Welcoming the EU’s parliament document, Chairman KC-EU said, there should be an international investigation into human rights violations in IHK specially EU should play its role for prevention of the violations.
All the criminals involved in human rights violations in IHK should also be trailed through the international court of law, Ali Raza Syed maintained.
The international investigation into severe violence in IHK was a long-lasting demand of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and for that we appreciate the struggle of people working for protection and highlighting of human rights in IHK including Mr Pervaiz Imroz Advocate.
Chairman KC-EU also lauded the work of European personalities and human rights organisation including Ms Marjan Locus for highlighting the issue of Kashmir for a long time. He also appreciated many of the MEPs including Dr Sajjad Karim for their long standing support to the human rights in IHK.

It is important to mention that the United Nations in its first-ever human rights report on Jammu and Kashmir last month has called for an urgent need to address past and ongoing human rights violations and abuses and deliver justice to all people in Kashmir.
The main focus of the 49-page report released by the United Nations Human Rights Office in Geneva, remained on the human rights situation in the Indian occupied Kashmir from July 2016 to April 2018.
