Pakistan seeks diplomatic victory against India at the British Parliament
*LONDON: Pakistan seeks diplomatic victory against India at the British Parliament.*
Two more British lawmakers have raised their voice against New Delhi’s brutal restrictions including a 77-day long curfew in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The British members of parliament (MPs) also extended their full support for the Kashmiris right of self-determination while addressing a conference staged to highlight the Kashmir issue on Sunday, Express Tribune has reported.
Speaking on the occasion, MP Matt Rodda said that it is unfortunate that people of Kashmir are under continuous curfew for the last 77 days. He vowed to continue becoming the voice of the Kashmiris.
“In this era of technology, mobile phones and internet are the need of the hour. I was shocked to learn that nine million people in IOK have no access to internet for the last two and a half months ever since the Indian government abrogated special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5,” MP Rodda added.

MP Dr Phillips Lee, while addressing the conference, said that the world needs to listen to Kashmiris who demand their right of self-determination. He also urged the United Nations to implement its resolutions to settle the issue once and for all.
Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Sardar Masood Khan, also present on the occasion, thanked the British lawmakers for supporting the Kashmir cause. He also made an appeal to the world community to come forward and ensure peace in South Asia.
