Birmingham, September 01, 2019 (PPI-OT): Hundreds of Kashmiris and their sympathizers held a protest demonstration in Birmingham against the Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir. The protesters on the occasion strongly condemned the August 05 move of the Indian government, scrapping Article 370 of its Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
The rally, which was held in New Street, was once again over the issue of scrapping of the Article 370 by Modi government. Zubaida Khan of the “Daughters of Kashmir” group, said: “India has been violating the human rights of the people of occupied Kashmir since August 5.
She said, “We request our local MPs to bring the IOK matter forward in the parliament and the United Nations General Assembly so that an end could be brought to the Indian brutalities in the territory.”
She urged the UK government to highlight the Kashmir dispute and resolve the humanitarian crisis in the occupied territory so that the world could be conveyed a message that UK is a country which supports humanity and justice. The protesters on the occasion chanted slogans like “Freedom now” and “Shame on you”.
