New 6,500-km bus route will connect Birmingham to Kashmir

     London: Mirpur in Jammu and Kashmir will be linked by road with the United Kingdom through a direct bus service. A new 6,500-km bus route connecting the city of Birmingham will pass through seven countries, including Iran, before finally reaching its destination, also known as 'Little Birmingham'. Passengers embarking on the epic 12-day journey are likely to be charged 130 pounds for a ticket, the Daily Mirror reports. The service is definitely good news for the people of Birmingham, which is home to the world's largest population of Kashmiri expats. According to the report, security concerns have, however, been raised about the route, which will stop over at Quetta, Pakistan. Top Taliban commanders are said to be hiding in the volatile city, near the Afghan border.
