Pakistan People’s Party leader Bilawal Bhutto held a rally in London that turned violent after Bhutto appeared on the stage. The rally, that was opposing India’s right to Kashmir, was on its way from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street when the leader appeared. He was greeted with water bottles and cans, and had to be escorted away under protection.

The so-called ‘Million March’ descended into chaos as Bilawal Bhutto Zardari stepped on to the makeshift stage to speak.

The crowd began booing and throwing empty plastic bottles and refused to let him speak.

“This march was to be about Kashmir and for the welfare of Kashmiris. Bilawal has no business being here,” said a group of angry protesters who had travelled from Derby in the East Midlands region of England.

The march was led by Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, referred to as a former prime minister of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), and was supported by Mirpuri-origin British parliamentarian Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham.

While the group had claimed overwhelming support from various communities for the march, others had dismissed it as against the “national interest of the people of Jammu and Kashmir”.

A counter-protest held by a rival group on Saturday ended with memorandums submitted for the prime ministers of India and Pakistan at their high commissions.

The memorandums urged both India and Pakistan to “respect the fundamental human rights of all citizens of Jammu and Kashmir”.
