Kashmir Million March: Eggs, Tomatoes & Bottles @Bilawal

Newsfeed

Bilawal Bhutto Zadari, chairperson of the Pakistan People’s Party, had to cut short his speech at ‘Kashmir Million March’ as some of the participants chanted slogans and threw empty plastic bottles, eggs and tomatoes at him in London.

The protest march, organised by a UK-based group to bring focus on the Kashmir issue, fizzled out as only a few hundred people assembled to wave placards and flags as they walked from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street.

As Mr Zardari stepped on to a makeshift stage to speak, the crowd began to jeer and threw empty plastic bottles at him, refusing 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, whose supporters call him a former prime minister of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), and was supported by British parliamentarian Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham.
