London - Protests against Indian atrocities in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir were held in several cities of United Kingdom including Birmingham, Luton , Oldham, Derby, Nelson, Bradford, Dewsbury to show solidarity with the oppressed people of IIOJK who have been living under illegal brutal Indian occupation for more than seven decades.

The protests were held on the call of Tehreek-e-Kashmir UK.

British Kashmiris gathered outside various mosques across the UK after Friday prayers to show solidarity with the oppressed people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

President TeK Fahim Kayani UK led a protest outside the Indian consulate Birmingham where various political leaders, human rights activists and community leaders participated to chant pro-freedom slogans. They also called for the withdrawal of Indian troops to end the atrocities being committed in the occupied territory.

The demonstrators were carrying placards to expose Indian atrocities committed by the Indian army in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

In his address on the occasion, Fahim Kayani said that last week more than seven Kashmiris were killed by the Indian occupational army in occupied Kashmir. These killings have become a regular occurrence.

Furthermore, since Kashmir was stripped of its statehood in 2019 the situation has worsened for the Kashmiris enduring the occupation.

Kayani further said “Modi is a symbol of fascism and his links to RSS must not go unnoticed by the International community. Hindutva Fascism is replica of Neo-Nazi Fascism.”

Stuart Richardson from Stop the War Coalition said that India can’t call itself a democratic country because Indian Consulate Birmingham has refused to accept a Kashmir petition from the demonstrators who wanted to register their concerns about illegal Indian occupation of Kashmir to the Indian government. India has become an authoritarian state which is suppressing the basic human right to self determination of Kashmiris by their military might.
