Former Convener of All Parties Hurriyat Conference AJK chapter, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has said 27 October, 1947, was indeed a tragic day when in utter violation and negation of the Partition Plan and the sovereignty of Jammu and Kashmir, Indian army invaded the territory under the pretext of a fake accession instrument.
According to Kashmir Media Service, on October 27, he said, the Black Day will be observed across Jammu and Kashmir in the backdrop of upsurge against India’s 5 August, 2019, terminating of Kashmir’s special status and India’s own constitutional guarantees.
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad said India created hurdles in the implementation of the plebiscite plan of the UN by refusing to withdraw its forces from the occupied territory.
“During the past three years the Hindutva regime of BJP has extended major Indian laws to Kashmir to change the Muslim majority character of the region.”
“All types of freedoms and rights including press, Internet and assembly and communication have been scrapped. Thousands have been put behind bars and leaders have been martyred in custody,” he said.
According to new domicile law, a large number of Indians have been issued citizenship rights and the religious and cultural identity of Kashmir as a Muslim majority is fast eroding under a systematic settler-policy of colonialism.
The resilient people of the territory are up against the Indian hegemonic aggression and in favour of the right to self-determination recognised under the UN resolutions and Universal Declaration of Human Rights, he concluded.—INP
