Corbyn confessed in a letter to the Labour Friends of India — a lobby group within the Labour party — which”a number of this language” used at the settlement was offered to misinterpretation, hinting he knew the concerns from the 1.5 million-strong Indian community.
As the reception group and a few Indian-origin Labour MPs relayed to him that the anger locally, Corbyn wrote: “The crisis movement on Kashmir came as part of the democratic procedure of the Labour party conference”.
“But, there’s a recognition that some of the terminology used inside it may be misinterpreted as hostile to India and the Indian Diaspora. Labour knows the worries the Indian community in Britain has about the problem in Kashmir and takes these issues very seriously”.
“The Labour Party is committed to ensuring that the human rights of citizens of Kashmir are respected and maintained. This remains our priority and that I concur we should not enable the politics of this sub-continent to split communities in Britain”.
Corbyn proceeded to highlight that the need to construct the”historically great relationship” with India and the Indian diaspora, also provided to fulfill with the lobby group to listen to perspectives on the problem from associates across the Indian community.

“We regret the uninformed and unfounded places taken at this function. There’s not any question of participating with the Labour Party or its agents on this situation.”
