Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society of Kashmir (JKCCS) on Saturday urged that the authorities to lift the travel ban on Khurram Parvez, as it is believed that this measure has also been taken against him for his human rights work.
"Guarantee in all circumstances that all human rights defenders in India are able to carry out their legitimate humn rights activities without fear of reprisals and free of all restrictions," they added.
Khurram is the Chairperson of the Asian Federation against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD), a collective of 13 non-governmental organizations from ten Asian countries, that campaign on the issue of enforced disappearances.
He is also the Programme Coordinator of the Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society (JKCCS), which is a coalition of various campaign, research and advocacy organisations based in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, which monitor and investigate human right abuses.
He was scheduled to brief the 33rd session of the United Nation Human Rights Council regarding the latest acts of violence in Kashmir, following the killing of the Kashmiri separatist leader Burhan Wani on 8 July 2016.
