September 19, 2022

Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema headed by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has strongly condemned the arrest of religious scholars in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, saying the detentions were aimed at silencing their voices against the grabbing of thousands of kanals of Waqf land and property.    

According to Kashmir Media Service, Muttahida Majlis-e-Ulema, an amalgam of all religious and social organizations across the Kashmir valley, in a statement in Srinagar deplored that the Modi regime has stooped to a new low to arrest innocent Ulema under draconian laws like Public Safety Act and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act to rob the Kashmiris of their distinct religious and cultural identity.

National Conference has strongly objected to the inclusion of non-local voters in the electoral rolls in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, terming it a great threat to the demography.

National Conference central leader Rattan Lal Gupta said that the recent announcement of Chief Electoral Officer with regard to induction of new 2.5 million non-local voters is aimed at trampling the rights of the Kashmiri people by the BJP government.

In New Delhi, the Congress contested its former leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s claim on Article 370 and said that Indian Supreme Court or a new government can strike down the undemocratic, illegal and unconstitutional revoking of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.

Former APHC-AJK Convener, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement in Islamabad expressed serious concern over political suffocation and widespread arrests of young and old under the current Hindutva regime in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The APHC-AJK organized a prayer session in Islamabad, today, to pay tributes to a renowned Kashmiri freedom activist, Ijaz Ahmad Dar on his 32nd martyrdom anniversary.
