KCEU to hold two programmes on Kashmir dispute in Brussels

Brussels, December 05, 2014 (PPI-OT): The Kashmir Council European Union (KCEU) and International Council for Human Development (ICHD) will organise two important programmes about the Kashmir dispute in Brussels, next week.

The KCEU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed, in a statement from Brussels said, a camp with regard to “One Million Signature Campaign on Kashmir” and issue of “Mass Graves” would be set up in front of European Parliament in Brussels on Tuesday.

He said that there would also be a one-day conference titled, “Plebiscite and Elections: The impact of current policy on future of occupied Jammu and Kashmir” at European Press Club in Brussels on Wednesday. According to the statement, both programmes are being arranged at a very crucial time when Indian authorities are engaged in staging an elections drama in occupied Kashmir.

A number of MEPs, representatives of NGOs, human rights activists and noted figures from different walks of life are invited in the conference on the occasion of International Human Rights Day (December 10, Wednesday).

Ali Raza Syed said that the elections under Indian rule were no solution to the Kashmir dispute. There should be plebiscite under United Nations supervision to ascertain the political will of Kashmiri people, he added.

The KCEU Chairman said that the Kashmiri people, struggling for their right to self-determination, never accepted the elections under Indian constitution. He stated that by holding elections, New Delhi wanted to show that Kashmir was also part of its democracy.

Ali Raza Syed also condemned recent detention of Hurriyet leaders and workers opposing the Indian elections, particularly rounding up of youth and imposing restrictions in the different areas.
