LONDON – Leader of the British Labor Party Jeremy Corbyn has termed the situation in Kashmir as deeply disturbing.

In a tweet, Corbyn said human rights abuses taking place are unacceptable. The rights of the Kashmiri people must be respected and UN resolutions implemented.

The situation in Kashmir is deeply disturbing. Human rights abuses taking place are unacceptable. The rights of the Kashmiri people must be respected and UN resolutions implemented.

Mr. Corbyn’s statement comes amid reports that Kashmir tensions may spill over to Pakistani and Indian communities in Britain, where one million Kashmiris are feeling the repercussions of New Delhi’s shock move of scrapping Articles 370 and 35-A.

The controversial move by India’s Hindu nationalist prime minister, Narendra Modi, has led to fears of widespread unrest and paralysed normal life as tens of thousands of extra troops and security personnel were dispatched to add to the estimated 500,000 already present, making it one of the world’s most militarised zones.
