Lord Nazir Ahmed to launch campaign; ‘minorities not safe in India’

He is one of the few British Muslims to be appointed to the House of Lords and he on Thursday launched a protest campaign against India.

The campaign launched by Lord Nazir Ahmed claims that the minorities in the India are not safe.

Lord Nazir Ahmed is said have been born in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir but was raised in South Yorkshire and is known to have made common cause with “Kashmiri Pakistanis”.

He said that as part of the campaign, he will involve five billboard vans traversing the streets of London.

On Friday, a group led by the politician will gather outside the Indian high commission in London.

The Indian High Commission in London said it has raised its concerns with the UK authorities but the billboard vans are private vehicles and therefore not directly under state control.
