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 state and government that there is no point in glorifying the democracy if people are living in misery under the might of the gun. If democracy is all about the individual’s rights and freedom, then I must remind the Indian state that a nation is clamouring for its right to live in dignity, its right to decide about its future, its right to rule and above all, its right to freedom. Needless to say, the so-called “biggest” democracy of the world, India is ruthlessly suppressing these rights and continuously killing the innocent Kashmiri people at will.
If democracy is all about justice, then I must say that our fellow Kashmiris are not getting the justice even after six decades.
He said, at this moment, I salute the brave and committed struggle of our brothers and sisters in the held Kashmir fighting peacefully.
The Kashmir Council’s press release also announced that Kashmir Council EU would organised ‘Solidarity Day’ on 5th February with the collaboration of other organisation particularly Kashmir Centre Holland in Brussels.
