Rally calling for ‘independence of Kashmir’ to take place in London

Shafaqna (Shia International News Association)

A “Million March” is to take place on October 26 which expects to see thousands of people rally through central London in protest against India’s supposed “human rights violations in Kashmir”.

The rally will begin in London’s Trafalgar Square and end at Prime Minister David Cameron’s office at 10 Downing Street where a petition would be submitted asking Britain to push India into resolving the Kashmir impasse with Pakistan.

A similar anti-India protest rally has also been planned at Brussels following day on October 27.

India voiced serious concern against the planned march with foreign minister Sushma Swaraj asking British foreign secretary Philip Hammond to stem the anti-India march.

Swaraj who met Hammond for their first bilateral meeting said UK can’t allow anti-India sentiment to thrive in UK.

Swaraj also brought up the issue during her meeting later with deputy prime minister Nick Clegg.

UK however made it clear to India that Kashmir is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan for the two countries to solve together.
