VILLAGE DEFENCE GUARD (VDG) KILLS HIS WIFE IN SURANKOTE POONCH, IOJK

Indian government in an unprecedented and hastily planned move has formed an armed force (VDG) on illegal bases, the decision had already drawn a lot of criticism at domestic and international level. Kashmiris are fearful of Indian government’s decision to form VDG’s and arming them with fire arms without any regulations and proper/ regular training.

The latest incident has sent a wave in the region and people believe that such incidents would increase where trigger happy novices would indiscriminately use fire arms against innocent people.

Over 5,000 members of the VDGs, majority of them Hindus have been given rifles and more queuing up to get arms in various districts of Jammu region in the last few days. It is pertinent to mention that the past record of VDC guards (approx. x 28000 strength) also augment the worries of masses, still a huge number of cases (200 FIRs related to the cases of murder, rape, rioting and drugs registered against the VDC guards) are pending.

ISRAELI MODEL NOW IN INDIA: AN OPPOSITION MUSLIM LEADER’S HOUSE BULLDOZED IN IOJK

On 26 January 2023, the Lieutenant Governor’s administration demolished an opposition Muslim leader’s house in Indian-administered Kashmir, branding it as an illegal construction. On the instructions of the Indian govt, the Revenue department razed down a portion of a house belonging to the wife of NC leader and ex-minister Ali Muhammad Sagar in Srinagar. According to officials, Mr. Sagar’s wife Saleema owns three Kanals (0.375 acres) and 16 Marlas (0.1 acres) under Khasra No. 1015 near the Srinagar airport located in Budgam district. It is not a new thing in IIOJK, as earlier Indian Police demolished the homes of several Muslims. It is pertinent to mention that India is using new tactics to grab the properties of Muslim leaders to stifle the voices of Muslims.

As part of a political vendetta, Indian law enforcement agencies have started a crackdown against the Muslim leaders and pro-freedom people of IIOJK. Since 5th August 2019, the IIOJK authorities have seized a number of assets belonging to pro-freedom Kashmiris to break their resolve, but such moves have failed to deter the Kashmiris from pursuing their internationally recognized right to self-determination. India is using the Israeli model of illegal occupation in IIOJK.

Despite being condemned and criticized for grave violations of human rights by UNHRC, Amnesty International, and other HR organizations, India has displayed utter disregard for its obligation to international norms and binding

“Indian Security Forces Bust Terror Recruitment Module in J&K – Is This a Part of BJP’s Plan to Disrupt Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra?”

Indian security forces have reportedly broken up a terrorist recruitment module in the Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir, successfully rescuing five youths, including two juveniles. It is being suggested that the recent terror attacks in the area could be a BJP-planned attempt to disrupt Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra in IIOJ&K. In response, the Indian state-sponsored media has been quick to blame Pakistan and has condemned the offered peace initiative from Pakistan’s Prime Minister. Additionally, the Indian media has become a spokesperson for the BJP, criticizing PDP and MC for their remarks calling for the Indian government to stop human rights violations and cease the demolition of Muslim homes and properties in IIOJK.

Pakistan appears to have recognized that they cannot win on the battlefield, hence resorting to the tactic of proxies, according to General Bakshi, “The new strategy of Pakistan is now evident.”

They use booby traps to attack & inflict maximum damage. Senior CRPF officials have gathered evidence from the site of twin blasts in Jammu’s Baramulla area.”

“Living in Fear: Indian Minorities Unjustly Excluded from Republic Day Celebrations Despite Constitutional Protections”.

Indian minorities do not feel any excitement for Republic Day due to the lack of recognition of their rights in the Indian Constitution. Reports from the Mumbai-based Centre for Study of Society and Secularism and the UK-based Minority Rights Group International suggest that minorities are facing hate crimes, such as lynching and forced conversions. In response, the United Liberation Front of Assam-Independent (ULFA-I) and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) issued a joint statement calling for a “total shutdown” on Republic Day. As a result, ethnic and religious minorities feel unsafe in a country where Hindu extremists are attempting to establish a Hindu Rashtra. The Naxalbari movement might even lead to a breakup of India into a variety of states.

But today’s India is anything but a secular state. RSS/BJP has embarked on an arduous journey to make India a Hindu Rashtra where Hindus will be superior and non-Hindus will have no place; its practical reflection can be seen in today’s India. India once again built a false narrative of a strong union through Republic Day celebrations. However, the Indian union is fake and historically made of coercion, annexation, and false promise. Indian minorities saw their future in separate homelands as an impeding outcome of a pseudo-republic.

“Religious Minorities Under Siege: Unraveling the Fascist Mask of Narendra Modi’s Regime”.

Since the BJP, led by Narendra Modi, assumed power in 2014, religious minorities have experienced the worst kind of persecution. The Modi government has left no stone unturned to bring about India’s transformation into a Hindu Rashtra, disregarding the Constitutional obligation enshrined in Article 25 (1), which stipulates equal rights for all persons to practice, profess, and propagate religion. By disregarding the concerns of minorities including Muslims, Christians, and Sikhs, who have been subjected to unfair treatment in regard to their rights to food, clothing, marriage, and places for worship, their efforts to maintain India’s secular character have proven fruitless. This has exposed the ultra-nationalistic and oppressive nature of Modi’s administration.

In June 1984, Indian Army attacked the familiar Golden Temple along with 41 other gurdwaras of the Sikh community all across the Indian Punjab. This assault was codenamed “Operation Blue Star” and this marked the beginning of gross violations of Human Rights. This operation was marked by Sikh leaders as the genocide of the Sikh community. They are still wounded by the thought that their leader was killed in this operation. The Indian government had imposed draconian media censorship to hide the gruesome war crimes against Sikhs during ‘Operation Blue Star’ by their Army. 

Post this gruesome incident, 20,000 Sikh families fearing for their life migrated out from India. Many of them resigned from their jobs and returned medals they had received from the Indian authorities as a protest against the attack on Golden Temple. These historical moves were always deliberate in nature whether it was the Golden temple or Babri Masjid, whether it was Sikhs or Muslims. Perturbed by demands of the Khalistan referendum, the Indian establishment, using RAW and other tools working on a deliberate plan to repeat the episode of Operation Blue Star. In such circumstances possibility of India using the Army to oppress the Sikh’s peaceful struggle cannot be ruled out. Sikhs need to be aware of Indian machinations and the world community must take notice of Indian high-handedness. 

Indian political leadership has built up a case against ‘Sikh for Justice’ and other pro-Khalistan set-ups abroad. “India is using its discredited media to establish a link between the Khalistan movement with Pakistan. Indian history is full of such false flag operations. On the pretext of Khalistan separatism, India might use security forces to break the will of those having dissenting views with New Delhi.
