Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Monday faced protests in Australian city Sydney over the issue of Kashmir.
A group of protesters called Modi to end conflict in the disputed Himalayan region. The protesters from Kashmir Council of Australia assembled outside New South Wales Parliament to register their protest.
“We want a peaceful settlement of the dispute so that both nations – India and Pakistan, can progress,” ABC News (link is external) quoted council’s founder Mumtaz Mian as saying.
The region has been a bone of contention between India and Pakistan since 1947. More than 65,000 people have lost their lives during the conflict.
Modi was in Australian to attend G20 summit.
