WE STRONGLY CONDEMN THE VIOLENCE AT THE LOC INITIATED BY THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE
The Kashmir Diaspora Alliance strongly condemns the use of force on the LOC by the Indian government in order to maintain its illegal occupation over Kashmir. It has failed to realize the fact that it originally occupied the territory of 42000 square milesunder the precept of maintaining law and order over six decades ago and has yet to withdraw. The maintenance of law and order was the assurance of the then Prime Minister of Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru. Instead of leaving as promised, it has furthered its hegemonic ambitions by occupying various other territories such as Sikh Homeland Punjab, Khalistan, Junagar, Hyderabad, Manawa etc. increasing its material power at the cost of grave human rights violations and death. After six decades of illegal occupation it is now aggressively attacking Pakistani soldiers on the ceasefire line (LoC) in the region of Jammu and Kashmir. As a result, everyday casualties are mounting on both sides. The Indian government has failed to understand that one who owns something will go to any means necessary in order to defend and hold onto what belongs to them as Pakistan is clearly doing so. On the other hand, India as the occupier must realize that it has a choice, and must choose justice which can only come through disengaging and withdrawing every single armed and civil personnel from Maqbooza Kashmir.
