There were reported clashes outside the Indian Embassy in London on Friday after Lord Nazir Ahmed organized a "black day" protest asking for the independence of kashmir.

The demonstration turned violent after Indian supporters opposed and clashed with the protesters headed by the peer. Nazir is a Pakistan supporter in the House of Lord's.

Indian supporters countered demonstrators

An angry Indian supporter argued that while the protesters were asking for the freedom of Kashmir which is an integral part of India, he is demanding freedom from Pakistan sponsored terrorism from Indian soil.

The protesters carried various placards to demonstrate their demands and were vehemently opposed by the majority of the Indian contingent.

The pro-Pakistan protesters had arranged for five vehicles which were specially designed to roam on the streets of London. 'Free Kashmir from India' was written all over them.

The Police had to intervene to dismantle the crowd; however, the situation was resolved peacefully in the end.

This year, ten leaders from various countries were invited, and they participated in the Republic Day Parade along with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
