Srinagar, Dec 28: All Party Hurriyat Conference (APHC) led by Miraiz Umar Farooq, has strongly appealed to the international community to take cognizance of the systemic demographic change being foisted upon Muslim majority J&K, by settling outsiders through a new policy of sale of land and natural resources to them.
APHC in a statement said that of Government of India wants to change the demographic character of Muslim majority J&K and disempower its residents through such diktats and measures in order to scuttle the final resolution of the long standing international political dispute of Kashmir in accordance with the Will and aspirations of its people as promised by the international community, based on principles of justice and international law.
Since August 2019, in succession one after other authoritarian laws and diktats are being implemented in J&K towards this end and to facilitate the electoral prospects of the ruling party in India as J&K has become its favourite whipping boy, APHC said, adding, Simultaneously the ruling dispensation is pursuing the divide and rule policy by dividing the population of J&K on the basis of religions, regions, ethnicities and political interests to fracture political aspirations and voices.
APHC said that the situation in J&K is deeply disconcerting and highly repressive as people are the receiving end of this colonial mindset.
It asked people not to lose hope but stay vigilant and alert to these measures, and safeguard their right over their land and resources as much as possible.knt
