Worldwide protests against Indian unilateral and illegal action to change demography of Occupied Kashmir and to express solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiri people are continuing.
Members of Turkish non-governmental organizations (NGOs) gathered in front of the Indian Embassy in Ankara late Friday to express their solidarity with the people of India-administered Jammu and Kashmir. Dozens of people carried placards reading “The People of Kashmir Want Freedom” and “Kashmiris should be given the right to choose their political future”.
Speaking at the rally, Ahmet Sanver, chairman of the Anatolian Youth Association’s Ankara branch, underlined that the major part of the Kashmir Valley was under Indian occupation, calling on the Indian government to stop deploying troops to the region.
“The future and status of Kashmir should be decided by the people of Kashmir, not by New Delhi,” Sanver said, referring a 1948 UN resolution over a plebiscite to decide the fate of the picturesque valley. “The occupying Indian government should end its disproportionate violence against the Kashmir people.”
With the “unacceptable practices and decisions” of the Indian government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kashmir is on the “verge of war”, he stressed.
