The Jammu and Kashmir Forum France (JKFF) organized a function in Paris to pay tributes to popu-lar Kashmiri youth leader, Burhan Muzaffar Wani, on his martyrdom anniversary.
The President of Jammu Kashmir Forum France, Mirza Asif Jarral, addressing on the occa-sion said the martyrdom of Burhan Wani gave impetus to the Kashmiris’ struggle for freedom.
He said India has turned Indian illegal occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) into a prison, usurping all basic rights of the people of the territory.
“We stand with our oppressed Kashmiri brothers and sisters against the Indian oppression,” he added.
Mirza Asif Jarral said, attempts have been made to turn the Muslim-majority territory into a minor-ity, adding that the Indian move of August 5, 2019 is against the United Nations resolutions.
He deplored that sexual violence against women had increased and the United Nations and interna-tional human rights organizations must play their part in protecting the Kashmiri women.
The JKFF Chairman said, the Modi-led fascist Indian government has ruined the future of Kash-miri youth as they are deprived of education.
Schools, colleges and universities have been closed for the past three years, he added.—KMS
