IAKF sponsored a table at the Mayor level to show its support for political activism within the Indo-American community. IAKF Director, Dr. Rahul Pandit, stated that the Kashmiri Pandit community has “long been active in raising awareness of our socio-political troubles during the last 15 years of violence in Kashmir. IAPAC and other organizations have provided important support for our objectives, and we therefore are giving support in turn for them.” IAKF is a national organization established in 1991 to inform the world community of the oppression against Kashmiri Pandits that led to their forced exile from Kashmir due to the influx of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism. IAKF wishes to raise awareness of the human rights violations suffered by the Pandit community, many of whom are still living in makeshift 'refugee' camps in Jammu, India. The organization seeks the return of Kashmiri Pandits to the Kashmir valley with guaranteed security and freedom to exercise their religious faith and cultural way of life without fear or intrusion. IAKF provides reports to the U.S. Administration, U.S. Congress, and several of Washington D.C.’s policy think tanks. IAKF has worked with many individuals representing various organizations throughout the country, including the national USINPAC—U.S. India Political Action Committee.
