Plight of Kashmiris: US lawmaker says it now is a matter of urgency

Last week, US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar visited the Line of Control (LoC) in AJK, and met the President, Prime Minister, cabinet members, and leaders of political parties.

Omar said she had always taken up the questions of Kashmir and Palestine in the Congress but “I had not had the opportunity to visit the place in person. It was incredibly awful to meet the people firsthand and ask them how they want to be in partnership with me as a lawmaker and advocate of (the) human rights.”
