Kashmir Awareness society is a student society dedicated to promoting and raising awareness of the Kashmiri cause;
and working with respect to, and in the interests of, self-determination of the Kashmiri people.
We aim to do this by:
-Highlighting the issues surrounding the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, including the origins/history of the conflict, and human rights abuses carried out by occupying forces on behalf of India and Pakistan.
-Promoting a non-partisan approach to resolving the conflict by focusing on the Kashmiri peoples’ need for self-determination.
-Bringing perspective to the issue of Kashmir within larger historical contexts and narratives.
-Collaborating with like-minded interest and awareness groups to build a broad based awareness movement.
-Bringing elements of Kashmiri culture, history and heritage to members/students.
