In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat organizations have appealed to the Kashmiri people to observe a general strike on August 5 to make it clear to the world that India’s position in Jammu and Kashmir is of a forcible occupier and it is taking illegal measures to damage the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) in a statement issued in Srinagar thanked the international community and the justice loving institutions for not accepting the aforesaid imperialist moves of Modi-led fascist Indian government in Kashmir.
Two years ago, on August 5, 2019, New Delhi took an oppressive measure to forcefully integrate Jammu and Kashmir into India, by dividing the region and ending its statehood.
“Since Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed territory on the UN Charter and its people have yet to determine their political future, India does not have the right to integrate the region into its territory,” the statement said.
Kashmiri people, it said, consider the application of the entire Constitution of India to Jammu and Kashmir as illegal and immoral in accordance with international law and unilateral repeal of Article 37 is sheer violation of international principles and laws.
India has not stopped there, but since then it has continued to impose imperialistic laws aimed at oppressing the local population and changing demography of disputed region.—KMS
