45 UK MPs urge UN Secretary General to intervene in Kashmir


LONDON: In a show of support for the oppressed Kashmiris undergoing a complete blackout by India after illegal annexation of the state of Kashmir, over 45 members of the parliament (MPs) from UK and peers have co-signed a letter written by MP Warrington South Faisal Rashid addressed to the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The letter terms the unilateral Indian decision a direct attack on the political status of Kashmir and its right to self-governance.  It says revocation of Article 370 would have far-reaching and dangerous consequences for the region.

The letter calls for the UN to intervene and prevent India’s unconstitutional attack on Kashmir’s autonomy.
