British boxer Amir Khan has visited Kashmir to call for peace.
The fighter visited the Line of Control (LoC) near Chakothi to show solidarity with the people of occupied Kashmir.
Speaking to the media, Khan said: “My heart beats with the people of Kashmir who are living under siege. I condemn India’s actions in occupied Kashmir. I’ve come here to build that awareness and let people know what these poor people are going through.”
The 32-year-old met with the families affected and promised to help with funds from the Amir Khan Foundation.
This visit comes in light of the increasing tensions between Pakistan and India following a decision to strip occupied Kashmir of its autonomous status.
