August 12, 2019

In India, separatist groups of Manipur and Assam have announced to boycott Independence Day celebrations of India in protest over annexation attempt of occupied Kashmir. 

The groups say Article 370 dilution and the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union territories disregards democracy. 

In a statement, the groups said the scrapping of Article 370 and the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir without the consent of the people of the State show India’s arrogance and blatant disregard for democratic principles.

 They said freedom from India’s colonial yoke is the only way to save ourselves from being swallowed by Hindustan. 

The two groups said the political control of India by the BJP has “enhanced the Hinduisation process rapidly”.
