29

World is observing International Day for Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief but reports of violence against Muslims in Indian ille-gally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and in India continue to surface.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service said, on Int’l Day for Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief, It is time to highlight the plight of Kashmiris, religious minorities in India

It said, Modi’s India has become a dangerous place for Muslims as it has denied Kashmiris every right including right to observe their religious prac-tices. Anti-Muslim sentiments have heightened under Modi-ruled India, it added.

The report said, as world shows solidarity for victims of violence based on religion and belief, it must also act to stop violence against Muslims in India.

It said that Hindutva ideology was being pro-moted under the patronage of Modi in India and Hindutva forces led by RSS were hell bent on to purge India of Muslims. Hindutva extremism is an important source of violence against Muslims in contemporary India, it added.

The report said, Modi-led fascist Indian gov-ernment has created a culture of impunity for India-wide campaigns of harassment and violence against Indian Muslims and reports of lynching, physical bashing of Muslims by RSS extremists have become a routine in Modi’s India.

It added, it is time to act against the planned ethnic cleansing of Muslims in IIOJK and across India and to raise the issue of growing violence against Muslims in India.

The report maintained that Modi must be told clearly that violence against Indian Muslims, other religious minorities couldn’t be accepted as Hin-dutva ideology is a threat not only to South Asia but to the whole world.—KMS
