He said, all of the Indian acts including constant occupation, killing of the innocent people, revocation of special status and merging of Jammu and Kashmir into the its federal territory and modifying of domicile rules in the occupied Kashmir are illegal.

India is continually committing worst state terrorism for the last over seventy-four years to continue its illegal hold on Jammu and Kashmir, he said.
