Luton mosques organised a protest against the illegal military occupation of Kashmir, the escalation in hostility in the region and further infringement of the human rights of Kashmiris:

  • Curfews
  • No Internet
  • No mobile connection
  • More Indian troops sent into the most militarised region in the world
  • Fear of imminent genocide

The event was held on Friday 9th August with a peaceful, organised march from Luton Central Mosque to the town hall.

More than 1500 people joined to show solidarity with Kashmiris in their struggle for freedom and the right to self-determination.

There were a number of supporting statements by MP’s and the Leader of the Council:
