Islamabad, March 17 (KMS): The ongoing smooth and peaceful census in Azad Jammu and Kashmir is not being digested by India and it has launched its stooges to mislead the international community divert its attention from the worst human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian forces in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
An analytical report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, said in the latest such attempt, New Delhi has hired the services of a self-exiled man, Dr Amjad Ayub Mirza, to spread hatred between the people of Azad Jammu and Kashmir and the people of Pakistan.
It said Dr Amjad Ayub Mirza, who has been in the United Kingdom since 1995 and involved in leftist politics there, in an article used the word “Mother India”, which clearly shows his links with handlers across the border. The claim made in the article by Dr Mirza regarding the people of Azad Kashmir’s so-called grievances is completely baseless, self-assessed and far-beyond reality, it added.
The report said as regards his claim that the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics has rejected the civil society of Azad Kashmir’s demand that Kashmiris be registered as AJK citizens, and not as Pakistanis, has, in fact, no evidence as the people are filling the census form provided online with full dedication and enthusiasm.
The fact that citizens of Azad Kashmir are allowed to purchase and sell property anywhere in Pakistan, whereas Pakistanis do not have the same right, is something that clearly negates Mirza’s assertions and proves that Pakistan considers Jammu and Kashmir as a disputed territory, it said.
On the contrary, the report said, India has disregarded the promises made under the UN resolutions about the disputed nature of Jammu and Kashmir and since August 5, 2019 has allowed its citizens to acquire IIOJK domiciles and get permanently settled in the internationally-recognized disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
At the end, the author in the article also spewed venom against Islamic norms and cultures, which proves that he intends to create ripples in calm waters of Azad Kashmir and also to establish his ties with ‘Mother India’ where Islamophobia is at its peak, the report maintained.
