing situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir. They specially urged the United Nations Security Council to take its responsibility on the issue of Kashmir by taking serious action against Indian atrocities in occupied land. They called that the right to self determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir should be assured as soonest.
