BIRMINGHAM: World Sikh Parliament (WSP) leaders supported the Tehreek-e-Kashmir TeK United Kingdom (UK) for organizing the anti-India protest in front of Indian High Commission (IHC) in London on Indian Republic Day January 26 that Kashmiris would observe as “ Black Day” across the globe.
The spokesman of WSP Ranjeet Singh along with other Sikh leaders announced this while addressing a joint press conference with President TeK UK Raja Fahim Kayani here.
“ We are with the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir IOJ&K who have been incarcerated by government of India since August 5, 2019. In this situation we will join the TeK UK’s anti-India protest in front of the IHC in London,” WSP leader Singh added.
On the occasion President TeK UK Kayani said that India has no moral right to observe January 26 as Republic Day when New Delhi government with the help of regular Indian Army has turned whole IOJ&K into a prison.
“ Since August 5, 2019 thousands of Kashmiris particularly youth have been arrested. Political leaders both pro-freedom and pro-Indian have been put behind the bars and internet is closed for the last more than five months . In such situation we want to show the real face of so-called democratic India to the world on its Republic Day, “ Kayani added.
The TeK UK President Kayani further said that British Kashmiris across the UK will gather in front of IHC London to show the real face of Indian democracy to the world.
Kayani accuses India of hoodwinking the world community on the name of democracy saying it is New Delhi that has snatched the right of vote to the people of IOJ&K since 1947. United Nations has given the right of vote to the Kashmiris to decide about their future.
The anti-India protest will help to remind the world to play their role for the permanent settlement of IOJ&K to bring peace and security in South Asia, Kayani said and added that British Kashmiris will continue to support their IOJ&K brothers and sisters who are the main victims of the Kashmir dispute.
