Members of UK Parliament have demanded that the people of Jammu and Kashmir must be given the right to self-determination to enable them to decide their future by themselves.

MPs, David Nuttall and Philip Davies during a debate on Kashmir in London said that the Kashmiris should be afforded the same right to self-determination as was given to the British people in the form of the Brexit vote.

Conservative MP, Steve Baker said the conflict is a legacy of the British Empire and the government should acknowledge historic responsibility and do more to help resolve it.

Speaking on the occasion, British Foreign Office Minister, Alok Sharma adopted the traditional callous approach of the British government on the Kashmir dispute and ruled out any active role in its settlement.
