Kashmir Watch criticizes Lord Nazir suspension
Rao AtiqTuesday, March 26, 2013 - Mirpur—Britain-based global Kashmiri human rights organization–the Kashmir Watch International Monday strongly criticized the recent suspension of the membership of the Kashmir-born senior British Parliamentarian Lord Nazir Ahmed by the Labor Party, the main opposition in the House of Lords. “Lord Ahmed has, in fact, been made the target of a deep-rooted vendetta by the rivals – mostly the Jews lobby for his “crime” of exposing the increased anti-Muslim approach and policies of the Jews including their backed British media”, observed Mir Muhammad Sideeque Khawaja, Chairman Kashmir Watch International while addressing Correspondents here on Monday over telephone from his organization’s headquarters in Nottingham Monday morning. The KWI chief continued as saying “the executive council of Kashmir Watch International takes it with severe concern that under a deep-rooted pre-planned conspiracy, an extensive character-assassination drive has been launched against Lord Nazir Ahmed, the Pakistan-origin life-time member of the House of Lords, upper house of the British Parliament, since he suffered an alleged road accident while taking an alleged cell phone call during driving. “The action of suspension of the Labour Party membership of Lord Ahmed is not only an immoral act but also the blatant violation of human rights in the civilized world”, Mir Sideeque observed. The KWI chief also pointed out that being the Kashmir-born, Lord Nazir Ahmed could be described as the unofficial ambassador of the people of Jammu & Kashmir in Britain who always exposed Indian brutalities, oppression and atrocities in Indian-held Jammu & Kashmir by raising the Kashmir issue in European countries especially the importance of the grant of early right of self determination to the people of the disputed Himalayan state.
