Official Recognition

Coming out of the shadows

"To promote official recognition of the Hilltonian peoples (British Paharis) as a distinct ethnic and linguistic group within the framework of the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Race Relations Amendment Act 2000 and to make formal representations on behalf of such people for the preservation of an ‘authentic’ ethnic identity that transcends official categorizations of the Hilltonian peoples as either Pakistanis or Kashmiris (on either side of the LOC) respectively without prejudice to individuals of Pahari descent who choose to espouse a Pakistani or Kashmiri identity on the basis of national labels."
