Addressing the Conference, Hausmann said, after listening to the Kashmiri Diaspora, Patricia promised they will do their utmost to make people aware of wrong doing in Kashmir.

Riffat Wani said, “for the past three months, the Jammu and Kashmir has been cut off from the rest of the World even from India.

There is a complete Lockdown, Media gag and all communications system is blocked.

Kashmiris are facing acute shortages of food and medicines and people have no access to Hospitals.”

Kashmir Council EU Chairman, Ali Raza Syed said, “it is 105th day Today since the helpless Kashmiris in Occupied Kashmir have lost their most fundamental Freedoms, basic human rights and civil liberties. A population of eight million people has been put under House arrest.

They are living under harsh conditions without even the most basic and inalienable rights such as the right to life, right to education and healthcare, right to move, right to practice their religion or even right to bury their loved ones with dignity.”
