Pakistan seek another diplomatic victory against India over Occupied Kashmir lockdown
*BIRMINGHAM, UK: **Pakistan seek another diplomatic victory against India over Occupied Kashmir lockdown.*
Members of Britain’s Conservative Party on Saturday vowed to raise their voice against the ongoing oppression of the people in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) in the British Parliament.
Speaking at a conference organised by the Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK at Dudley Council Chamber in Birmingham, Conservative Party politician Marco Longhi said that the people of the occupied valley should be given their right of self-determination.
“Indian oppression in occupied Kashmir should end and the Kashmiris should be given their due rights,” Longhi said. “Will not only talk about Indian clampdown in the region inside the British parliament only but also outside it,” he added.
The parliamentarian further added that it is a humanitarian issue which should be resolved according to the will of Kashmiri people.
“Respecting the wishes of voters in Dudley, I would expedite efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue permanently,” Longhi vowed.
Speaking on the occasion, Altaf Ahmad Bhat, the president of Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM), said that the protest staged against Indian atrocities by “100 British-based Kashmiris and Pakistanis holds greater importance than a crowd of 100,000 in Islamabad and Muzaffarabad”.
