Hundreds of Non Resident Kashmiris (NRKs) on Sunday took to streets in various countries protesting against the civilian killings in this part of Kashmir.

During the protest demonstrations in United Kingdom and Canada, the Kashmiris protestors, who had invited the native citizens in their protests, called for “resolution of the Kashmir dispute according to UN resolutions”.

The NRKs posted scores of pictures of protests on their Facebook pages and Twitter handles.

The pictures showed that hundreds of NRKs holding a rally in London, capital city of United Kingdom which recently witnessed change of guard at the PM’s level.

This part of Kashmir is witnessing mass uprising since July 09, a day after, militant commander Burhan Wani was killed by forces in South Kashmir’s Kokernag area.

Burhan Wani had evolved a poster boy of the “new age” militancy in Kashmir. He was a tech savvy armed rebel whose actions were restricted to virtual world. However, he led a group of at least 17 militants. His killing triggered a chain reaction in Kashmir. Forces opened fire when people marched on streets demanding “Azaadi” on way to Burhan’s home town Tral on July 09, Saturday. Many fell to bullets and protests escalated.

From Northern America, hundreds of Kashmiris along with their friends and relatives from the host country held protests in the capital city of Toronto. They raised slogans and banners against civilian killings.

Various other pictures are being uploaded on Facebook and Twitter from Kashmiris living in Arab nations and Southern Australian continent condemning the civilian killings and showing solidarity with Kashmiris. People in Pakistani cities also took out rallies and held demonstrations in favour of Kashmiris since last Saturday.
