World Kashmir Awareness Forum rejects India’s illegitimate moves in Kashmir

Washington: The World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF) appealed to the Secretary-General of the United Nations to impress upon India the disputed nature of the Kashmir, India’s longstanding commitments on this issue, and, the urgent need to fulfill umpteen UN Security Council Resolutions regarding Kashmir.

The United Nations must remind India of the disputed nature of the occupied territory, and the need to fulfill the UN Security Council Resolutions on the issue. The BJP rulers in New Delhi must be reminded that their actions are in direct conflict with the Geneva Conventions and international law. The world community and the people of conscience must impress upon India that in a democracy, legitimacy flows only from the freely given consent of the governed.

The World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF) is distressed by and condemns the Indian government’s recent attempts at changing the demographic status of Jammu & Kashmir by introducing the tendentious and politically motivated rules in the occupied territory, at a time when the whole world is grappling with a pandemic of epic proportions.

In a wanton display of disregard for the aspiration of the Kashmiris, the Indian government is about to introduce an undemocratic delimitation measure which aims at constitutional entrenchment of a Hindu majoritarian agenda to dispossess the people of Kashmir.

The aim of this revisionist and motivated rewriting of history is to alter the demographic character of the Muslim-majority territory at a time when the world’s attention is focused on the worst public health and economic crises of our times. These cynical attempts to seize the opportunity and take advantage of the prevailing global circumstances are reflective of the toxic and fascist mindset of the Hindutva regime in New Delhi.
