26 civil society members write to Rajnath on Kashmir situation » Kashmir Media Service

New Delhi, April 10 (KMS): Twenty-six civil society members have expressed concern over India’s recent anti-Kashmiris moves including the prohibition of civilian traffic on Srinagar-Jammu highway, ban on Jamaat-e-Islami and Muhammad Yasin Malik-led Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) and arrest of Hurriyat leaders and activists.

The group of twenty-six civil society members including former Kashmir interlocutor Radha Kumar in a letter addressed to the Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that such moves had dented India’s democratic credentials and added to further alienation in occupied Kashmir.

In the letter, the group says that all these moves create conditions which disincentivise the Kashmiris from taking part in the electoral process.

The group, which comprises former civil servants, academics and analysts, wrote the letter to Home Rajnath Singh expressing their “deep distress at the continuing and indeed intensifying alienation of the Kashmiris”.
