Birmingham: A protest was held at the general consulate of India against the murder of innocent Kashmiris under fake encounters. The protestors demanded an immediate end to the occupation of Kashmir and called for a plebiscite for the Kashmiri people’s right of self determination.
Protestors raised concerns over the granting of domicile to over five million non-Kashmiris, paving the way for settler colonisation of Kashmir.
The protest was organised by Tehreek e Kashmir UK, an advocacy group which campaigns for the fundamental human rights for the Kashmiri people. The protest was held under the leadership of Raja Faheem Kayani, president of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK.
During the occasion President TeK UK Fahim Kayani said: “Fake Encounters of Kashmir and Not returning the bodies to their families and burying them in unmarked graves in Jungles (Deserted areas) must be condemned. In the last fake encounter of Altaf Ahmed Bhat and Dr Mudassir Gul and other Kashmiris have exposed the catch and kill policy of India , After continuous protest by the families Altaf Ahmad Bhat and Dr Mudassir Gul in severe cold got the attention on social and main stream media which compelled the Indian army to dug their graves and hand over the bodies to their family for proper burial .”
He further said: “Modi’s fascist ideology, which exists as a colonial and racist endeavour, and his Policies are threat to world peace”
