In 2018 Abrahams was elected chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Kashmir, having previously been the vice chair. Kashmir is a long way from her constituency, but many of her constituents are particularly close to Kashmir. When Abrahams was elected for Oldham East & Saddleworth in 2011 she increased the Labour majority from just 103 votes to 3,558. In 2013 she confirmed that Kashmir "is a particular issue for many of my constituents" and over the years she has found that pandering to Pakistani voters goes a long way. In 2015 she increased her majority to 6,002 and again in 2017 to 8,182.
