MPs have backed pleas for urgent aid to help quake victims in Pakistan and India.
Roger Godsiff (Lab Sparkbrook and Small Heath) called on Britain to use its role as President of European Union to coordinate "immediate relief."
And he said there must be long term reconstruction of the devastated areas as well as financial and physical assistance right now.
Mr Godsiff is asking fellow MPs to back his comments by signing an official House of Commons motion he said: "I represent the constituency in this country where the largest number of British Kashmiris live - most are from Mirpur, Dadyal and Jakswari."
Both Pakistan administered Kashmir and the Indian administered region have been affected by the disaster.
Khalid Mahmood ( Lab Perry Barr) said: "The huge devastation in the rural areas of Kashmir, where all built-up properties have been decimated, means that those people who remain after the tragedy will need long term assistance." He urged ministers to ensure British citizens had access to information allowing them to find out what had happened to friends and relatives in Kashmir.
Sion Simon (Lab Erdington) said: "The city of Birmingham is a lot closer to Azad Kashmir and Pakistan than can be told on a map. The effect of the tragedy on our own communities is real and as if it happened in our own country."
Andrew Mitchell (Con Sutton Coldfield) said: "Many MPs have constituents who have relatives in the affected areas. Thousands of our constituents are waiting anxiously for news about their families and friends, and the thoughts of all of us are with them at this dreadful time."
