London: An urgent motion has been moved in the UK parliament by British MPs against the startling report of the foreign committee of the European Parliament which has opposed holding of any plebiscite in Kashmir and, to the much disappointment of Pakistan, upheld the stance of the Indian government on the disputed region. The motion is said to be moved in UK parliament after Pakistan High Commissioner Dr Maleeha Lodhi launched a counter-attack on the report to watch Pakistan's interest at the European Parliament session which is set to vote on this report in March 2007. If this motion is adopted by European parliament then it will be sent to the United Nations, all members state of European Union, Pakistan and India and China. The motion moved by MP Rowen Paul along with one more MP in the House of Commons has attacked the European Parliament's Kashmir Report and has asked the authorities concerned to review it immediately as it misses many important aspects of this whole conflict between India and Pakistan.
