In the keynote discussion, Dr Kamrul Islam said that the Kashmir crisis started from the year 1948 but the world leaders are not taking any step to solve the problem. Besides, both the nations (Kashmir and Bangladesh) have much in common. China, on the other hand, wants to assert its authority in South Asia through oppressing the minority Muslims in Uighur. Dr Kamrul Islam demanded the UN to take action to protect the human rights of Uighur people.
