Pro-Kashmir Protesters Rally at India Day Festival in Toronto

Protesters calling for freedom for Kashmir rallied in Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square on August 18, when India Day festivities were scheduled to take place there.

This video shows a crowd of protesters with signs chanting “freedom for Kashmir” and “down with Modi,” referring to Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India.

These protests come after India revoked special status for its section of Kashmir, causing outrage in Pakistan.

Pakistan’s ruling Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party has accused Modi’s government of subscribing to neo-Nazi ideology and of seeking to install a Hindu majority in the Muslim-majority Kashmir.

In an Independence Day speech, Modi defended his decision on Kashmir, saying its semi-autonomous status had fueled a separatist movement, according to the Associated Press.
