A large number of Kashmiri community members held a protest demonstration against the scrapping of Article 370 and to urge the world community to take notice of blatant violations of UN resolutions on Kashmir by India.
The demonstrators carrying banners and placards reading, “India implement UN resolutions” and “Vacate Kashmir”, staged the protest outside Indian High Commission in London. Prominent among those who attended the event included Professor Nazir Ahmad Shawl and Councilors Amjad Abbasi and Raja Ishaq.
Meanwhile, a US-based Muslim advocacy group has announced to hold a protest in front of the Indian Embassy in Washington on Tuesday against the revoking of Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave special status to occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The 28-year-old organisation, in a message to its supporters, said, “Tomorrow at noon, there will be rallies in front of the Indian embassies and consulates of the following cities in the United States.”
The Indian government on Monday scrapped the article which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and proposed that the territory be bifurcated into two Union territories–Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
