India accused of planning demographic changes in Indian-held Kashmir

ISLAMABAD: India is planning to change the demography in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) by stationing Hindu terrorist outfit RSS activists for converting the Muslim majority areas into minority, spokesperson for Pakistan’s Foreign Office, Nafees Zakaria, said during his weekly media briefing here Thursday.

He further said, demographic changes in IoK are clear violations of the United Nations Security Council Resolution.

We are closely monitoring the situation in the IoK, he added. RSS activists’ growing presence in IoK is planned to terrorize Kashmiris and discourage them from participating in the self-determination movement, he added.

He said, Pakistan, in line with its policy of extending moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmiris, has sent a letter from the Foreign Advisor Sartaj Aziz to the UN Secretary General to apprise him details on Indian plans of changing the demography in IoK and to seek UN intervention.

He said the RSS has been engaged in stationing its activists and establishing its units in IoK to undermine the freedom movement of the defenseless Kashmiris.

The Indian forces are continuously engaged in ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC) and working boundary, he added.

Renowned Indian media personality Barkha Dutt in her latest op-ed in The Hindustan Times, wrote, “, the (Indian) Army definitely wants political outreach. Soldiers do not want to be used as a substitute for either politicians or policemen. In fact the Army is not in favor of being deployed in situations that pit it against the locals. In the past several high ranking officers have refused to be drawn into managing violent street protests. …”

Expressing his views, writer Krishan Anand recently wrote in Greater Kashmir: “Kashmir is territorially secure, but India is losing its grip on the valley emotionally and psychologically. We can be rest assured that with almost half of the third largest army in the world deployed in Kashmir, the government of India’s grip on the land is firm, but not on its people. As the days go by, is Kashmir slipping out of India’s hands?”
