ISLAMABAD, Jan 20 (APP):Lieutenant General (Retired) Senator Abdul Qayyum has asked the British parliamentarians to raise their voice against the ongoing human rights (HR) violations in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) in the House of Commons.
He said this during a meeting with British parliamentarians Alex Sobel and Hillary Benn who is a former minister of Labour Party, in Leeds, United Kingdom, a press released said.
Abdul Qayyum said they promised to do the needful and also expressed their determination to recommend their government not to supply any kind of arms and ammunition to India until its seven hundred thousand personnel committing atrocities in IoK are withdrawn.
