The minister of state for home, Kiren Rijiju raised this issue during his delegation level meeting with visiting British minister of state for immigration, Brandon Lewis. Rijiju said that the Kashmir issue was being raised in the British parliament at the behest of some MPs of Pakistan origin.He said that this was against the stated policy of non-interference in such matter
The Indian side also conveyed resentment over shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry of the Labour Party saying that Britain would incorporate its concern on alleged human rights violations in Kashmir in any post-Brexit deal with India, the official said. “It has been positive and cooperative about them; especially on the issue of extradition as well as the mutual legal assistance treaty”, Kiren Rijiju told Media.
Rijiju also raised issues regarding the pro-Khalistani and Kashmir separatist activists who are operating in UK. There are many in the UK who are indulging in anti-India activity. They are raising an anti-India propaganda and it must stop, Rijiju also told Lewis.
Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India and the UK should not allow an anti-India propaganda on its soil, the junior home minister also said.
