The protest was led by Senior Vice President, Nasir Hamid Khan,” he said.
The members, however, held their sit-in at Regal Chowk, read the statement.
“As a sign of solidarity and to collectively condemn naked dance of human right violations, the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry today joins and supports people of Kashmir Valley to observe this peaceful protest. Members including executive, affiliated associations and office bearers are present at this venue and in one voice urge all right thinking people of the world to prevent repetition of violations, which has already taken heavy toll of our people,” Senior Vice President, Nasir Hamid Khan read out the KCCI statement.
The statement said that ‘every killing, every hartal, every strike and every large scale disturbance demands and calls for the resolution of the dispute of our State.’
“The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry calls upon human rights organizations, wherever they be, to report events which shake the conscience of the society and bring them to the notice of world community. Repetitive killings of our innocent people breach levels of tolerance. It is high time that the guns are silenced,” it said. (KNS)
