Largest ever Anti India protest being held in London, Scotland Yard on high alert
LONDON - A spokesman of Scotland Yard said it was aware of the planned anti India protest at noon on 15 August and had policing arrangements in place.
Intelligence reports suggest that the number of protesters will be in thousands – making it the biggest ever protest against India in Britain – but the police refused to discuss the number of police on duty.
A source shared that more than 200 police officers will be on duty to maintain the crowd and prevent any road blockings and clashes.
The 15 August protest will be joined by diaspora communities from all political parties, uniting them rarely for the issue of occupied Kashmir. Two pro-Khalistan Sikh groups and secular Indian organisations will be in attendance at the protest.
In a statement, Prime Minister Imran Khan link adviser, who will be himself attending the protest, said it was moral obligation of all to speak up for the Kashmiri brothers and sisters, who were living in difficult circumstances under the Nazi like regime of Narendra Modi.
