In occupied Kashmir, the Chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Aasiya Andrabi has urged the people to completely boycott the upcoming so-celled Indian Parliamentary by-elections and give a message to the world that the sham polls are not an alternative to the plebiscite.
Aasiya Andrabi in a statement issued in Srinagar said that in Islam, electing someone who challenges or changes or disagrees with the divine laws is polytheism (Shirk).
She urged the ulema and the Khateebs of mosque across the Valley to make people aware about this sinister practice (elections). She added that people who are elected to Indian Parliament not only disrespect the rule of Allah but also help make laws used to kill, maim, blind and oppress the Muslims in occupied Kashmir.
She said that earlier it was PDP and now NC and congress were coming at people’s doorstep and were claiming that they would address the Kashmir dispute if were vote. “These people are different sides of the same coin, they come with deceptive propaganda when they are not in power and once voted to power, all of them do only one thing: Kill, maim and oppress us,” she added.
Terming Kashmir as a police state, Aasiya Andrabi said that it was unfortunate that cricket-playing kids were arrested in Ganderbal only for playing Pakistani anthem before the start of the game. “By arresting these kids, harassing their families and raids only expose frustration of the authorities,” she maintained.—Agencies
