MUZAFFARABAD: A large number of people protested here on Monday against human rights violations in India-held Kashmir.

A rally was held at the Ambore refugee camp which coincided with the address of Indian minister Sushma Swaraj at the UNGA in New York.

Participants raised slogans against India for perpetuating the worst form of atrocities on innocent Kashmiris who were demanding freedom. They were holding banners and placards criticising the brutalities of Indian security forces. `The cycle of killings and funerals must end, one banner read.

Representatives of various groups addressed the gathering which demanded that India`s Modi government stop killing, maiming and incarcerating helpless Kashmiris for their demand of self-determination.

Hailing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for unequivocally reflecting views and sentiments of Kashmiri people in his address to the UNGA, the speakers criticised India and said the UN should not have given its floor to the representative of a country that had its hands stained with the blood of innocent people without an iota of remorse.

The UN should give up its `criminal negligence` and play its role of providing justice to the people of Indiaheld Kashmir, they said.
