There has been widespread revulsion at Indian crimes in Kashmir. Over the past two weeks, there has again been an escalation in violence by the Indian army of occupation against innocent Kashmiris. Hundreds of Canadians of all backgrounds also added their voices to condemn the violence and brutality unleashed by the Indian occupation army on the Kashmiri people. A rally was held outside the Indian Consulate July 16 to condemn India.1
In what must be a first in Canadian history, the Canadian Peace Alliance (CPA), an umbrella group of more than 550 organizations across Canada unanimously approved a resolution presented by the Friends of Kashmir calling for referendum in Kashmir.
