Local Kashmiris and their supporters rallied at Sydney Town Hall on April 22 to protest against the deaths of six Kashmiris in Indian-occupied Kashmir and other human rights violations.
Kashmir is the most heavily militarised zone in the world. Thousands of innocent lives have been lost and untold miseries perpetrated on a small nation because of their desire to exercise their rights of self-determination, as enshrined in International law.
Outraged by the deaths, the Kashmiri diaspora organised a worldwide candlelight vigil to remember the innocent victims and pray for the safety of Kashmiris. Led by a young generation without political affiliations, vigils were held in the US, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and India.
