In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the PDP President, Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said the dismissal of eleven government employees on flimsy grounds was criminal and New Delhi contin-ues disempowering the people of Jammu and Kashmir in the garb of pseudo nationalism by tram-pling the Indian Constitution.
The IIOJK administration sacked 11 employees, including two sons of Syed Salahuddin on fake charges.
Mehbooba Mufti wrote on Twitter: “India con-tinues disempowering people of J&K in garb of pseudo nationalism by trampling the constitution that ought to be upheld. Abrupt dismissal of 11 government employees on flimsy grounds is crimi-nal.
All policy decisions vis-a-vis J&K are taken with sole objective of punishing Kashmiris.” Me-hbooba wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Hurriyat leader Shaikh Yaqoob in a statement said that India is terminating Muslim employees to cripple Kashmiri people economi-cally.
He said that Kashmir traders were already facing problems while now employees are also made to suffer.
Rights activist and Vice Chairman of Jammu Kashmir National Front Vice Chairman Altaf Hus-sain Wani, taking strong exception to the Indian authorities’ move to sack 11 Kashmiris from gov-ernment services, in a statement issued in Islamabad termed it as an act of political vengeance.
He said that the employees’ dismissal on mere allegations, that have been made but not yet proved in the court of law, was nothing but a malicious attempt to de-prive Kashmiris of their jobs and their legitimate rights guaranteed to them under the international law.
“Depriving Kashmiris of their jobs and other economic opportunities is in fact part of the Modi led fascist regime’s grand conspiracy to strangulate Kashmiris economically”, JKNF leader said.—KMS
