Brussels, February 05, 2019 (PPI-OT): Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU) organized an event of candle light vigil in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, in order to express solidarity with the oppressed people of occupied Kashmir. A large number of people from all walks of life and representatives of different NGOs attended the event held in front of Brussels’ central railways station.
Holding placards having anti-terrorism slogans while standing in a row with their hands clasped each other forming a human chain, the demonstrators headed by senior office-bearer of Kashmir KCEU, Chaudhry Khalid Mahmood Joshi, expressed their solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris specially families of martyrs killed by Indian troops during last few decades in the occupied territory.
The participants condemned the atrocities and genocide of Kashmiris committed by Indian occupational forces and paid glowing tributes to the brave people of occupied Kashmir. The speakers of the demonstration said, people of Kashmir are struggling peacefully to secure their right to self-determination and there should be plebiscite under the UN supervision to ascertain the political fate of Jammu and Kashmir.
They pointed out that over seven lakhs Indian troops deployed in occupied Kashmir were committing massive human rights violations in the territory. Indian authorities are engaged in pressing the Kashmiris’ peaceful liberation struggle by use of force and the presence of unnamed mass graves is a proof of the massacre of the Kashmiri people, they said.
Meanwhile, the KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, in a statement on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day said, “We will continue our support to the people of Kashmir till the settlement of the Kashmir dispute.” He urged the UN and the European Union to play their role in peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
