AIKS felicitated Ms Shakun Malik, President of its affiliate organisation, KOA, USA, on Sunday Sept 15, 2019, while she was on a brief visit to India. The meeting took place at AIKS headquarter at New Delhi and was attended by Col Tej Tikoo, President, besides Sh Vijay Kashkari, Vice President, and Maharaj Pajan, General Secretary. During the meeting both organisations discussed the emerging geo-political situation following abrogation of articles 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution by the government of India on 5th August 2019.
Both organizations decided to strengthen their existing bonds and jointly work together to counter the wrong and incorrect narrative regarding recent developments in India, concerning Jammu and Kashmir State. They also decided to counter the disinformation campaign launched by vested interests at the international level about our exodus from Kashmir in 1989-90. They decided to put in renewed efforts to correct narrative, particularly in the wake of the Aug 5, 2019, announcements made by the Government of India.
It was also agreed to enhance the involvement of youth and mobilizing them to work for community affairs and preservation of our rich cultural heritage, so unique to our community, which is under serious threat in our exodus.
