Kashmir dispute threat to regional, global peace: British MP

LONDON - A member of the British Parliament David Ward has said that the lingering Kashmir dispute is a threat to regional and global peace and people of Kashmir should be given the right to self-determination.

David Ward who is representing Bradford East in British Parliament, had applied to the Backbench Business Committee, supported by other MPs, for a debate on the political and humanitarian situation in the region, KMS reported.

He said that the dispute is causing insecurity, instability and human rights violations.

Bradford East said, "The issue of Kashmir, the right to self-determination and concerns with human rights in the country have not been debated for some time in the House of Commons, and with the change of Government in India, it seemed that now is the right time for us in Parliament to have a full and frank debate about Kashmir," reports said.
