In a statement, Chairman KC-EU Ali Raza Syed said, India claims of being largest democracy of the world but it refuses the democratic rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir as atrocities against the people are continued. He said, peace in Kashmir is connected to the whole region. If Kashmir is witness of peace, the whole region would be witness of peace and prosperity.
Chairman Kashmir Council EU Ali Raza Syed said that Kashmiri nation is not ready to compromise on their right to self determination.
On the Indian republic day, we simply want to convey a message to Indian government that there is no point in glorifying the democracy if people are living in miseries under the might of the gun, he said.
KC-EU’s Chairman Ali Raza Syed demanded New Delhi to give right of self-determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He emphasized that India should end brutalities against the Kashmiris and fulfil its promise for right of Self-determination to the people of Kashmir.
He also called the International community to intervene to stop human rights violations in occupied Kashmir and play its role for just resolution of Kashmir issue.
He said, India is the so-called “biggest” democracy of the world but in reality, it’s not a democracy because New Delhi is ruthlessly suppressing the democratic rights of Kashmiris and continuously killing the innocent Kashmiri people as well.
If democracy is all about justice, then we must say that our fellow Kashmiris are not getting the justice even after seven decades.
He called the Indian government to stop violations of human rights in occupied Kashmir and fulfil its promise to give right to self determination to the oppressed people of Jammu and Kashmir.
