BRUSSELS: Kashmir Council-EU is striving to enhance awareness about the plight of the people of occupied Kashmir who are living in an extremely miserable life in their homeland. Their homeland, called Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most beautiful and resourceful places on the earth but most of its parts are under occupation of Indian authorities for last 76 years.The people of occupied Kashmir demand the end of occupation of their motherland by India which has constructed a large military buildup that makes this paradise the biggest military zone in anywhere on the earth. This military has been awarded with the impunity to kill, torture, rape, demolish, disappear and even blind the people on different baseless pretexts.The Indian military is armed not only with heavy armaments but also with some of the worst black laws that have deprived the people of Kashmir of their most basic human rights. 'We are working at three levels; at the level of EU institutions, at the level of individual governments and at the level of people and their representative civil society organizations.'Our activities include seminars, conferences, lobbying, cultural activities, training workshops, exhibitions, signature campaigns, demonstrations and protests.
