The Indian government has faced humiliation as Amnesty International demanded to immediately stop its anti-encroachment drive in IIOJK. Amnesty International said, “The ongoing demolitions appear to be an extension of the brutal human rights violations the region of Jammu and Kashmir, the only Muslim majority region of India, has historically witnessed. These demolitions could amount to forced evictions which constitute a gross violation of human rights.” Aakar Patel, Chair of the board for Amnesty International India said that the ongoing demolitions appear to be an extension of the brutal HRVs in the Muslim majority region in IIOJK. He also said that no one should be made homeless or vulnerable to other human rights violations because of evictions. He said that the Indian authorities must immediately halt the demolition drive and ensure that safeguards against forced evictions as outlined in international human rights standards.
It is pertinent to mention here that Modi is swiftly acting to grab Kashmiris’ land to turn the whole of J&K into its colony. This is the latest addition to the weapons being used by the BJP government, likely they have the UAPA, PSA, NIA, ED, and other law agencies to persecute and uproot the people of Jammu and Kashmir from their homes.
Evicting people from the lands which have been under their possession for generations is yet another step in colonizing Kashmir. IIOJK admin’s new order on land encroachment is part of Modi’s sinister act to snatch Kashmiri’s land. Modi is converting IIOJK into a settler colony as Israel is doing in occupied Palestine. The colonization of IIOJK has since long been a dream of RSS and BJP. India removed the barrier for non-locals to settle in IIOJK by revoking Art 370. Modi’s ultimate aim is to efface Muslim identity, and establish Hindu civilization in J&K. People of Kashmir have unanimously rejected the Indian narrative of normalcy, prosperity, and improved law and order being propagated through Godi Media after August 2019.
