During the debate on Kashmir in the British Parliament premises, India has protested against the false facts on the part of some MPs, saying that these false facts were made available to the MPs who were kept during the debate as part of their propaganda campaign by Pakistan. . Expressing disappointment over some MPs participating in the discussion on the Kashmir issue in the Parliament House complex in London, India said the discussion was based on false claims and unconfirmed allegations made by ‘a third country’ (Pakistan). The discussion held by some British MPs in the House of Commons Westminster Hall on Wednesday evening was titled ‘Political Situation in Kashmir’. The Indian High Commission in London also objected to the use of such words, describing them as problematic in themselves.
The High Commission said in a statement, “With reference to the use of the word ‘Kashmir’ in the title: Union Territory of Jammu Kashmir, which is an integral part of India and occupied Kashmir of Pakistan (when the erstwhile Kashmir State was legally passed in October 1947 If India was included in India, then this part was forcibly and illegally annexed by Pakistan).
He said, “It has also been taken into account that in spite of having sufficient authentic information publicly available based on the facts and updated information on the ground, in the context of the Union Territory of India, Jammu and Kashmir, the current ground reality Was ignored and false claims made by a third country were displayed which contained unconfirmed allegations like ‘genocide’ and ‘violence’ and ‘torture’.
Responding to the discussion on behalf of the UK government, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FDCO) Minister Nigel Adams reiterated the official stand that Britain should not play any mediating role in the India-Pakistan bilateral matter. However, he said that there are human rights concerns on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC).
Being the minister’s responsibility for Asia, Adams said, “The government (on Kashmir) policy is stable and there is no change in it.” We have consistently believed that a long-term political solution to the situation is to find India and Pakistan in which the aspirations of the Kashmiri people are taken care of, as mentioned in the Simla Agreement.
The discussion organized by Sarah Owen of the Labor Party was attended by MPs from various political parties in Britain, most of which have a good population of people of Kashmiri origin in their constituencies. He expressed concern over alleged human rights violations and requested the UK government for easy access to the area so that direct reports from Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) could be presented in the British Parliament in future.
The Indian High Commission in London underlined that a smart Wi-Fi project from last year has enabled high-speed internet access in the area and despite threats of terrorist attacks, challenging weather conditions and the Kovid-19 epidemic, the DDC was here last month The historic elections were held. The Indian High Commission said in its statement, “Jammu and Kashmir, since the administrative reorganization in August 2019, has been moving on the path of good governance and rapid development. All the administrative steps taken by the Government of India in Jammu and Kashmir are completely internal to India.
The statement said that it is not India’s policy to take ‘undue interest’ in the internal discussion held inside a foreign parliament, but the High Commission of India provides authentic information about India and removes ‘misconceptions and misinformation’. Keeps dialogue with related parties including UK government and MPs.
