Honourable Dr. Manmohan Singh
Prime Minister of
C/o The Indian Embassy
Respected Dr Manmohan Singh Aadab,
Re: Human Rights Violations and Killings of unarmed youth in
This brief protest note is addressed to your Excellency on behalf of Kashmiri people living in
to reaffirm our strong resolve to support the struggle of Finland Kashmir’s for right of self determination. We express complete solidarity with our compatriots under Indian occupation, and strongly reject ’s erroneous stance on India Kashmir and occupation of an unwilling populace.
Our protest today at the Indian Embassy Helsinki Finland on the occasion when every day Indian Army is killing unarmed Kashmiri youth, is an attempt to remind the world community and your government to honour the sentiments of Kashmiri people and also honour the commitments that India had made to the people of Kashmir on the future status of the forcibly divided territory.
Your government rules
Kashmir with an iron grip supported by an occupation force of well in excess of 800,000army and paramilitary troops. Over the past twenty years these occupation forces have killed more than one hundred thousand innocent men, women and children, while thousands of Kashmiri young men have disappeared without trace after having been abducted by military and civil authorities during this period. Over the past month ,around 2 dozen Kashmir youth have been killed by Indian army who were peacefully protesting. It certainly ill behoves a mature democracy like particularly if it wishes to seek a solution in India- Kashmir- that it is intolerant towards political forces which, disagree with its stance over Kashmir.
While JKLF’s ideology is unambiguous on reunified, independent and secular future
Kashmir, we’ve always advocated Indo-Pak rapprochement. Its being part of a solution rather than conflict which is what we have espoused over the years. However unlawful killings of our youth, arbitrary arrests and disappearances of Kashmir’s hardly inspire confidence in ’s sincerity for peaceful way forward. India
