Islamabad: Jammu and Kashmir Self-Determination Movement International (JKSDM) Chairman, Raja Najabat Hussain said that  32 Members of British Parliament have agreed to support the demand of debate on human rights violations by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir. The parliament, accepting the resolution, fixed 26th March for debate. The members will take part in the debate for three hours.

The support has been expressed by the British MPs in response to a letter written by Jammu and Kashmir Self-Determination Movement International Chairman, Raja Najabat Hussain, asking the British government and the international community to play their role in mitigating the sufferings of the Kashmiri people at the hands of Indian brutal forces.

JKSDM chairman Raja Najabat Hussain along with a team contacted all the MPs in the UK Parliament to participate in the debate and speak on gross human rights violations in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. These 32 MPs have supported Debbie Abrahams, Chairperson of All Parties Parliamentary Group on Kashmir in the British Parliament.

Raja Najabat Hussain asked all the Kashmiris to get united and remain active in next 10 days to raise the voice for hapless Kashmiri brothers and sisters in the occupied territory.

It is worth mentioning here that Debbie Abrahams, UK Labour Party MP and Chairperson of All Parties Parliamentary Group on Kashmir (APPGK) in the British Parliament, presented, in the second week of March, a resolution titled “Human Rights in Kashmir” in the UK Parliament for a debate on rights situation in occupied Kashmir.
