Reform Official Forms & Self-Reported Ethnic Categories for Jammu Kashmir Gilgit Baltistan

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


I would like to bring to your attention a matter considered of vital importance for the People of Jammu, Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan living in the United Kingdom.

It is estimated that there are around 750,000 Pakistanis living in the United Kingdom.

However, nearly 70% of them belong to Jammu, Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan and are wrongly identified as Pakistanis.

Due to the nature of the conflict in Jammu Kashmir and the occupation of its territories by Pakistan, India and China, people migrating to the United Kingdom must use the passports of the respective countries, which is not a true reflection of their ethnicity.

With respect to census and other official questionnaires, I would therefore request that you contact the Office for National Statistics and ask them to introduce two new tick boxes, for Jammu Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan respectively, to optimise the accuracy of measurement of the ethnic demography of United Kingdom.

Please help us get our identity back by signing this petition.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Dr Amjad Ayub Mirza
