J&K letter to Keith Vaz

Tuesday 01st October 2019 12:55 EDT

As you maybe aware your Labour delegates and colleagues have unanimously passed a controversialist emergency motion on Kashmir at your Labour annual party conference in Brighton last week, leading to India's UK mission cancelling a dinner with Labour Friends of India. 

The Labour Party has now shown it true colours, and exposed itself, by interfering with the politics of the largest democracy in the world, of which it has the people mandate to the Policy Action by it Government.

The abrogation of Article 370 & 35A provided temporary special status to the state of Jammu & Kashmir and the creation of two union territories (J&K and Ladakh). 

This is a major step that has been taken for the betterment and development of J&K residents, and the State and one that me and fellow Indians living here in the UK wholeheartedly support. 

The whole of India and the people of J&K in particular have welcomed the action and there is a sense of excitement. 

Yes, there are troops on the ground and certain temporary restrictions to ensure Pakistan backed terror elements do not succeed in taking any undue advantage from the situation to advance their terror agenda, and to ensure law and order is maintain for the safety of it residents.

I hope you and the wider Labour Party, understand that the Indian Community is awaking and rising up to the Labour Anti Hate Stance against India, and therefore to us here in the Uk.
