The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for British Hindus, the Kashmiri Pandit diaspora and allies observed 33 years of Kashmiri Pandits genocide on Wednesday, January 25. The official date of the genocide, also known as the exodus day in the Kashmiri Pandit Communities, completed 33 years in 2023. Bob Blackman, Chairperson of the All Party Parliamentary, APPG group for British Hindus, held an event to mark the occasion.
