To the House of Commons.
The Indian Government, in revoking Article 370 and 35a of the constitution has stripped the people of Jammu & Kashmir of their long-settled political status and rights, deployed thousands of troops to a heavily militarised state and shut down communications. These steps contravene UN Security Council Resolution no. 47
We the petitioners ask the House of Commons to take all necessary steps to the demand that the UK Government make urgent representations to the Indian Government, directly, through the Commonwealth and through the UN to ensure safeguards against human rights abuses are immediately put in place; to seek restoration of Kashmir’s special status; to ensure demilitarisation, restoration of communications and to immediately allow full access to human rights observers.
