Leaders of various political, human rights and Hurriyat organizations urged International community to take serious notice of Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir. The speakers
While paying glowing tributes to the martyred freedom fighter said that Afzal Guru was hanged to death without being given a fair trial.
