Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the 26-year-old chairperson of the Pakistan Peoples Party or PPP was heckled when he tried to address a protest rally in London on Sunday.
The protest, called the “Million March” and organised by a UK-based group to bring focus on the Kashmir issue, fizzled out as only a few hundred people gathered to wave placards and flags as they walked from Trafalgar Square to Downing Street.
As Mr. Zardari stepped on to a makeshift stage to speak, the crowd began to jeer and threw empty plastic bottles at him, refusing to let him speak.
“This march was to be about Kashmir and for the welfare of Kashmiris. Bilawal has no business being here,” said a group of angry protesters who had travelled from Derby in the East Midlands region of England.
The march was led by Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, whose supporters call him a former prime minister of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), and was supported by British parliamentarian Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham.
