Watch: Anti-Pak protest in UK; Pakistanis try to fight, intimidate PoK activists

Activists from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir staged a protest against the Islamic Republic in the United Kingdom. The demonstration was conducted outside Pakistan's consulate in Bradford. Pakistani nationals reportedly tried to sabotage the protest by intimidating the activists. Even UK police were seen intervening in the incident. Mahmood Kashmiri, one of the protestors, said that Pakistani diplomats were behind the attempt to break up the demonstration. He added that the Pakistanis needed to learn that they can't intimidate protestors in the UK, like they do in their home country. The demonstration was conducted in solidarity with Tanveer Ahmed, a PoK activist and journalist. He reportedly held a hunger strike a few weeks ago against Pakistani flags being hoisted at public places in PoK. He was reportedly arrested after taking down the flag himself.
