According to details, large number of people gathered in front of Central Press Club while holding banners and placards stated Indian atrocities and chanted slogans against Indian state terrorism.

Speakers on the occasion said that the brutal government of Bharatiya Janata Party has killed several unarmed civilians particularly youngsters in fake encounters.

The speakers said that apart from IIOJ&K, millions of Muslims are facing fear, terror and brutality in other parts of India.

They lamented that thousands of Kashmiri citizens were languished in Indian notorious jails illegally besides house arrests.
