The Legal Forum for Kashmir (LFK) is an international, non-violent, and legal organization. Its members are indigenous people of the occupied territory in Jammu and Kashmir. The aim of the organization is to defend the political, social and human rights of Kashmiris and to promote the UN sanctioned Right of Self-Determination.
In today’s world, the notion of conflict resolution necessitates that those who continue to be denied their rights or remain excluded be given an opportunity to present their case. Unfortunately, it remains the case that Kashmiris themselves continue to be marginalized, even invibilise, in most discussions or narratives on the conflict. LFK has, therefore, been established to fill the gap, providing an international forum through which its members can become effective participants and contributors in the international community.
LFK works to address the consequences of marginalization, working with its members.
WHAT WE DO
LFK is an independent organization that advocates, nationally and internationally, the Right of Self-Determination and highlight human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir through legal research, documentation, and capacity- building to address, under international law, the violations of individual and collective rights of Kashmiris.
*Conducts research, documentation, and collection of data on Human Rights violations in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
*Access to, and involvement of, global legal and civil organizations to address the growing injustice in Occupied Kashmir. We are open for international co-operation and joint projects on Kashmir.
*To protect and assist the victims of conflict, LFK seeks to ensure compliance with obligations of International Human Rights Laws and International Humanitarian Laws which remain in effect during conflicts.
Make an impact
As we know, there is an emerging international consensus about the pressing need to demonstrate the commitment to respecting human rights, most notably represented by the “Protect, Respect and Remedy” framework and the UN Guiding Principles. For achieving such targets, individuals can both cause and contribute to protect the human rights impacts through its own activities. Legal forum for Kashmir invites individuals and organizations for collaboration(s) to work towards documenting the human rights abuses, war crimes and other forms of injustices perpetrated against the besieged population of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The main of the organization is to create a database and lobby for bringing forth the plight of Kashmir and unravel the brutal violent face of Indian state and its doings in Kashmir.
