In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leaders and organizations have said that India is translating its colonial designs into reality on a fast track to change the demographic composition of the territory.
Jammu and Kashmir Tehreek-e-Mazahmat Chairman, Bilal Ahmad Siddiqui, reacting to recent developments in Jammu and Kashmir in a statement issued in Srinagar said the Muslim majority status of the territory is in grave danger as thousands of extra Indian troops have been brought to the territory to implement the Modi government’s Hindutva agenda at gunpoint.
He said post 5th August 2019 focus has been completely shifted to Muslim majority areas of Pir Panchaal, Kashmir valley and Kargil in Ladakh to alter and change the Muslim majority character of these areas.
“Delhi has unleashed a slew of colonial amendments, rules and laws to fulfill its dirty designs and now again it is pacing up this process of huge demographic changes in Jammu Kashmir,” he added.
Bilal Siddiqui added that since 5 August 2019 tens of thousands of non locals have been imported to Jammu and Kashmir in the garb of so-called lockdown.
This grim situation is indicative of a possible genocide of Muslim population in the Kashmir valley, Pir Panchal in Jammu region and Kargil in Ladah, he warned.
He appealed to the UN, and major world powers to step in to stop New Delhi from her evil designs.
The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement, Khawaja Firdous, in a statement said that Kashmiris would not be intimidated by the brutal tactics of Modi’s fascist government and would continue their struggle for the right to self-determination till complete success.
He said that India was sending additional troops in the occupied territory to carry out its nefarious plans against the Kashmiris.
He vowed that people of Jammu and Kashmir have neither recognized the unilateral and illegal Indian measures taken on August 5, 2019, nor would they accept any such future move.
He expressed concern over the plight of Hurriyat leaders and activists illegally detained in jails and called on the world community to put pressure on India to release them.
The Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) has said that if Kashmir dispute is not resolved as per the wishes of the Kashmiri people, it will continue to pose threat to the regional peace and stability as the two nuclear powers are among the three basic parties of the dispute.
It deplored that India is using its all might to suppress the legitimate voices of oppressed Kashmiri people.
A DFP spokesman said it is high time for the world community to act on Kashmir and take tangible actions to prevent India from committing war crimes in IIOJK.—KMS
