The resolution also expressed serious concern over the rape and murder of 8- year old-girl in Hirangar in Kathua district.
The speakers, “denounced the tactics being employed by India to force the Muslim population in Jammu to migrate from the region and said that the UN has a responsibility to stop human rights violations and the Kashmiris’ systematic “genocide” by the forces.”
The speakers also referred to the findings of reports of investigating organizations in the wake of discovery of unnamed and unmarked mass graves in Kashmir.
