New Delhi, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 27 January 2018, 07:45 AM

On the day when India was celebrating its 69th Republic Day, a Pakistan backed 'Black Day' campaign was organised outside the Indian High Commission in Central London.

According to the Black Day organisers, led by Lord Nazir Ahmed, a pro-Pakistan baron in the House of Lords, they were protesting the oppression of Kashmiris in India and wanted an Azad Kashmir.

They were strongly defied by many Indian and British groups resulting in an eruption of clashes and scuffles outside the Indian High Commission leading to police intervention.

“I am here today to tell Lord Nazir that they are asking for independence for my state of J&K but I want freedom from Pakistan sponsored terrorism, ceasefire violations, and their proxy war,” said an Indian activist and writer from the state of Jammu and Kashmir based in London.
