Former Convener, All Parties Hurriyat Conference AJK chapter, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani has expressed serious concern over political suffocation and widespread arrests of young and old under the current Hindutva regime in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Condemning the arrests of six Muslim prominent preachers and scholars without any justification, he said the Hindu regime had certain intention of replacing Islam and Islamic fundamentals and cultural precedents of the Prophet PBUH and His pious companions with Hidndutiva agenda to pave the way for diluting the Muslim majority character of the territory. He said the arrests are aimed at regulating and modelling the Islamic prayers and speeches in line with the RSS agenda of the Modi government of India.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani apprehended that the Hindutva rulers were hell bent on replacing even the secular clauses of the Indian Constitution by ancient Hindu beliefs and no doubt, the people of Kashmir faced ugliest draconian laws of their history after abrogation of the Articles 370 and 35A and no space was left for freedom of religion and political ideas.
Thousands of people were rotting in jails all across Jammu and Kashmir and India without any just legal procedure. He urged UN, OCHR and OIC to take some solid measures against India’s moves to snatch Kashmir’s demographic Muslim identity and character.—KMS
