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. »

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.

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.

Islamabad, April 05 (KMS): Prominent religious scholar and leading Mufti of Pakistan, Mufti Muneebur Rehman, has said that since India is illegally occupying Jammu and Kashmir and has deprived its residents of their basic human rights, it is, therefore, absolutely not lawful for the people of the territory to sell their properties, even a small tool like needle, to the Hindus of India.

Mufti Muneebur Rehman issued the fatwa [religious decree] in response to an istifta [religious query] that whether it is lawful for the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir to sell their properties to the Hindus of India to accomplish the objective of the despotic Indian rulers of converting Muslim majority state of Jammu and Kashmir into a minority especially when India in violation of its own constitution, UN resolutions and international law abrogated Articles 35-A and 370 on August 5, 2019?
