Brussels, July 14 (KMS): Kashmir Council EU (KCEU) held a peaceful protest camp in Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, on the occasion of the martyrdom anniversary of Kashmiri martyrs of 13th July 1931.

The camp was organized in front of European Union’s institutions including EU’s External Action Service at the EU headquarters in Brussels. The programme was a part of Kashmir Council European Union’s widespread awareness movement on Kashmir and copies of the UN’s recent report on Kashmir were also handed over to the officials of the EU’s institutions.

It is important to mention that the United Nations in its first-ever human rights report on Kashmir has called for an urgent need to address past and ongoing human rights violations and abuses and deliver justice to all people in Kashmir. The main focus of the report released by the UN Human Rights Office in Geneva, remained on the human rights situation in occupied Kashmir from July 2016 to April 2018.

During the camp, the volunteers of KCEU also took signatures from the European people in favour of Kashmiris and against the human rights violations perpetrated by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir. They also informed the European people about the prevailing situation in the territory.

On the occasion, the KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, said that the purpose of the camp was to apprise the Europeans about human rights violations in occupied Kashmir. He said, “We will continue our struggle till peaceful resolution of Kashmir dispute. The issue should be resolved according to the wishes of the people of Kashmir.”

The EU should put pressure on India to stop human rights abuses in occupied Kashmir and give the Kashmiri people their right to self-determination, he maintained.
