Dublin, May 05 (KMS): Kashmir Council Europe (KC-EU)’s team will launch a two-day ‘One Million Signature Campaign’ in Dublin, the Capital of Ireland, to create widespread awareness on the Kashmir issue.
The team will collect signature from the Irish people in favour of oppressed people of Kashmir during the two-day signature camp on Monday and Tuesday in the capital city.
The EU-based campaign had been first launched in Belgium a few years ago and so far, a large number the people in the different European countries have signed the documents of the signature drive.
Local NGOs and social activists based in different European countries have supported the motivation of move and held camps in the context in the host countries.
In a statement ahead of the signature camp in Dublin, Chairman Kashmir Council EU Ali Raza Syed said, the Council has already organized successful camps in connection with the signature campaign in the different EU countries and a massive number of people showed their positive response in the context.
It is important to mention that basic aim of the EU based signature drive is to collect a million signatures in order to highlight the conflict of Kashmir and pressurize New Delhi to stop the human rights abuses perpetrated by the Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.
The collection of one million signatures will be presented in the shape of the document to the ‘European Parliament’s human rights committee’ in order to raise the issue of violations of human rights in occupied Kashmir.
Condemning the violations, Ali Raza Syed pointed out the issues related to killing of innocent people in extra judicial actions, illegal detention of youth and political leaders and enormous search operations against innocent masses by Indian security forces in the occupied territory.
Ali Raza Syed urged the international community especially the United Nations (UN) and EU to stop human rights abuses in Kashmir and take necessary steps for a peaceful resolution of Kashmir dispute.
