Islamabad: The Friends of Kashmir International (FoKI) organized a webinar to commemorate the 8th martyrdom anniversary of Burhan Muzaffar Wani, highlighting his role and the ongoing struggles in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).



According to Kashmir Media Service, the webinar, attended by youths from Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and IIOJK, celebrated Wani as a pivotal figure in the Kashmiri freedom movement. Speakers at the event, including FoKI Vice Chairman Abdul Hameed Lone, emphasized Wani’s influential role and urged the international community to recognize and resolve the Kashmir dispute.
