An Insight on the Kashmir conflict: Ireland’s largest conference to be held in Portlaoise

Naeem Iqbal

Ireland’s biggest conference on the Kashmir conflict is taking place in Laois later this month.

Organised by Naeem Iqbal the conference will take place in the Midland Park Hotel, Portlaoise, from 1-3pm on November 23.

This will be the biggest event ever held on the Kashmir conflict in the history of the Republic of Ireland.

Its purpose is to show support and consolidation to the people who are affected by this ongoing crisis and to act as an informative meeting on the topic.

The Ambassador of Pakistan to Ireland, Mr Shuja Alam, TD & Chairman Public Accounts Committee, Mr Sean Fleming, Mayor Willie Aird and other elected members of the County Council in Laois will attend this conference, along with the leaders of Asian, African, European and middle eastern communities.

The aim of this conference is to send a clear message across that the political and communities’ leadership of Ireland regardless of background, faith, sex and colour, demands the human rights of
innocent men, women and children, and that electronic, print and social media to be restored.

On August 5 2019, the Indian government revoked the special status accorded to Indian Occupied Kashmir in its constitution, the most far-reaching political move on the disputed region in nearly 70 years.

The Kashmir valley is placed under lockdown with all communications lines cut and political leaders placed under house arrest.

The world capitals and the international human rights groups condemned the move and are demanding the release of all political leaders, restoration of media and free movement of journalists and the general public with immediate effect.

This conference will be an addition to serious of efforts being made all over the world to show support and solidarity with the innocent men, women and children living in siege for weeks.

Due to limited capacity, pre-booking to attend this conference is required by phone or by email.
