LondonKashmiri parties, including the London-based Kashmir Voice International (KVI) London, have unanimously passed a resolution to allow international human rights organisations to visit both sides of Kashmir.
This decision was taken during a Kashmir Parties Conference convened by the KVI in Luton, UK, under the theme Kashmir Conflict- A way forward for an achievable solution
A five-member committee was framed to contact and consult different Kashmiri alliances, parties and groups in the UK to frame an agreed common minimum program (CMP) to be pursued together.
The conference calls for all human rights violations in the Kashmir Valley to be stopped and perpetrators of such violations to be brought to justice. The human rights violations in Pakistan-held Kashmir should also come to an end. International human rights organisations should be allowed to visit both sides of the state, read a statement issued by the KVI after the conclusion of the conference.
The parties noted that all draconian laws affecting the dignity and freedom of Kashmiris should be withdrawn and that democratic rights and space for political activities should be restored.
