Protests held by Kashmiris outside Indian consulate in UK

MUZAFFARABAD: Protests were held by Kashmiris outside Indian consulate in UK, media has reported.

The Tehreek-e-Kashmir (TeK) United Kingdom organised on Friday a protest outside the Indian consulate in Birmingham to condemn the rising human rights abuses in occupied Kashmir.

Besides TeK, other political and religious parties also joined the protest.

Protesters were carrying placards and banners inscribed with slogans “stop human rights violations in Indian occupied Kashmir”.

The demonstrators demanded an end to Indian occupation of Kashmir, and a right to self-determination in accordance with the UN charter.

President TeK UK Fahim Kiyani, while addressing the protesters, said that the recent escalation of hate and violence against Kashmiris in the occupied valley was deplorable.

He said thousands of Kashmiri families were forced to leave their homes, businesses, and their vehicles were burnt in broad daylight.
