LONDON: Thousands of the British Pakistani and Kashmiri community held a big peaceful demonstration outside Indian High Commission London on Saturday afternoon to mark India’s Independence day as ‘Black day’ which was also joined by Indian Sikh community.
The participants expressed their full solidarity with the defenceless and oppressed people of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), who were struggling to achieve their inalienable right to self determination and freedom from Indian yoke for the last over seven decades.
The participants were carrying flags of Pakistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Khalistan strongly condemned the Indian forces atrocities being perpetrated against innocent and defenceless people of IIOJK to crush their indigenous struggle to the right of self determination granted to them by the United Nation Security Council.
The participants of the rally urged the international community including the United Kingdom to play their vital role to stop Indian massive human rights violation in IIOJK and immediately implement the UN Security Council resolutions on Kashmir to enable the Kashmiris to decide their future destiny through UN sponsored plebiscite.
The participants rejected the Indian governments scrapping of Aricle 370 and Article 35 A in IIOJK and
termed it an attempt to alter the demographic structure of the occupied region.
They also condemned the complete blackout in occupied Kashmir by India and called upon the international community including the United Kingdom (UK) to exert pressure on India to immediately end the siege of the occupied valley by the brutal Indian occupation forces.

The participant called for the implementing UN Resolution 47 on Kashmir, saying, the world should impose economic sanctions against India for genocide of Kashmiris, Kashmir is bleeding and hold India accountable for killing Kashmiris.
“We, we will resist India everywhere in the world, we demand plebiscite in Kashmir and never rest till we get it, Unresolved Kashmir is posing a threat of nuclear war and UN should pay attention to the issue”, they demanded.
The Sikh participants on the occasion hoisted Khalistan flag in front of Indian High Commission London.
