LONDON Feb 17: Hundreds of Indian students and the Indian community from different walks of life in London took to the streets to protest the terrorist attack that killed 40 Indian Central Reserve Police Force jawans on February 14.
Reports said that the nefarious act was carried out by banned Pakistani terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) which is lead by Pakistan-based Muslim cleric Maulana Masood Azhar. He founded the group after he was released by India in 1999 in exchange for the crew and passengers of an Indian Airlines plane hijacked and flown to Taliban-ruled Afghanistan.
The protests in London by the Indian community was held in front of the Pakistan High Commission near Knightsbridge in central London. Members of the Indian community chanting Vande Maratam and Bharat Mata KI Jai assembled in central London and walked towards the High Commission.
Mr Manoj Ladwa, Founder & CEO of India Global Business magazine, urged the British government to end all defence ties with Pakistan. He also urged British companies to stop dealing with Pakistan.
He appealed to the British Parliamentarian to stop sympathising with terrorists.
“There is no room for terrorism in British soil,” said Manoj. “Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and it will remain as same.”
Indian Students Association had called all to join the protest with a notice on their Facebook page:
