In order to advance the Hindutva agenda by bringing the demographic change on fast-track, the Modi led fascist Indian regime has identified 29 locations to establish permanent camps for an Indian paramilitary organization, the Central Reserve Police Force battalions in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The decision was taken at a meeting held at the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs in New Delhi, which was attended by officials from the government and the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force. The CRPF has provided a list of nine locations from Jammu region and 20 from Kashmir valley for the establishment of its camps.
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar while strongly reacting to the Indian government’s decision to acquire hundreds of acres of land for construction of CRPF camps said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir would resist the plan, tooth, and nail. He said Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognized dispute and settlement of outsiders in the territory is violation of the UN resolutions on Kashmir. Hailing the sacrifices and contribution of the veteran Hurriyat leader, Syed Ali Gilani, who has turned 91-year-old, the spokesman said that the towering leader had proved himself as a true symbol of uncompromising resistance against the forced occupation of the territory by India.
Hurriyat leader Shabbir Ahmed Dar and rights activist Mohammed Ahsan Untoo in a joint statement issued in Srinagar demanded the imposition of sanctions against India for its inhuman treatment to the Kashmiris and minorities in India by the present dispensation in New Delhi.
The European Union has expressed concern over the Indian government’s actions against the prominent human rights watchdog Amnesty International. The Amnesty in a statement on Tuesday said reprisals from the Modi government have forced the organization to halt its operations in India.
In what believed by legal experts a mockery of justice, an Indian court has acquitted all the 32 main culprits involved in the demolition of Babri Masjid, including BJP veterans L K Advani and M M Joshi. What is more mocking and ridiculing is the proclamation by the special court of Central Bureau of Investigation in Lucknow today that there was no conclusive proof against the culprits. However, the experts contradict the court and say that the Masjid was demolished in broad daylight in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, and all the faces involved in the dirty game can easily be recognized through videos and TV footages.
