UK: PoK activists demonstrate outside Pakistan Consulate outside Bradford

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 05 Oct 2023, 03:23 pm

Exiled Kashmiris from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) recently gathered around the Pakistani Consulate in the United Kingdom's Bradford city to demonstrate against the violations of human rights by the country's security forces.

The demonstration was organized by the Jammu Kashmir National Independence Alliance (JKNIA) with an aim to raise voices against the crackdown by Pakistani security forces on protesters raising issues of high electricity bills and inflation, reports ANI.

Speaking at the event, Mahmood Kashmiri, the chairman of JKNIA, was quoted as saying by the news agency, “At present, a movement is ongoing in PoK against repression by Islamabad and it is our duty to support them.”

“Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir produces around 4,000 MW of electricity and our consumption is almost 400 MW and Pakistan is not ready to provide us the required electricity. We our people raise their demand then are labelled as Indian agents,” the JKNIA chairman said.

Speaking about the ongoing economic crisis in Pakistan, he said that the politicians and top military officers are begging from other countries and the money is being used for their own comfort.

“We the people of Jammu and Kashmir are not part of Pakistan. The loans Pakistan has taken from other countries are not our responsibility to repay. If Pakistan has taken loans, it is Pakistan that needs to repay it,” he said.

High inflation and rising electricity bills have disrupted life of people in  Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
