Fahim Kayani, President Tehreek-e-Kashmir, UK, the host said that the webinar provided a platform to analyze the situation in Indian occupied Kashmir and provided some suggestions to resolve one of the longest standing issue of the United Nations – Kashmir. He added that the Kashmir dispute has resulted in heavy death and destruction in Kashmir simply because the Indian Army was given impunity under draconian laws like Armed Forces Special Powers Act and Public Safety Act (PSA).

“Soldiers kill civilians with impunity. Indeed, Indian law grants virtual legal immunity to any type of war crime or crime against humanity perpetrated in Kashmir. The people of Kashmir have suffered long and needlessly because of this brutal conflict. They demand and they deserve peace,” Fahim kayani reiterated. »
