APHC condemned the process to change the demographic character of Kashmir

Srinagar: All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement today, said that the process to change the demographic character of Jammu and Kashmir started in August 2019 is being systematically carried forward and the recent domicile order issued by the Government of India is part of that plan.

Such orders are meant to facilitate the inflow and settlement of people from outside the state into J&K to turn the local residents of the state into a minority.

These attempts not only undermine the efforts for peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue , but are an assault on the prospects of employment and growth of our youth and future generations of Jammu and Kashmir and their rights and an attempt to erode the unique cultural heritage of the regions.

APHC said that since August 2019 all such orders by GOI and the manner in which they are being thrust and implemented on people of J&K has been deeply distressing and painful for the people to say the least.

APHC appealed to the global community and people with a conscience in India, to wake up to what is happening in J&K and respond to our situation in the light of ethics and principles of justice.

APHC reiterated that the internationally acknowledged issue of J&K has to be resolved peacefully as per the wishes of its people and between India Pakistan and the people of entire J&K the three parties to the conflict.
