After Congress delegation meets Jeremy Corbyn, JKLF announces support for his Labour Party in upcoming UK elections

JKLF, with support from several Pakistani-British groups, has been mobilising people to hold rallies to garner support against India over the Kashmir issue. 

The Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), a Pakistan sponsored terrorist organisation has announced its unconditional support to the Labour party in the upcoming elections in the United Kingdom.

JKLF’s UK branch has released a statement extending its support to the UK Labour party ahead of the December 12th elections in the country.

In a letter written to the Labour Party chief Corbyn, the JKLF has stated that it has decided to extend its complete support to the party “on behalf of the Kashmiri diaspora in the UK, and particularly thousands of members of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF)”.

The JKLF has also expressed its gratitude towards the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn for adopting a ‘unanimous resolution on the issue of Kashmir, which had pushed for mediation as a process to solve Kashmir issue.’

The Labour Party, which is led by controversial leader Jeremy Corbyn, has often taken an anti-India stance and has also extended its support to various propaganda pushed by pro-Pakistan elements in the United Kingdom.

Recently, the Labour party had asked Corbyn to meet the high commissioners of both India and Pakistan to ensure there is “mediation” and restoration of peace and normality to prevent a potential nuclear conflict. On September 25, the Labour Party had passed a resolution that supported “international intervention in Kashmir and a call for UN led-referendum.”

After massive outrage by the Indian diaspora and over fears of losing British-Indian votes, Jeremy Corbyn’s labour party had later backtracked on its resolution. In a complete turnaround, the Labour Party’s chairperson, Ian Lavery, has called Kashmir a ‘bilateral issue’ and said that it should be resolved by India and Pakistan. It states that the Labour party is opposed to external interference in the political affairs of any other country.

The Labour party’s stand on Kashmir is contrary to India’s position on Kashmir. India has categorically told the international community that its move on Kashmir was an internal matter. India has always maintained that any dialogues with Pakistan will be bilateral only.

Apart from this, after the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, JKLF activists, prominent British-Pakistanis associated with the Labour Party, and even several Labour party MPs in the UK were part of anti-India protests that had seen attacks on the Indian High Commission building in the UK in September 2019.

JKLF, with support from several Pakistani-British groups, has been mobilising people to hold rallies to garner support against India over the Kashmir issue.

In a bizzare development, representatives from the Congress party in India had met UK Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn “to discuss the human rights issues in Kashmir”. After facing criticism and backlash for meeting Corbyn despite his vocal anti-India stand, Congress had issued a clarification that their meeting was to ‘condemn’ the anti-India resolution passed by Corbyn’s party.

JKLF is one of notorious Pakistan sponsored terror outfits and also has been one of the chief initiators of radicalisation and terrorism in the Kashmir valley. Its chief Yasin Malik is currently facing charges for killing 4 Indian Air Force personnel in cold blood. The JKLF in the Kashmir Valley was banned by the Indian government under the revamped anti-terror law in March 2019.
