Geneva: In an acknowledgement for India, activists and journalists from Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), along with European Parliamentarians and foreign experts on Monday lauded the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution.
An event titled ‘Jammu and Kashmir: Sifting facts from fiction’ was held at Geneva Press Club on the sidelines of the ongoing 43rd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
Former Member of European Parliament, Nathan Gill, praised the Indian government’s decision and said, ” The Union Territory has seen a new dawn and people here have seen themselves as equal citizens in India.”
“The abrogation of Article 370 will eventually lead to the people of Pakistan occupied Kashmir demanding more and more for their rights and for them to be reintegrated for the rest of the Indian community,” he said.
During the event, a documentary was screened that exposed Pakistan how the country invaded Kashmir and illegally occupied the region. In another video, it highlighted the way Pakistan is working on giving a communal colour by spreading fake news.
