Brussels, November 05 (KMS): The Chairman of Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU), Ali Raza Syed has praised the RAFTO Foundation of Norway for giving its annual award of 2017 to two leading Kashmiri human right defenders, Parvez Imroz advocate and Parveena Ahangar.

Ali Raza Syed in a statement said the award by the internationally famous organisation to Parvez Imroz and Parveena Ahangar is worldwide recognition of rights of the people of Kashmir.

The Rafto Foundation for Human Rights was established in 1986 in gratitude for the efforts and inspiration of human rights activities at international level rendered by late Professor Thorolf Rafto, the professor of Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen, Norway.

The statement of Chairman Kashmir Council EU who is in Bergen to attend the award ceremony said, these two human rights activists are among the people who refused to accept the violation and abuses of human rights in occupied Kashmir as they are struggling to protect the rights of the oppressed people of Kashmir for a long time.

It is worldwide acceptance and recognition of their great work for a noble cause of Kashmir. They exposed the violence against those want freedom from Indian illegal occupation in Kashmir. Parvez Imroz and Parveena Ahangar are such people who teach peace and work for peace and human rights in occupied Kashmir. They share their voices against state terrorism and severe brutalities committed by the Indian occupation forces in IHK.

Mr Ali Raza underlined, the initiative of RAFTO Norway for giving award to the kashmiri activists prove that crimes against humanity including harassment of women and children is not acceptable by the international human rights organisation and such violence has no place in the civilised world today.

He hoped that the award will give more awareness about Kashmir dispute and will give more voice and courage to the voiceless people of Kashmir.
