Islamabad, February 10, 2019 (PPI-OT): Syekh Datuk Seri Ahmad Awang, a representative of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organization (MAPIM), and Chairman of International Alliance of World Masjid, attended the London Conference on Kashmir, which was held at the British Parliament, as organized by All Parties Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Pakistan on 4th February, 2019, says a press release received here today from London.
MAPIM is a conglomeration of over 200 NGOs with affiliation in 21 countries. MAPIM has remained concerned on the plight of Kashmiri Muslims in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK). MAPIM, in the recent past, has organized a number of events in an expression of solidarity with our Kashmiri brothers and sisters in their efforts towards their right to self-determination and bravely facing the brutalities perpetrated by the Indian forces with impunity for many decades.
We have noted that tens of thousands of Kashmiri Muslims have been martyred including women, men, boys, girls, old and young ones over decades. We appreciate all such efforts as the one organized by APPG on Pakistan by the British Parliamentarians to highlight the grave human rights situation in IoK.
The spirit behind representation by MAPIM from Malaysia, which involved more than 20 hours of travelling and a long distance, was solely to attend the Kashmir event to reassure our Kashmiri brothers and sisters in IoK that we are with them and we will do everything in our capacity to stop their bloodshed of Kashmiris immediately and ensure delivery of justice to them by taking steps that lead to bringing the perpetrators to account.
