Politicians in Europe are joining the growing International Chorus on Kashmir as pressure mounts on India for the actions committed by its occupation Army in the disputed region. The latest European Politician to speak on Indian brutalities in Kashmir is Julie Ward, Member of European Parliament from Britain.
Ms. Ward flew from London to Geneva to Join Kashmir activists at the 34th session of UN Human Rights Council. Kashmir came into spotlight when the International Muslim Women’s Union organized a sideline event in the un building where MEP Julie Ward was a key speaker.
Ward criticized India’s violent crackdown in Kashmir and offered her support to the families of innocent young men and women who were killed by Indian Army inside their houses and those killed during peaceful protests on the streets of the disputed region.
Ward recalled that during her visit to Indian Occupied Kashmir, she met with women who were humiliated and raped by soldiers of the Indian Army inside their homes and in front of their male relatives.
She said that is why Kashmiris run away from their homeland and take Refuge on other side of the ceasefire line.
A group of European Parliament Members are preparing a global campaign focused on the conditions of Kashmiri Women and Children.
