Brussels, August 10 (KMS): Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU) continued its protest demonstrations in Brussels on Friday against Indian decision of revoking Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
The protest camp in the context was arranged at Place de L’Europe in front of Central Station in Brussels. The series of the protest was started in Brussels on Wednesday and there was also a protest camp at Place Schuman (In front of EU’s External Actions Service) on Thursday.
During the protest camp, KCEU’s Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, and his team were constantly engaged in updating the European people about the latest situation in occupied Kashmir, especially India’s fresh decision of revoking special status of the territory. Brochures and pamphlets regarding the Kashmir dispute and violation of human rights in occupied Kashmir were also circulated during the protest camp.
A number of people also signed the documents of one million signature campaign for expressing their solidarity with the oppressed people of Kashmir.
Ali Raza Syed on the occasion said, “We shall continue to raise our voice against the Indian decision for revoking special status of Jammu and Kashmir and Indian atrocities against the people of Kashmir.”
It is important to mention here that by issuing a presidential order, India on Monday announced to abrogate Articles 370 and 35-A which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and special rights to the people of the territory.
Ali Raza Syed said, imposing new legislation by the Indian government for abolition of special status of Jammu and Kashmir cannot stop struggle of Kashmiri people for freedom from Indian occupation.
The KCEU Chairman also met high-ranking EU’s External Service officials updating them about the present situation of occupied Kashmir. He also called upon the international community especially the world powers to take serious notice of the severe situation in the occupied territory and play their due role for preventing human rights violations and for peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute.
