Several thousand people protested on Thursday outside the Indian embassy in London against the country’s move to strip the Indian-controlled part of Kashmir of its autonomy.

The protesters in the United Kingdom’s capital held up signs reading “Kashmir is bleeding” and waved Kashmiri and Pakistani flags. Police separated them from a smaller pro-India counter-demonstration. “Everybody has to stand up. This is a turning point,” said Shazad Ahmed, a 36-year-old IT worker from the Pakistan-controlled part of Kashmir who attended the protest with his wife and two daughters.

Although the event was largely peaceful, a police spokesperson said that four arrests were made with connection to the protest and that one person was injured. The identities of those arrested and the injured individual were not ascertained till the filing of this report. However, police said the arrests were made due to possession of an offensive weapon, obstruction of police and a public order offence.
