Kashmiri, Sikh community protests as Modi addresses UN Summit

UNITED NATIONS: Hundreds of angry members of Kashmiri and Sikh community based in the United States held a large protest in NewYork as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the UN Summit on Sustainable Development.


The Kashmiri community in its protest drew attention of the world community over their plight and the gross human rights violations by the Indian authorities.

A statement from the Kashmir Mission in US said it is time to remind the world leaders that Kashmir is recognised by the United Nations as a disputed territory whose status is yet to be determined.

The statement said because of the obduracy of India to give the people of Kashmir the right of self determination, Kashmir has become the largest military concentration in the world.
