Clashes broke out on the outskirts of the High Commission of India in London on Friday when a member of British House of Lords, Nazir Ahmed along with his supporters protested in front of the Indian High Commission demanding freedom for Kashmir and Khalistan. Ahmed had termed the 69th republic day as ‘Black day’.

According to reports, the protests aimed to highlight 'the oppression of India'. Hundreds of protestors led by Nazir Ahmed and his pro-Pakistan colleagues demonstrated in front of the Indian High Commission demanding independence for Kashmir and Khalistan.

The protests turned violent after several Indian and British groups came out in a counter-protest. The clashes forced the police to intervene, reported ANI.

The counter-demonstrators accused Lord Nazir of mocking the British system by openly playing in the hands of Pakistan.

"I am here today to tell Lord Nazir that they demand the independence of my J & K state, but I want the freedom of terrorism sponsored by Pakistan, the violations of the ceasefire and its war of power," an Indian activist said.
