A new British Indian military memorial is to be built in the Scottish city of Glasgow after the local council has given planning permission. This memorial will be built in the memory of lakhs of Indian soldiers who fought alongside the British soldiers in both the world wars. ‘Glasgow City Council’ has recently given conditional approval to the application related to this scheme. This has cleared the way for finalizing the design of this monument to be constructed near ‘Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum’.

This initiative to build the memorial is being done by the ‘Colorful Heritage Multimedia Project’. Through this memorial, recognition will be given to the service and sacrifice of more than 40 lakh soldiers of the British Indian Army. Colorful Heritage said, “Our aim with the memorial is to reflect the diversity of people including Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and Gurkhas, who fought alongside British soldiers in World War I and II. It also said it was intended to honor the special relationship between Scotland and the K-6 force. The K-6 force was an entirely Muslim Punjabi regiment that arrived in Scotland after fleeing Dunkirk during World War II.
