Widespread protests held against land eviction drive in IIOJK



In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, protests were held in different areas against the land eviction drive unleashed by the Indian authorities to effect a demographic change.

Scores of people including civil society members and political parties gathered in Islamabad, Kupwara, Rajouri, Poonch, Kistwara and Ramban areas and raised slogans against the draconian order issued by the BJP regime. The protesters demanded the rollback of the anti-Kashmir move.

The BJP regime has started snatching Kashmiris’ land and properties in the name of anti-encroachment drive in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir which is another manifestation of the colonial-settler mindset of the Modi government in occupied Kashmir, they said.

The protesters said that occupation regime is introducing one after other laws aimed at changing the Muslim majority status of the territory into a minority and the eviction drive is part of the same sinister agenda.

The participants of the protest urged the international community including the United Nations to stop the fascist Modi regime from implementing its colonial settler project in the occupied territory.

A protest demonstration was also held against sacrilegious act at Bani in Kathua district. —KMS
