KCEU to hold candle light vigil in Brussels for solidarity with oppressed Kashmiris

Brussels, February 04 (KMS): Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU) will organize a candle light vigil in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, in order to express solidarity with oppressed people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The KCEU in a statement issued in Brussels said, the program will be arranged at 4 p.m. on Sunday, 5th February, in connection with Kashmir Solidarity Day at European Squire in front of Central Station in Brussels, the EU headquarters. A BBC’s documentary about violence against Muslims in India and another documentary on atrocities against the people of Jammu and Kashmir will be shown on a wider screen through projector.

The KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, in the statement condemned the atrocities committed by Indian troops in IIOJK. He paid rich tribute to the brave people of Kashmir struggling for their right to self-determination.

“We will continue our support to the people of Kashmir till suitable resolution of the Kashmir dispute. People of Kashmir are struggling peacefully for right to self-determination and there should be plebiscite under United Nations supervision in order to make clear political fate of the disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

Ali Raza Syed pointed out that deployment of over eight lac Indian troops in IIOJK is a proof of brutal occupation as large scale human rights violations are being committed by these troops. Indian authorities are engaged to suppress the peaceful mass movement in IIOJK by use of force and killing of innocent people, he deplored.

He demanded that UN and European Union should play their role for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute. He also urged the world community to put pressure on India to stop its state terrorism in IIOJK.
