Islamabad, August 21 (KMS): Leaders of Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Movement (Forum) Muhammad Hussain Khateeb, Muhammad Lateef Lone, Mushtaq Ahmed Zargar, Khawaja Naeem-ul-Hasan and Advocate Mahmood Akhtar Qureshi have strongly condemned the right to vote for Indian citizens in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The Hurriyat leaders in a joint statement said the Bharatiya Janata Party’s conspiracy to continue India’s illegal occupation of Kashmir and divide the people has been exposed.
They said that by giving the right to vote to Indian citizens, India has not only violated the United Nations resolutions and international laws related to Kashmir, but has also made another attack on Kashmir’s identity and culture, which every Jammu and Kashmir has to face.
They said if the world remains silent on this situation or if India continues to be a tool of communalism, it will be impossible to prevent a destructive war. They said that not only Kashmir will be destroyed by this war, but it will engulf the east and the west as well.
The Hurriyat leaders strongly condemned the martyrdom of a Kashmiri, Mini Muhammad, detained in Kot Bhalwal jail, Jammu, by the Indian troops and agencies in a fake encounter near the Line of Control and appealed to the international organizations to stop India from taking illegal actions in IIOJK and play role in giving the Kashmiris their birthright the right to self-determination, which has been promised to them by the United Nations.
