Kashmir digital campaign in UK warns against continued relations with India

LONDON – A digital campaign was launched in the UK to warn the British government and international community against continuing relations and trade with India which is involved in war crimes in Kashmir.

Led by Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK, pro-Kashmir, pro-human rights slogans were broadcast on the digital vans in British capital London which also marked Kashmir Solidarity Day.

The van drove around British Parliament, diplomatic missions of India, US, Canada, France, China and others.

“Trade with India is not fine when human rights are on decline,” read one slogan, while another said that implementation of UN resolutions in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir was the “only solution” to free the disputed region. Emphasizing that Kashmiris have rejected India in the past and continue to do so today, Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK leader Fahim Kayani said: “running digital campaigns to highlight struggle for right to self-determination of Kashmiris is a peaceful way to end occupation by India in Kashmir.”

International law and UN Charter grants this right to everyone but “India has been suppressing this peaceful demonstration by beleaguered people in the occupied Kashmir which is blatant violation.”

Kashmiris, Kayani said, “are not demanding anything alien.”

“The US, the UK, France, which are part of P5 nations at the UN, know it pretty well and must uphold rule of law when it comes to Kashmir,” said Kayani.

Regretting that geopolitical interests were given preference over respect to UN Charter, Kayani warned any delay of ending Indian occupation of Kashmir “may result in situation which would be beyond our control as the UN-designated region is surrounded by three nuclear-armed nations.”

Kayani paid tributes to sacrifices of Kashmiris and said: “We will never forget Kashmiri political prisoners.”

“India might have imposed graveyard silence in occupied Kashmir, but we, Kashmiri diaspora and our conscious allies, will never let world forget about Kashmir and our struggle for freedom from India.”
