The Kashmiri diaspora in Europe held a demonstration outside UN headquarters in Geneva, today, to condemn the ongoing Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir.
The demonstrators holding placards and banners raised high-pitch slogans favouring freedom of Kashmir.
A good number of Kashmiris from across Europe also descended on the office of the United Nations in Geneva to thank the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights for its historic report on Kashmir. They strongly condemned the Indian intransigence and asked UNHRC to act upon the recommendations to establish a commission of inquiry to investigate the rights violations in Kashmir.
Those who attended the demonstration included Altaf Hussain Wani, Johan Howarth, Chaudhary Parveez Ashraf, Sardar Amjad Yousaf, Syed Faiz Naqashbandi, Hassan al Bana, Advocate Parvez Shah and Shamim Shawl.
Meanwhile, a Kashmiri delegation held a detailed meeting with OIC’s permanent representative to Geneva Dr Rashid Bin Hamed Al-Balushi and briefed him on prevailing rights situation in occupied Kashmir. The delegation apprised the OIC representative about the ongoing systematic and massive human rights abuses perpetrated by the Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.—KMS
