Asks people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh to stand against move
Srinagar, April 06 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani has warned India of dire consequences if it issues domicile certificates to its citizens.

Syed Ali Gilani in a message issued in Srinagar, today, also said that the people who would issue such certificates would face social boycott. He said that the people of Kashmir must not accept the new domicile law and must fight tooth and nail. He also asked people not to sell their properties to the Indians. He said the occupation forces have brazenly made clear their intentions and have begun their long-cherished plan to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir. He maintained that the only resolution of the Kashmir dispute was the right to self-determination, and no power on earth can take away this right from the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He reiterated that the Kashmiris’ fight would continue till the dawn of freedom.

Syed Ali Gilani said the Indian government wishes to make the referendum issue meaningless and alter the course of freedom struggle. Like other Indian actions, he added, the introduction of new domicile law also violates all international laws. He pointed out that India was following Israel, and wished to replicate its model of settler colonialism to turn Jammu and Kashmir into another Palestine. He said that India played its last card to do so on August 5 last year. He also warned the government officials, authorized to issue these domicile certificates, of dire consequences for collaborating with the occupier, India. »

India denounced for massacring Kashmiri youth

Srinagar, April 06 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the eight-month military siege, now coupled with curfew-like restrictions, which India has imposed in the garb of preventive measures against the spread of coronavirus, has added to the miseries of the hapless Kashmiri people.

The restrictions have created a shortage of daily commodities especially lifesaving medicines, putting the lives of patients at high risk. Drug distributors in Srinagar told media men that lifesaving drugs were not available and the supply had been badly affected particularly during the past two weeks. The continued curbs on internet have also adversely hit mental and physical health of the Kashmiri people.

Hurriyat leaders and organizations including Farooq Ahmad Tawheedi, Islami Tanzeem-e-Azadi and Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League in their separate statements in Srinagar paid glowing tributes to the martyrs of Kulgam, Kupwara and other Kashmiri martyrs and denounced India for massacring innocent youth with each passing day. They also denounced the introduction of a new domicile law by India saying it was meant to change the demographic composition of Jammu and Kashmir. »

Dr. Syed Nazir Gilani

Indian State has scattered the ashes of its constitution in Ganga after BJP came to power. It believes that it could play monkey with the UN Charter and the two cats losing their bread would not chase it to the cliff. Good meaning secular minded Indians, the Muslim world and the world represented by United Nations failed to realise that the forced cum paid mass conversion of Muslims and Christians to Hinduism named “GHAR WAPSI”, was the beginning of a sinister agenda – the Hindutva.

BJP has trashed the secular soul of Indian constitution. Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy told a long-form documentary correspondent Isobel Young, that “Muslims are a different category”, “they are not equal to Hindus”, “they are not equal among equals in Indian constitution”and “any country that has 30% Muslims is in trouble.” Swamy was challenged that it constituted hatred and discrimination against 200 million Muslims and a violation of article 14 of Indian constitution. Subramanian Swamy answered that equality was among equals and Muslims were not equal to Hindus. According to him article 14 of Indian constitution was in line with the Citizenship Bill and the majority in the country supported BJP. In fact BJP had fulfilled one of its election promises. »

Islamabad, April 06 (KMS): The Foreign Office on Sunday dismissed as irresponsible remarks by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s tweet condemning the recent Indian steps to illegally change the demographic profile of India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Spokesperson Ayesha Farooqui said the latest Indian action, aimed at further usurping the fundamental rights of the Kashmiri people through changing the domicile law at a time when the world is busy fighting COVID-19 pandemic, once again betrays the BJP leadership’s rank political opportunism and moral bankruptcy. “India’s incessant regurgitation of the claim that Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is an “internal affair” will neither turn this falsehood into truth nor make this illegality legally valid,” she said in a statement. »
