APHC leader and Vice Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement (JKPM), Abdul Majeed Malik has said that India has intensified its state terrorism in occupied Kashmir.
Abdul Majeed Malik addressing a meeting in Islamabad said that the authorities were arresting Hurriyat leaders under the draconian Public Safety Act (PSA). He said that Hurriyat leader, Farooq Tawheedi was arrested the other day and sent to police station while his son had been shifted to some unknown place.
Sardar Abid Zia, Syed Umair-ul-Islam, Bilal Bhatti, Fazal Hussain Khan and Manzoor Ahmad participated in the meeting. The speakers deplored that under a planned conspiracy the Indian government had implemented new domicile law to change the Muslim majority status of the territory into a minority. India has so far issued about 60,000 fake domiciles and is setting up soldier colonies in Jammu province to resettle non-state actors from Delhi, Punjab and Bihar, they added.
It was further stated in the meeting that India had waged an undeclared war to divert the world attention from the Kashmir dispute and the general people are being martyred by firing on schools, hospitals and the civilian population.
The speakers said that betrayal with the blood of Kashmiri martyrs would not be allowed. “Kashmir will be free and the sacrifices made by our elders and generations will not go waste,” they added.
They also appealed to the people to observe Kashmir Martyrs’ Day on July 13 and reiterated their commitment that no option less than liberation would be acceptable.—KMS
