The speak­ers of the sem­i­nar or­ga­nized by the Mir­pur Univer­sity of Science and Tech­nol­ogy said that the BJPRSS govern­ment was in­tend­ing to im­pose Hindu ide­ol­ogy in oc­cu­pied Kash­mir and oblit­er­ate Mus­lim cul­ture and civ­i­liza­tion in the ter­ri­tory.

Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah and Dr Ghu­lam Nabi Fai in their pa­pers high­lighted the gross hu­man rights vi­o­la­tions com­mit­ted by In­dian troops in oc­cu­pied Kash­mir. They stressed the need to set­tle the lin­ger­ing dis­pute through peace­ful means of ne­go­ti­a­tions for peace, se­cu­rity and de­vel­op­ment of the South Asia re­gion.Mean­while, in oc­cu­pied Kash­mir, the author­i­ties have put all top Hur­riyet lead­ers in­clud­ing Syed Ali Gi­lani, Mir­waiz Umar Fa­rooq, Muham­mad Yasin Ma­lik, Shab­bir Ah­mad Shah, Muham­mad Ashraf Sehrai, Nay­eem Ah­mad Khan, Raja Mer­a­jud­din Kal­wal, Altaf Ahmed Shah and Ayaz Ak­bar un­der house ar­rest or be­hind the bars.
