Geneva, March 13, 2017 (PPI-OT):A photo exhibition was held by the visiting Kashmiri delegation in Geneva to highlight plight of the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The organizers in a statement said this event was followed by a protest demonstration at historic Broken Chair in front of UN building in Geneva. Kashmiris living in different parts of Europe had come in huge number to reaffirm their support to the fundamental right of self-determination.
Speaking on the occasion, the Kashmiri leaders apprised the audience about the prevailing situation in Kashmir and the systematic human rights violations perpetrated by Indian forces on the Kashmiri civilians. “These leaders castigated India and expressed their anger on the silence of international community over these massive human rights violations,” according to the statement.
“The basic human and legal codes are being violated in every street of Kashmir. During raids, the Indian forces ransack houses, molest women and beat the residents besides eroding the privacy of civilian population, the speakers said.
“New Delhi has usurped all the fundamental rights of Kashmiri people including the right to live. Uninterrupted killing, blinding and maiming of Kashmiri children has opened a new chapter of brutality and barbarism in the bleeding Kashmir. It is high time for the international community to break the silence on this bloodshed and hold an impartial probe to expose the ugly faces involved in these gruesome acts,” they said.
