Various activities such as rallies, seminars, and conferences are held on this day across the world to remind the UN that it must implement its relevant resolutions to settle the Kashmir dispute to save the Kashmiris from the Indian brutalities.
UN asked to intervene to save South Asia

Kashmir dispute as per its Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
APHC General Secretary Molvi Bashir Ahmad stated on the occasion of right to Self-Determination Day today. He urged the UN to ensure the grant of the right to self-determination to the Kashmiri people like it ensured it in East Timor and Southern Sudan. He pointed out that any illegal and immoral action by India cannot impact these resolutions. He said that the silence maintained by the World Body over the sufferings of the Kashmiri people was beyond comprehension.
Molvi Bashir Ahmad said that Indian atrocities were going on in occupied Kashmir and people were sacrificing their lives on a daily basis but the international community seems helpless vis-a-vis India. He called upon the world to hold a referendum in Kashmir in the light of the said UN resolution, adding that Kashmiris were losing one generation after another in pursuit of the same right.
