LONDON: Barrister Imran Hussain, Member of British Parliament, hosted the Foreign Minister of Pakistan, joined by the President of Kashmir and other key stakeholders, in Parliament to mark Kashmir Solidarity Day.

On the occasion, Imran Hussain and others had shown their support and unity with the people of Kashmir and remembered those innocent men, women and children who have died at the hands of security forces.

“Those in Indian Occupied Kashmir live in some of the most brutal and oppressive conditions in the world, with disproportionate force and grave human rights abuses, including the use of live ammunition and mutilating pellets against civilians, regularly inflicted upon Kashmiris without reason or accountability.

“As long as the Indian Armed Forces Special Powers Act, remains in force, these acts of savagery will continue to be carried out and those responsible for human rights abuses will escape punishment for their crimes.

“This Kashmir Solidarity Day must be the last in which Kashmiris live in constant fear and the international community must do more, and in particular, I discussed with the Foreign Minister and President how we can move towards a better future for Kashmiris in which their birthright to determine their own destiny can be fulfilled.”
