In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior vice-president of Jammu and Kashmir Awami National Conference (JKANC) Muzaffar Ahmad Shah while reacting to the recent amend-ment in Domicile law said that they just want Kashmir to be the same as was on August 04, 2019.
Muzaffar Ahmad Shah in an interview in Srina-gar said anyone from outside, who has lived in Kashmir for the last fifteen years, can claim for Domicile which the people of Kashmir will never accept.
The Modi government is saying that the child who has been studying here for the last 7 years can also get a job in Kashmir, which will have a profound effect on the employment of our local youth, he said.
Muzaffar Shah also said the recent amendment in Domicile law will directly change the demogra-phy of Kashmir in the next few years.
Earlier, on Wednesday the IIOJK administration rolled out the process to issue domicile certificates to the spouses of women, who are married outside of the occupied territory.
Prior to August 05, 2019, when Modi regime stripped IIOJK of its special status, husbands of Kashmiri women married outside the territory had no right to buy the property or apply for jobs in IIOJK, while now with the amendment in the J&K Domicile Act, they will have all the rights now.
The Indian government has authorised tehsildars to issue such certificates against a valid proof of marriage and a domicile certificate of spouse, while the deputy commissioner will be the appellate au-thority for the same.—KMS
