They appealed the international human rights organisations to help stop human rights abuses in Kashmir and play an effective role in peaceful settlement of the dispute.
The participants urged India to “read the writing on the wall” and grant the people of Kashmir their inalienable right to self-determination, as acknowledged by the United Nations.
