Interference of UK in Kashmir unacceptable: BJP
Jammu and Kashmir BJP on Tuesday condemned the reported move to hold a 'special debate' in the British House of Commons on human rights situation in Kashmir, saying it was "a brazen interference" in India's internal affairs.
"The decision of the UK government to hold a 'special debate' on the human rights situation in Kashmir in the House of Commons is a brazen interference in the internal affairs of India," BJP state president and MP Jugal Kishore Sharma said.
He said that Jammu & Kashmir "is a settled issue and cannot be reopened under any pretext whatsoever".
Sharma said the BJP would have appreciated had the House taken up the issue of "persecuted minority communities" in the Valley.
