He said that humanity was bleeding in Indian IIOJK but the prosperous world is a silent spectator.

Shehryar Afridi said, demographic changes are taking place in the IIOJK and 4.1 million new domiciles have been issued to non-Kashmiris brought from mainland India which is a violation of the Indian constitution.

The Chairman Kashmir Committee said that the Indian regime was implementing genocide tools and was not providing medical facilities to the freedom-loving Kashmiris jailed. He said that Illegally occupational regime of India was violating the basic rights of freedom of speech and any Kashmiri who writes anything on digital media, was pushed behind bars under notorious UAPA laws.

He said while humanity is bleeding in the IIOJK, festivity, development and freedom are the order of the day.

He said all the political parties took part in the elections recently held in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and recently, Kashmir Premier League has been launched to help showcase the talent of the Kashmiri youth.

He said that it was not about Kashmir and rather it was about the suffering humanity which needed assistance from the OIC and the United Nations.

The Chairman Kashmir Committee said Pakistan has fought war against terrorism to save the world from this menace and have given unprecedented sacrifices and the world needs to value the sacrifices given by the brave Pakistani nation. He urged the UN and the prosperous world to wake up from the deep slumber and spring into action to help the sufferings of the people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

He asked the delegates to apprise the Committee on the steps taken on the OIC delegation report on human rights violations released in year 2017.
