In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, New Delhi-controlled State Investigation Agency (SIA) seized more properties of Jamaat-e-Islami in the Kashmir Valley.
The JI properties have been seized in several districts of the Kashmir Valley including Ganderbal, Kupwara, Bandipora and Baramulla.
The SIA has identified as many as 188 JI properties across IIOJK which are being seized/attached during the further course of action to be undertaken. The action is aimed at punishing the organization for its role in the ongoing Kashmir freedom movement.
The SIA has already seized several properties belonging to the JI in the occupied territory. Meanwhile, illegally detained Chairman of International Forum for Justice Human Rights Jammu and Kashmir, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo, in a statement issued from Kot Bhalwal Jail, Jammu, condemned the action of confiscating houses and other properties of Jamaat-e-Islami and Hurriyat leaders by the Indian agencies.
He said that on one hand, India is killing, arresting and subjecting the Kashmiri youth to disappearance in custody, while, on the other, it is trying to intimidate the Hurriyat leaders and activists by confiscating their houses.
Ahsan Untoo said that the international community must take cognizance of India’s colonialist tactics against the innocent Kashmiris and come forward to help them in achieving their birthright to self-determination.—KMS
