LONDON:

The Tehreek-e-Kashmir (TeK) United Kingdom has kicked off solidarity week, urging the world to take notice of Indian illegal occupation and grave human rights violations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

International Kashmir Conference was organised by TeK in which former members of parliament, lawyers, journalists, religious and political leaders, human rights activists from the US, UK, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan, European and Arab countries participated.

The conference was chaired by TeK UK President Raja Fahim Kayani and moderated by Information Secretary of TeK UK Rehana Ali.

Former members of the European parliament from the UK and Europe, Julie Ward, Teresa Griffin, Lord Wajid Khan, Shafaq Mahmood, Sajjad Karim and former British MP Graham Jones, while expressing their views said that Britain and Europe should demand an end to human rights violations in Kashmir before making trade deals with India, and Indian intentions that the Kashmir issue not to be discussed at the international level should be thwarted at every forum.

Member Legislative Assembly Abdul Rashid Turabi said that Kashmiris will not give up the demand for the right to self-determination until people of IIOJK get their birthright as per the UN resolutions.

Muzammil Ayub Thakur and Zafar Qureshi briefed the participants on the situation in IIOJK regarding Indian atrocities.

Daniel Khan from the US said that she had witnessed the atrocities in IIOJK with her own eyes and the silence of the world powers was heart-wrenching.

From Turkey and the Arab countries, Mejbel al-Sharika, Dalal al-Ajami, Dr Arshad Mohsen, Sheni Hamid and Turgay Evren said that wherever it is in the interest of the United Nations, they can get their resolutions implemented but they do not see the blood in IIOJK.

"It is a pity that the Muslim countries have not been able to unite and see the cruel face of India," they added.

The leaders of TeK, UK, Europe, Raja Fahim Kayani, Sardar Aftab Ahmed Advocate, Khawaja Muhammad Suleiman, Rehana Ali and Fakhiya Tayyab said that TeK will continue to expose the cruel face of India, support the freedom struggle of the oppressed Kashmiris and will continue to raise their voices throughout the world.
