Speaking on the occasion, senior British parliamentarian, Lord Eric Obari said that he was hopeful that a day would come when Kashmirs would get the right to self-determination. “President Obama should seriously try to find a just solution of the K-issue,” he said. Lord Nazir Ahmad in his speech paid rich tributes to Maqbool Bhat and assured the Kashmiri nation that he would continue his support till Kashmiris get right to self-determination.

He announced that four British Parliament members including himself, Lord Obari, Marsha Singh and Kewlan Hopkin would write a letter to President Obama and urge him to appoint a special envoy on Kashmir. “International community has to play a role in the just settlement of the K-issue,” he said.-SANA
