Addressing on the occasion, the speakers said India is attempting to suppress the freedom spirit of Kashmiris through brutal tactics but will not succeed in its nefarious designs. They said, the indifference of the international community on India’s violation of human rights in Kashmir is condemnable.
The speakers said the Kashmiris will continue their struggle till they achieved freedom from Indian yoke. They said that now is the time for the United Nations to implement its resolutions to grant the right to self-determination as promised to the Kashmiris.
The speakers pointed out that the Muslims and other minorities are not safe in India. They said after the ongoing genocide in Kashmir, India has started targeting Sikh leaders in India and Canada. They said the murder of Sikh leader, Hardeep Singh Nijjar, in Canada has exposed before the world the state-sponsored terrorism being carried out by the Narendra Modi-led Indian government. They hailed the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for unmasking the involvement of the Indian government in the brutal killing of Hardeep Singh.
