(KVI-London): In an emergency meeting of Kashmir Voice International (KVI) held in London on15th December, 2018, the killings in Pulwama by Indian Armed Forces, a massacre, were highly condemned. The continuous indiscriminate killings by the forces appear to be the pursuit of a well laid down policy at Delhi to treat Kashmiris as enemies. The claim that Kashmir is an integral part and its people are our own citizens gets exposed day by day. It appears that India wants land and not the people of Kashmir.
The Chairman, M.A.Raina expressed shock over the indifference of world powers and United Nations and suggested that KVI should approach the relevant institutions and Western Countries seeking their help to impress upon India to give a stop to serious human rights violations in Kashmir.
The Vice Chair Irshad Malik during discussion stressed the need of projecting the gross human rights violations that Indian Armed Forces are committing, at international level. He further said that it is the bounden duty of KVI being the only organization from the valley to expose the atrocities being committed on our innocent and defenseless people. He stressed the need that the people from valley living in the west should take up this job themselves. In this connection he suggested that the Foreign Offices of different countries and human rights organizations working at international level should be approached forthwith.
Secretary Javid Kakroo said that Kashmiris are victim of different guns. He advocated that all guns should silence and stakeholders should create a climate of peace for a negotiated settlement.
The other members present also made some valuable suggestions for KVI to pursue in order to help create environment giving a stop to further loss of life.
It was decided that a letter should be sent to Indian High Commission London expressing concern regarding the loss of lives and seeking an appointment to personally convey the feelings of Valley Diaspora.
KVI also discussed the program of second anniversary event to be organized in January 2019. A Sub Committee was constituted to take up the job of organizing this event.
