Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) London Branch held a special meeting in Walthamstow, London to discuss the current situation of Kashmir freedom movement and role of JKLF UK zone to internationalise this long standing unresolved issue. Various suggestions were discussed in the meeting including chalking out the activities for the next six months to highlight the Kashmir issue from Kashmir perspective.

The statement issued after the meeting, said that JKLF condemns the plans of Pakistani authororities to annex Gilgit Baltistan and make it a fifth province. Any such illegal move by Pakistan Government will be resisted by the people of Jammu Kashmir with full force. The statement further said that JKLF has always been of the opinion that the most practicable, democratic and honourable solution of Jammu Kashmir issue is to allow the people of divided regions a free and fair referendum to determine their future according to their own free will.

Speaking on this occation, Senior Vice President of JKLF in UK, Cllr Mahmood Hussain said that although JKLF advocates a free Sovereign Independent Country of Jammu Kashmir, but being a democratic movement, we believe that the people of Kashmir be given the right to exercise their own right to determine their future. He further said that if Kashmir issue remains unresolved, uncertainty, instability, clouds of war will remain in the region. The international community is duty bound to mediate and involve itself in order to halt the injustice done to the people of Jammu Kashmir.

India has oppressed Kashmiris from last over 65 years and Kashmiris are virtually been imprisoned in their own homes.
