The Chief guest of the conference was Chairman Public Accounts Committee Abdul Rasheed Turabi while President Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement Altaf Ahmed Bhat attended the conference as Guest of Honor. The conference was chaired by President Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK Fahim Kayani.

President Jammu Kashmir Salvation Movement, Altaf Ahmed Bhat said being a founder member of Kashmir freedom Movement we have witnessed that due to little misunderstandings we have lost hundreds of brave freedom seekers of Kashmir.

“Our Enemy has always benefitted from our mistakes, which must never be repeated again. Now we have to be firm on one single point Plebiscite, if all the parties are united and demand this single agenda then the world will be compelled to implement the right to self determination provided by the United Nations to the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.” Bhat added.

Bhat appealed to the Govt of Pakistan to take practical steps to liberate Kashmir from the dark clouds of Indian State terrorism, Oppression, and subjugation.

President Tehreek e Kashmir Europe Muhammad Ghalib said that, Kashmir Freedom Movement is the continuation of the sacrifices of Martyrs of 13 July 1931. The besieged people of IOJ&K stand firm against 9 million brutal Indian forces. We have taken Kashmir issue to world avenues, parliaments, legislatures, civic societies, but we are time and again being told that Pakistan and India must resolve this issue.

Shaffaq Mehmood Former MEP said that young people must know the history, what happened in 1931, and we need to make people aware of it. He paid tribute to the martyrs of Kashmir and said that mass graves have been discovered in Kashmir, while since december the Modi govt no longer made 13 July a public holiday in Kashmir.

Rana Ather Javed, Director Pakistan House said that, today is the day which revives the passion of Martyrdom, and demonstrates the inherited tyranny of Indian State against the besieged people of Kashmir.

Dr Mubeen Shah, Former President Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry during his address said that, 89 years passed since 1931 and still we didn’t get freedom. Kashmir is under draconian Laws where speaking truth could land people into jail for unlimited time, such as PSA.

Chairman GPKSC Raja Sikander said that we have to come with a positive approach, united, and firm, these are the ingredients of success for Kashmir cause. While people of IOJ&K are under worst lockdown and curfew, they are suffering from harsh and punitive measure taken by Indian govt, we need constructive and result oriented steps for Kashmir cause.

Councillor Summara Khursheed emphasized on unity, united under one banner for Kashmir cause, so that the dream of Freedom of Kashmir is fulfilled and the tyranny, oppression, and subjugation of Kashmiri people comes to an end. Mobilizing and grooming Youth is also vital for Kashmir cause as the movement will be carried by them in the future.
