Members of the parliament (MPs) in UK of Pakistani origin have written to Prime Minister Boris Johnson as part of their efforts to secure the release of Kashmiri Hurriyat leader Yasin Malik, who was given life sentence by an Indian court on May 26, 2022, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday. 

In their letter, the MPs namely Khalid Mehmood, Tahir Ali, Imran Hussain and Muhammad Yasin have told the British prime minister that Yasin had been awarded life imprisonment in a false case that was politically motivated, and which went against the international laws governing human rights. 

The MPs have put forward five demands to PM Johnson, including the release of Hurriyat leader and the annulment of India’s Public Safety Act.

They have also appealed to the prime minister to put pressure on India to ensure peaceful solution of the Kashmir issue, and also give access to detained Kashmiri leaders as well as ordinary citizens. 

In their letter, they have urged the premier that under no circumstances his government should allow Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to go ahead with his draconian rule in the held valley.
