United Kingdom Alerte de sécurité

Jammu Kashmir Political National Alliance (JKPNA) calls for a rally in London on October 24; heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 24/10/2019, 12h00 until 24/10/2019, 11h59 (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION London, Pakistani High Commission

Event

The Jammu Kashmir Political National Alliance (JKPNA) has called for a demonstration in London on Thursday, October 24, in response to the death of two protesters at a pro-independence rally in Kashmir on Tuesday, October 22. Participants plan to gather at 13:00 (local time) at the Pakistani High Commission.

A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected near the protest site.

Context

Following a cabinet meeting on August 5, Indian Home Minister Amit Shah proposed to parliament that Article 370 in the Constitution, which accords Jammu and Kashmir state a special autonomous status, be revoked. He also proposed that Jammu and Kashmir be reorganized as a Union Territory with an assembly, and Ladakh be a separate Union Territory with no legislature.

After New Delhi rescinded the state's effective constitutional autonomy, a curfew was imposed in Jammu and Kashmir state on August 5, along with a blockage of landline and internet services in many areas. Kashmir-solidarity demonstrations and protests against India's proposed revocation of the state's special autonomous status have taken place regularly across Pakistan in the weeks following the announcement. Business disruptions have also been frequently reported in recent weeks.

Advice

Individuals in London are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, prepare for disruptions to transportation and business, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.
