LONDON: Barrister Imran Hussain (MP and Shadow Law Minister) while speaking at the British Parliament held that as a permanent member of UNSC UK had a clear responsibility for securing peace in Kashmir and between India and Pakistan.
“The escalating violence between India and Pakistan is deeply worrying and I am gravely concerned about the very serious threats that are posed by any further escalation in violence. The international community must make every effort to de-escalate the situation immediately.
“At the heart of this conflict between India and Pakistan is the issue of Kashmir, a region home to people who have already seen too many wars and too much conflict, and who suffer every day from brutal human rights abuses at the hands of the Indian Security Forces.
“The status of Kashmir and its people must be secured and guaranteed, and I am clear that the only solution is through diplomatic and peaceful negotiations, never through violence.
“As a permanent member of the UN Security Council and with ethical, moral and historical ties to the region, the UK has a clear responsibility for securing peace in Kashmir and between India and Pakistan, and today in Parliament I urged the Foreign Office Minister to move away from gesture politics, and towards fulfilling our international obligations by actively supporting the birthright of the sons and daughters of Kashmir to self-determination.”

Are journalists being exploited to harm civil-military ties?
LONDON: Savants insinuate that RAW has indulged in 5th Generation Warfare through exploiting journalists and intellectuals who are inclined towards progressive movement and call themselves liberals.
Since UK-based intellectual Aisha Siddiqa and self-exiled journalist, Taha Siddiqui both contribute to The Quint and The Print* known for publishing controversial pieces, some believe that their work is being wrongly exploited.
Numerous instances of progressive intellectuals, writers and journalists could be quoted from the annals who blamed Pakistan Army for not confining to garrisons or defending land borders and undesirable involvement of ISI in political affairs.
Many believe the present aggressive attitude of progressives could harm the civil-military ties. Then there are those who say that in the garb of diplomats, spooks are exploiting journalists in order to create misconception against Pakistan.
*’The Print’ was founded by Indian Journalist Shekar Gupta and ‘The Quint’ was initiated by Raghav Bahl & Ritu Kapur.
