The conference which lasted for three hours was attended by students, journalists, human rights activists, academicians and columnists besides social activists, the statement said.
Er Rasheed gave a detailed presentation on account of damage caused due to the excessive force on unarmed Kashmiris and appealed the participants to help in awaking Indians that Kashmiris are being killed, blinded and tortured in the name of so called nationalism.
He appealed participants to make understand the people of India, that they should ask Government of India to stop blaming and abusing Pakistan for “its worst failures and atrocities” in Kashmir and understand that what so ever Kashmiris are seeking is indigenous.
Rashid added that demanding plebiscite or seeking resolution to Kashmir Issue, doesn’t give GoI a reason or logic to kill and blind Kashmiris and control them by an uninterrupted curfews.
The participants expressed serious concern over the continuous killings, use of pellet guns and it was unanimously felt that the only way to get permanent peace in the region is to get Kashmir Issue resolved, the statement added.
