London, November 17, 2020 (PPI-OT): An All Parties Conference organized by Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK in London has reaffirmed the pledge to continue work with coordinated approach to expose Indian atrocities at the international level. The conference was held in the backdrop of indiscriminate shelling by the Indian army on the ceasefire line which killed several civilians, injured 31 and destroyed livestock and houses worth millions of rupees. Representatives of all UK political parties and Human Rights groups participated in the All Parties Conference. The Conference was chaired by Fahim Kayani, President Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK and followed by guest speakers.
Fahim Kayani stated that he was saddened to hear British citizen Cllr Mushtaq Mughal’s House was destroyed by shelling of Indian army. The UK Foreign office should take urgent and firm action against India due to destruction of British citizens’ houses. He said the purpose of the All Parties conference was to adapt a coordinated approach to expose Indian atrocities in IOJ and K and along the ceasefire line. “We must demand British and European Parliaments to impose economical sanctions on India for committing human rights violations without any fear.” He said that Indian army had no respect for humanity as they recently targeted schools too where children cried loud out of fear.
Shadow Minister Afzal Khan said all political parties, British Pakistanis and Kashmiris must ask MPs to write to the Foreign Secretary on grave human situation in IOJ and K and the recent atrocities on the Line of Control.
