Toronto rally condemns Indian army killings in Kashmir

Toronto—Hundreds of Canadians from all walks of life gathered outside the Indian Consulate in Toronto denouncing Indian army crimes against innocent Kashmiris. Organized by the Friends of Kashmir, Canada, the rally attracted Canadians of different backgrounds including many of Kashmiri and Pakistani origins but also a large number of Sikhs and other Canadians.
They not only raised slogans against Indian crimes but speakers also drew attention to the decades-long oppression of Kashmiris by the brutal Indian army. It was repeatedly emphasized that Kashmir is not part of India and has never been.
There are several UN Security Council resolutions calling for a referendum in Kashmir. When the Indian army first occupied the state in October 1947, Indian rulers promised to respect the wishes of the people but as they tightened their grip on Kashmir, they backed out of this pledge given not only to the people of Kashmir but also the entire world.—Email
