UK Parliament observes 33 years of Kashmiri Pandit genocide

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 27 Jan 2023, 06:13 pm

The All Party Parliamentary Group for British Hindus, the Kashmiri Pandit diaspora and allies marked the 33th year of Kashmiri Pandits genocide on Wednesday, media reports said.

The event took place at the Houses of Parliament, London, and was hosted by Bob Blackman, Chair All Party Parliamentary, APPG group for British Hindus. An Early Day Motion (EDM) was also tabled to commemorate Genocide of Kashmiri Pandits, signed by cross-party MPs, reminding them that justice was yet to be done, reports ANI.

Bob Blackman reiterated his support for India and the Kashmiri Hindu community and reminded that it was Pakistan’s invasion of Kashmir that led to erstwhile Maharaja acceding to India, the Indian news agency reported.

On Jan 19, 1990, Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave their land following a bloody campaign launched by Pakistan-supported terrorists to ethnically cleanse the Valley.

Despite being ruthlessly ousted from their homeland, Kashmiri Pandits have persistently yet peacefully demanded attention from the governments at the Centre to reclaim their rightful place in the Valley.
