The Kashmir Council EU also started to write letters to the EU officials and contacted the international bodies and human rights organizations asking them to take serious notice of severe situation of human rights in Indian occupied Kashmir. KC-EU is also in the contact through email with the politically and socially active figures of the world in the context.

Kashmir Council EU will also organize a rally in collaboration with Kashmir Free organization on 24th August in the city of Dresden in Germany and will also arrange a cycle rally on 27th August in Brussels for solidarity with the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Mr Ali Raza Syed said, life of people of Kashmir valley has been paralyzed as they are facing severe hardships due to crimes against the humanity committed by the Indian forces in this occupied territory.
He urged the international community to send their fact-finding missions and stop the human rights violation in the occupied Kashmir.
