Srinagar, August 18 (KMS): The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Masarrat Aalam Butt has called upon the United Nations and the world major powers to prevent India from converting occupied Jammu and Kashmir into a settler colony as Israel is doing in occupied Palestine.
Masarrat Aalam Butt in a message from New Delhi’ Tihar jail said, the whole exercise is meant to render the Muslim majority into a minority in their own homeland. For this purpose, he pointed out that India has started attaching the properties of Kashmiris.
He maintained that the Modi regime under a wicked plan displacing the Kashmiri people from their houses and belongings the way Israel is dislodging the Palestinians from their properties in the occupied land. He said that the Indian government was bringing people from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab and other Indian states to settle them in Jammu and Kashmir. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in India, he added, is planning to settle more than 2.5 million non-locals to win the so-called Kashmir Assembly elections, and also to distort the existing demographic character of the territory.
Addressing to pro-India leadership in IIOJK, who have been instrumental in perpetuating Indian occupation in IIOJK, the APHC chairman asked them to read the writing on the wall after the fresh announcement by the Modi regime and say goodbye to the Indian slavery and join the Kashmir people’s struggle for freedom. “This is how we can save our homeland and people from existential threat” he added.
At the end of his message, the APHC chairman said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir have a long history of freedom struggle and they would never submit to Indian machinations until they get their right to self-determination given by the United Nations under its 5 January 1949 Resolution on Jammu and Kashmir.
