Following strong protest from India the Birmingham City Council in United Kingdom has withdrawn the granted permission of “Burhan Wani Day” rally to mark first death anniversary of Burhan Wani .

Wani was a militant/terrorist of Hizb-ul-Mujahideen Islamic terror group and was killed last year on 8 July in an encounter by Indian security forces in Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Britain has a long history of terror attacks and in the early 1970s multiple attacks were carried out across the country by a parliamentary group Irish Republican Army (IRA).

In 1974 about two dozen people were killed in a Birmingham pub and over 200 hundred were injured in 1996 in a massive 1500-kilogram bomb blast in a Manchester shopping center by IRA. Earlier this year 23 innocent people lost their lives in a terror attack in the Manchester Arena. In 2005 four suicide bombers killed 52 on the London transit network.

The “Burhan Wani Day” rally was scheduled to be held on Saturday at Victoria Square on Saturday. The event has been highly advertised through social media saying, “We will take back what is ours forcefully. We will not rest until Kashmir is free from Kuffars and hoist the flag of Islamic Ummah.”

A Birmingham Council spokesman said the permission was given for a peaceful rally highlighting human rights abuse in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, but they are now aware of the concerns raised with posters over social media and have withdrawn the permission at Victoria Square.
