ISLAMABAD, Aug 27 (APP):AJK President Sardar Masood Khan Tuesday urged the British government to break his silence on the Kashmir issue and come up with a clear stance as sufferings of people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IoJ&K) were multiplying with each passing day.

Addressing a news conference along with UK parliamentary group, he stressed the UK government and Prime Minister Boris Johnson to play their role in addressing serious humanitarian crisis and preventing ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri people in the Indian occupied territory.

“Being a permanent member of the UN Security Council, it is the moral obligation of the UK to take cognizance of the worst human rights abuses and the carnage of innocent Kashmiri people at the hands of Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir,” he said.

The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) president said on the whole the UK’s role in the recent UN Security Council meeting on Kashmir was satisfactory, but the people of Jammu and Kashmir expected from UK a more active role to bring improvement in the situation of IoJ&K.

Sardar Masood thanked the Labor Party chief Jeremy Corbyn and the all-party parliamentary Kashmir Group in the UK parliament for expressing grave concern over human rights violations in IoJ&K, and said that the international community would have to take serious notice of genocide and war crimes against the
Kashmiri people.
