In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has expressed serious concern over the allotment of agricultural land for construction of camps and ac-commodations for Indian paramilitary Central Re-serve Police Force in Kakapora area of Pulwama district.

The forum in a statement issued in Srinagar, to-day, said that authorities were snatching a large tract of agricultural land from locals in Woukho village of Kakapora for setting up camps and accommoda-tions for CRPF soldiers and their families. “This has put their livelihood in great peril which the locals are resenting.”

The Hurriyat forum said that thousands of acres of land in Kashmir, the world’s most militarised zone, are already in military possession, which has dispossessed the people of Kashmir of the use of their natural resource.

“By taking over peoples’ land and snatching their livelihood, through authoritarian orders, those in power are only adding to peoples woes, and implementing the agenda of demographic change.” The statement added.

The JKFF Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Front, Syed Bashir Andrabi in a statement issued in Srinagar paid rich tributes to the martyrs Haiderpora, Ram Bagh Pulwama and other martyrs and hoped that people of Kashmir would soon see the dawn of freedom as a result of these sacrifices.

While condemning the Indian forces’ action in Kashmir, he said the sacrifices given by the Kash-miri people is a precious asset of the ongoing free-dom movement and these sacrifices would never ever be allowed to go waste.

Jammu and Kashmir Mass Movement Secretary Information in a statement said that Modi govern-ment was engaged in killing innocent Kashmiris and seizing their land at gunpoint to bring a demo-graphic change in the territory.

He deplored that the people living around Indian army camps are being evicted from their ancestral land by dint of force. He urged the United Nations to play its role in settle-ment of the Kashmir dispute as per its resolutions.—KMS
