Indian constitution has no basis in Kashmir: Farooq Rehmani

Islamabad, January 25, 2013 (PPI-OT): The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League (JKPFL), Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, has urged the Indian rulers to read writing on the wall and give the people of Kashmir their inalienable right to self-determination.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani in a statement issued in Islamabad also called upon the international community to intervene in this regard in line with the UN Security Council resolutions on Kashmir to resolve the dispute peacefully without any further delay.

He denounced India’s role in Jammu and Kashmir saying that from day one New Delhi was pursuing repressive and rigid policy to keep the territory under its illegal control and it was due to this policy that the Kashmiris had been observing the 26th January, the Indian Republic Day, as a Black Day for the last 63 years.

Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said, “Kashmir’s so-called accession with India has no popular base, as it was forced by military intervention, occupation and repression, and so was the case with the constitution of India that has been thrust on Jammu and Kashmir on 26th January, 1950, without holding plebiscite in the region, disregarding and ridiculing not only United Nation resolutions, but also the direct pledges of Indian rulers with the Kashmiris.”

The JKPFL Chairman said that beyond any doubt India had been ruling the disputed territory by military might and not by any moral, political or legal right and the repressive and draconian laws were indicative of her miss-governance in Kashmir.

He said that the Kashmiris were never allowed to live in peace in their own homeland; prisons were filled with political detainees, inhuman interrogation centers with suspects, and now scores of young Kashmiris had been sentenced for life or were in death cells as pronounced by courts under the military/police laws; still the Indian rulers would claim of their false and ridiculous democracy in Jammu and Kashmir and would never be ashamed of killing and humiliating the people in or outside of their homes.

Farooq Rehmani maintained that Kashmir would never become India’s integral part and its inhabitants would not kneel down before it nor any generation would ever forget their martyrs or forcibly disappeared youngsters.

He said that the Kashmiris were not slaves, urging India, Pakistan and the UN to resolve the dispute in line with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people, failing which the whole region would get destabilized with unpredictable consequences.
