LONDON: Kashmiri leaders continue to raise their voices at all international platforms against New Delhi’s atrocities in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) which has been under siege for the past 79 days.

Speaking at Kashmir Conference held in Derby, United Kingdom (UK), they urged the world community to step forward for settling the Kashmir issue once and for all.

“India’s act of targeting civilians on the Line of Control (LoC) is not only brutal but inhuman and global powers must condemn it,” said one of the speakers at the event, which was organised by Tehreek-e-Kashmir (TeK) UK on Monday.

Reiterating support for the Kashmiri cause, TeK Europe President Muhammad Ghalib said, "Kashmiris will never bow before India as New Delhi is not sincere to settle the Kashmir dispute."
