United Kingdom’s Labour Party in a conference in Brighton passed a resolution that supported “international intervention in Kashmir and a call for UN led-referendum.”
The motion was submitted by Blackburn, Dudley North, Keighley, Stockport and Wakefield constituency Labour parties. It condemns “the recent actions of the Government of India to revoke Article 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution and the special status” granted to Kashmir.
“Crucially, it calls on the Labour Party, the government in waiting, to clearly and vocally support the Kashmiri people’s right to self-determination and for international observers to be sent to the region immediately. The resolution also calls for an intervention of the party at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC),” it further reads.
Meanwhile, New York’s iconic Times Square lit up in show of solidarity with people of Occupied Kashmir ahead of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the United Nations General Assembly session. The Pakistani community sponsored a screen advertisement to highlight the grave human rights violations being carried out by Indian security forces in the Muslim majority region.
