In Brussels, the President of All Party Group on Kashmir in the European Parliament, Julie Ward, and Vice President, Klaus Buchner, in a joint statement, today, said that they were convinced that right to self-determination to the Kashmiris should no longer be denied. They deplored that the Indian forces in occupied Kashmir use excessive force which leads to killings of innocent people and a high number of injuries, many caused by pellet-firing shotguns. They added that India’s infamous National Investigation Agency has pinpointed the Hurriyat leaders for fake cases simply because they advocate the right to self-determination for the people of Kashmir.
