. In her remarks on the occasion Prospective Parliamentary Candidate from Dewsbury Sayeeda Warsi said until and unless the Kashmir issue was resolved , efforts should be made to stop human rights abuses taking place in Indian occupied Kashmir. She said women were being raped as a form of torture which was being used by India Security Forces to destroy the families. She urged Indian Government to allow independent human rights observers like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch to visit Indian occupied Kashmir.

same National Review article also draws attention to Sayeeda Warsi's views on Kashmir, a serious problem between immigrants from Indian and Pakistani backgrounds:
"Warsi has also entered the fray over the highly sensitive issue of Kashmir and, according to the Press Association, suggested in a July 2005 BBC One Politics Show interview that new antiterror laws should not prevent support among Britons for “freedom fighters” in Kashmir. Comparing Islamic rebels in the disputed province with Nelson Mandela and the ANC, Warsi observed that: We have a community in Britain, a Pakistani and Kashmiri community, who holds a very, very strong view about Kashmir and the scope of freedom-fighting in Kashmir. It would concern me if… the definition of terrorism was to cover maybe (the) legitimate freedom-fight in Kashmir. It should be noted that Britain currently outlaws no less than six Kashmiri terrorist organizations: Harakat Ul-Jihad-Ul Islami, Harakat-Ul-Mujahideen/Alami and Jundallah, Harakat Mujahideen, Jaish e Mohammed, Khuddam Ul-Islam and splinter group Jamaat Ul-Furquan, and Lashkar e Tayyaba. It is hard to see how such extreme views will actually enhance “community cohesion” in Britain’s inner cities, and it is difficult to think of a more explosive issue than Kashmir in fomenting tensions between British citizens of Pakistani and Indian origin."

Johannji, how much do you reckon this significant numbers of muslims translates into in terms of percentage?
