British Labour Party Hardens Stance On Kashmir; Could Apologize For Jallianwala Bagh Massacre

Published

on

British Labour party is promising “a more interventionist” policy on Kashmir in its general election manifesto while considerably “escalating” its anti-India stance. According to experts, relations between UK and India could deteriorate if Jeremy Corbyn replaces Boris Johnson as the PM of the UK after the December 12 election.

The manifesto, “It’s Time For Real Change”, also vowed a future Corbyn government would “issue a formal apology for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, and hold a public review into Britain’s role in the Amritsar massacre”

Experts talking to EurAsian Times stated that its an only ploy to pease the Sikh community in the UK while also luring the large Pakistani community in the UK.

Earlier in September, British MP Bob Blackman slammed Pakistan over its decision to move the United Nations on the Kashmir issue and said that the country should vacate Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) first. Bob Blackman said that Jammu and Kashmir was part of sovereign India.

Addressing a UK-based Kashmiri Pandit gathering, the Conservative Party MP countered the Pakistani government’s plan to move a United Nations resolution in the wake of India’s August 5 decision to revoke Article 370 of its Constitution and end the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

“The entirety of the state of Jammu and Kashmir is part of sovereign India, and people that ask for UN resolution to be implemented ignore the first resolution, which is that Pakistani military forces should leave Kashmir to re-unite the state,” Blackman said at the “Balidan Divas”.

Blackman has been vocal about his support for India since the decision to revoke Article 370 found echoes among Britain’s MPs. The north London MP, who is also chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Hindus, has been a long-time supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He had also written to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson accusing opposition Labour Party MPs of making provocative claims against India.

No One Would Be Left In Kashmir To Raise The Indian Flag With Detention Of Pro-India Politicians

Blackman said, “I strongly support the revocation of Article 370 Narendra Modi has again shown proper and strong leadership in honouring the manifesto of the BJP now is the time to properly integrate Jammu and Kashmir into the Indian Constitution.”

Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after New Delhi ended Jammu and Kashmir’s special status on August 5 and bifurcated it into two Union Territories. Pakistan downgraded its diplomatic relations with India and expelled the Indian high commissioner following the revocation. Asserting that the abrogation of Article 370 was its “internal matter”, India has asked Pakistan to accept the reality.
