Islamabad: The President Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM) Altaf Ahmed Bhat urged UN and the international community to press India to stop atrocities, oppression and human rights violations in occupied Kashmir, withdraw its troops and start the process for the plebiscite.
The Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement (JKSM) has expressed grave concern over the newly announced housing policy aimed at snatching Kashmiris’ Muslim identity and land.
JKSM president in a statement here in Islamabad today has rejected and denounced the amendment to the Control of Building Operations Act, 1988 and the Jammu & Kashmir Development Act, 1970, which will be used to notifying any areas in J&K as “strategic areas” where the Indian armed forces can carry out unhindered constructions and other related activities etc they deem needful through a special dispensation.
The authorities have approved new policy under which any area can be notified as “strategic areas” where the Indian armed forces can carry out unhindered constructions and other related activities.
Altaf Ahmed Bhat said that now an entire area could be designated as a strategic area which could be taken over and developed for the use of armed forces and their families.
