Srinagar,(Parliament Times): All Parties Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Dr. Umar Farooq has condemned in strong terms the Indian government’s move of issuing new ordinances aimed at changing the demographic complexion of the Muslim majority state of Jammu and Kashmir.
In a statement issued here on Wednesday the APHC chairman said, “In this pandemic of epic proportions Govt of India was sneakily speeding up new ordinances to effect demographic change in Jammu and Kashmir and turn its residents into a minority in due course of time”. All this he said was being done at the time of the pandemic lockdown which follows the August lockdown so that people already under duress due to the repeated lockdowns are unable to protest it, makes it more condemnable. “Govt of India believes that at this time the world is distracted by the pandemic to take notice, so it fervently appeals to the global community and people with a conscience in India, to wake up to these happening in J&K and respond to our situation in the light of ethics and principles of justice”, the statement said.
APHC reiterated that “J&K is an internationally acknowledged issue that has to be resolved peacefully as per the wishes of its people and between India Pakistan and the people of entire J&K the three parties to the conflict”.
