Brussels, October 28 (KMS): Kashmir Council European Union (KCEU) organized a protest demonstration in front of Indian Embassy in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, to mark as Black Day 27th October, the day when India illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir in 1947.

A large number of Kashmiris and their supporters attended the demonstration, which was led by KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed. The demonstrators demanded of New Delhi to free Kashmir and give right to self-determination to the Kashmir people. They also dropped a memorandum at the Indian embassy which emphasized that India should end brutalities against the Kashmiris, withdraw its troops from occupied Kashmir and fulfill its promise of giving the Kashmiris an opportunity to decide their fate by themselves.

Addressing the protesters, Ali Raza Syed said 27th October 1947 is the darkest day in the history of Jammu and Kashmir when India in total violation of all international norms and democratic values landed its troops in the territory and occupied it against the will of Kashmiri people.

He said, India claims to be the largest democracy of the world but it refuses the democratic rights of the people of Kashmir. He said, peace in the region is linked to the settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.

Other speakers said, “We simply want to convey a message to India that there is no point in glorifying the democracy if people are living in miseries under might of the gun.”

The protesters also raised slogans in favour of Kashmir’s freedom movement and against Indian occupation of Kashmir.
