Amending PRC, ploy to change state’s demography: JRL
Srinagar: Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) on Monday said that repeatedly New Delhi is devising means and methods to erode and undermine the disputed status of J&K by fiddling with the state subjects laws in order to change the demographic composition of the state, and the new controversy about Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC) as reported in media is part of that.
“As part of the Doval doctrine borrowed from Israel, this policy of assaulting Kashmiri’s on all accounts, physical, economical and psychological, in order to put intense pressure on them to tire them out, to give up their legitimate struggle, has now become well known by now,” JRL comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, said in a statement issued here.
“But what New Delhi refuses to acknowledge is that it may have groups of collaborators in the form of regional pro India parties who for the lust of chair help GOI in taking illegitimate roots here. But the people of Kashmir have not for a year or two but for past three long decades withstood severe state repression with full resilience and strong resolve and not budged an inch from striving for their basic right. And that is what they will continue to do, come what may,” the trio said.
The leaders said that “unfortunately these regional parties who could have represented Kashmirs interests in New Delhi instead always chose to dance to India’s tune when on chair and once out of it became public sympathizers again for the sake of the chair hence exploiting people either way.”
They said people of J&K are politically far more mature and know how to withhold every challenge thrown their way by New Delhi and defeat it by their collective might and determination.
Referring to the statement by union home minister that J&K is an integral part of India, JRL said, “It is a fact that by way of its huge military might New Delhi controls the territory of J&K and rules over it, but by virtue of people’s will it (GOI) knows it does not. And that is precisely why it refuses to honour its commitment of giving the people of J&K the right to self determination and resolving the internationally accepted Kashmir dispute.”
JRL said that no amount of repetition that Kashmir is an integral part, can undermine the historical and ground realities of the dispute.
Meanwhile, spokesperson on behalf of JRL condemned the continued detention of Mohammad Yasin Malik and expressed serious concern over his deteriorating health in jail, the continued house arrest of Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who was again put under house arrest late last night.
They said that repeated illegal detention of its leadership is deplorable.
The JRL appealed people from all strata and walks of life to observe the human rights violation week commencing today till 9th of December by strongly registering their protest and resentment against it in every manner they can.
