4 views

Thousands of protesters on Tuesday assembled at Parliament Square in London and marched to the Indian High Commission to stage a strong protest against India for committing gross violations of human rights in occupied Kashmir since Modi regime revoked special autonomy of the Himalayan region.

Several protesters handed banners against Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and flags of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) to the statue of Gandhi in front of Indian High Commission as stringent curfew imposed by Modi-led Hindu nationalist government entered its 30th day.

To support Kashmiris’ freedom movement from Indian occupation and express solidarity with oppressed people of Kashmir, AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider Khan and opposition leader Chaudhry Yaseen led the demonstration to the Indian High Commission.

A large number of women and children also participated in the rally while demonstrators chanted full-throat slogans against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Protesters carrying placards and waving Kashmir flags chanted slogans of “Terrorist terrorist, Modi is a terrorist!” and “Hum chheen kay lain gay – azaadi!” (We will take by force — freedom!). Some protesters also reportedly hurled eggs and tomatoes at the high commission s building.

A heavy contingent of police was deployed at the scene to prevent any violence.
