Shamim Shawl threw light on the violence against Kashmir women. Thereafter the delegation met the participants on individual basis during which they pledged their full support to the work undertaken by the delegation to raise the issue within the EU.

The delegation addressed the press at the Brussels Press Club. “Bruised Kashmir” (a movie) was shown which left a serious mark on the journalists present there. On conclusion, the delegation participated at a community event which was hosted by the Kashmiri diaspora in Belgium.
