Bus service from UK to India?
A new bus service will soon link Jammu and Kashmir in India to Birmingham in the United Kingdom. The 12- day bus journey will reportedly pass through seven countries, including Iran and Pakistan. Tickets for this route will cost up to 130 pounds. Birmingham hosts the largest percentage of Kashmiri expats in the world. Even then the news has been greeted with mixed feelings.
There is a concern over the security and safety of the passengers on this route which will halt at Quetta, Pakistan. This area is located close to Afghanistan border where Taliban commanders are said to be in hiding.
