We stand in solidarity with Kashmiris in their rejection of the fascist BJP regime installing a Hindu Chief Minister in IIOJK.
The August 5 retraction of Kashmir status as an autonomous state is strongly objected. The abrogation of article 370 and 35 (A) of the constitution of India is against the UN decision.
The occupied disputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir is a violation of the UN Resolution 47. UN mandated for a plebiscite and self determination for the Kashmiris and India ignored it.
The so-called assembly polls to give voting rights to Indian Hindus in IIOJK is a colonial agenda of domination through demographic change of voters.
If this exercise goes through, the majority Muslim Kashmiris will be turned into aliens and subjugated in their own land.
Installing a local fascist in Jammu and Kashmir will signal a total occupation under a foreign force.
Voters from a foreign land will spell disaster for the existence of the Kashmiris.
Bringing a Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir under Hindu rule is a brazen violations of UN resolutions and it is a manifestation of the Hindutva agenda to be imposed in Jammu and Kashmir.
Resettlement of Hindus from India is likened to the Jews occupation of Palestine. The brazen strategy of inflating the Hindu population in IIOJK against the local populace is a colonial settlement venture.
We reject vehemently the BJP’s heinous change of the status of Kashmir, the occupation and the political meandering of the electoral constituency with the aim to dominate Kashmir.
August 5, 2019 was a scheme to strengthen the grip on Jammu and Kashmir. Marginalizing Kashmiris in the electoral process is a bid to control Jammu and Kashmir.
This is tantamount to negate the UN resolution and international law. Hindutva is a religion-colonial agenda to establish a Hindu nation and civilization by annihilation of a race or religious co-existence.
Under Hindu rule with backing from RSS, democratic processes is totally erased and every person living in India must submit to the Hindutva scheme and nothing else.
We regret the silence of the world community. Kashmir being a subjugated territory with its people denied of the right to self determination cannot be seen as a non significant international issue. The blatant violation and abuse of human rights by the Indian BJP regime is too glaring for it to be ignored.
India is scheming to totally wipe off the Muslims in Kashmir vis a vis genocide. Evidence of ethnic cleansing is rampant . Neither do the Indian regime respect the lives of the Kashmiri people nor their fundamental right to self-determination.
We urge for an international intervention without delay to stop the BJP from furthering its agenda of Hindutva in Jammu and Kashmir. Violating the UN resolution cannot be tolerated.
