Urges people to observe complete shutdown on Saturday

Srinagar, October 29 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has called for peaceful protests on Friday and complete shutdown on Saturday against new laws imposed by India that allow the non-Kashmiris to own land in the territory.

The APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar reacting sharply to the colonial decision of New Delhi to grant land rights to outsiders in IIOJK appealed the brave people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh to resist this nefarious move tooth and nail.

He termed this decision as the worst act of New Delhi’s colonial designs to force demographic change in IIOJK. He said since August 5th 2019, New Delhi has unleashed a battery of such colonial laws and decisions regarding IIOJK to deprive the residents of all political, social, economic, religious, educational, linguistic and cultural rights and now this fresh decision of land-grabbing speaks volumes about its murkier designs about the occupied territory. »
