GLASGOW: Tehreek-e-Kashmir Scotland (TeKS) and Scottish Human Rights Forum (SHRF) on Thursday jointly launched the 'Kashmir Digital Campaign' (KDC) to express solidarity with the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) who are under a draconian curfew since August 5.

President TeKS Muhammad Hanif Raja, while inaugurating the KDC, said that the messages on the digital van will expose the violent and brutal image of India that projects itself a democratic country through propaganda.

“KDC will show the world how New Delhi turned IOK into open-air prison where more than nine million people are caged,” he said.

“Kashmiris are compelled to bury their beloved in their gardens because the Indian army enjoys the impunity to shoot on sight if someone steps out of their house.”

Chairman SHRF Dr Javid Gil said: “We need to come out with new ideas to highlight human rights violations in IOK.”

Gill stressed that KDC is a new idea to highlight the dispute at an international level and expose Indian atrocities in the disputed region since August 5.

“Overseas Kashmiris have launched such kind of digital campaigns across the world and have attracted local communities and international media towards Kashmir's dangerous situation,” Gill claimed.

“Scottish people struggled for the right to self-determination for centuries and eventually they were granted by the British Government,” he said. “It is easy to convince Scottish how India deprived the people of IOK of their basic and birthrights granted by the United Nations.”
