WE ARE PAKISTANIS AND PAKISTAN IS OURS AND IN ACTUALITY MAQBOOZA KASHMIR AND PAKISTAN ARE INSEPARABLE: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

WE ARE PAKISTANIS AND PAKISTAN IS OURS AND IN ACTUALITY MAQBOOZA KASHMIR AND PAKISTAN ARE INSEPARABLE: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, 
THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

Mir Abdullahs are easily available everywhere and all times. India along with its collaborators has been trying to hide its crimes committed in Maqbooza Kashmir for decades now as it knows that it is Pakistan‘s legal territory which has been illegally occupied since October 27, 1947. It has hired people from hill areas to defame Pakistan in particular on the facebook. These people are using their last name or surname as Kashmiris. Their job is to post fictitious and horrific stories on the Facebook in a way that portrays Pakistan’s treatment with its people living in Ghazi Kashmir as cruel and no less than the Indian atrocities committed in Maqbooza Kashmir. These people in fact have forgotten that Ghazi Kashmir is the sixth province of Pakistan and treated exactly at par to other five provinces. We still maintain that the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir are proud Pakistanis. https://www.facebook.com/kucheyrashid/videos/1098593023501604/


Conversely, India has deployed more than 700,000 soldiers who are carrying out genocide against the Muslims of Maqbooza Kashmir to suppress their voice for freedom. Maqbooza Kashmir is virtually devoid of human rights. To this day, the Indian regime and its armed forces have murdered more than 202,902 citizens, made 216,094 arrests, 110,317 have disappeared, 116,082 homes have been demolished, leaving 123,092 widows and 207,635 orphans to say the very least. These agents have sold their souls for monetary gains or their hearts are filled with hate, or jealousy against Pakistan progress. We the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir are standing shoulder to shoulder with our brothers in Pakistan, as we are rightfully a part of Pakistan and no power on the earth detach us. Regards,

THE DECISION OF HARI SINGH ON OCTOBER 27, 1947 HOLDS NO LEGITIMACY TODAY: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

THE DECISION OF HARI SINGH ON OCTOBER 27, 1947 HOLDS NO LEGITIMACY TODAY: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE



ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

The dispute of Maqbooza Kashmir is purely a territorial dispute between India and Pakistan. India had its eye on this region and since the initial creation of Pakistan never wanted this region fall into the hands of Pakistan. It felt and still feels that control of Kashmir is essential to its hegemonic aspirations. It was also successful in occupying three states; Junagar, Hyderabad, and Manawa along with the Sikh Homeland Khalistan. On October 27, 1947, on the request of Hari Singh the Hindu ruler of Kashmir, India sent there forces and occupied 42,000 square miles. In fact, once the British government backed the creation of Pakistan, the Hindu ruler of Kashmir was automatically no longer relevant as this was a Muslim majority state. As such, his request to call Indian armed forces holds no legitimacy. The state of Maqbooza Kashmir also had already decided to join Pakistan on July 19, 1947.


Unfortunately, India bribed leaders like Mir Abdullah (who was a leader just like Mir Jaffar and Mir Saddiq who were traitors). It is this betrayal which has led to the development of history as we see it today and through widespread propaganda has even effectively confused many. Rather than returning this territory back to Pakistan, the Indian government has ascribed the state into its constitution. There can never be peace between India and Pakistan until India hands over Maqbooza Kashmir to its rightful owner as already over 200,000 have been murdered there. Despite these sacrifices, the zeal to join Pakistan has not faded until this day.

QUAID-E-INQALAB SYED ALI GEELANI’S THE LIBERATION LEADER OF MAQBOOZA KASHMIR BARRED FROM VISITING ABROAD BY THE OCCUPANT INDIAN FORCES: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

QUAID-E-INQALAB SYED ALI GEELANI’S THE LIBERATION LEADER OF MAQBOOZA KASHMIR BARRED FROM VISITING ABROAD BY THE OCCUPANT INDIAN FORCES: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, 
THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!


Quiad-e-Inqalab Geelani was invited to attend a conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) this month. The Indian occupant government has issued instructions that he cannot leave the country advising that “His (Geelani’s) passport has been suspended for four weeks,” a senior official told Greater Kashmir. http://www.greaterkashmir.com/news/kashmir/govt-suspends-geelani-s-passport-for-4-weeks/197294.html. India is occupying Pakistan’s lawful territory which approximates 42,000 square miles (known as Maqbooza Kashmir) along with enslaving its about 9 million citizen by forces since October 27, 1947. Initially, Indian forces entered the state to maintain law and order but have stayed there using one excuse or another. Indian government claims that it is world largest democracy and a human rights advocate. But in reality it is restricting the people of its occupied territory from travelling.

THE BLOOD AND SWEAT IN THE LIBERATION OF AZAD KASHMIR THE SIXTH PROVINCE OF PAKISTAN BLESSES IT WITH THE TITLE OF GHAZI KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, CHAIRMAN OF KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

THE BLOOD AND SWEAT IN THE LIBERATION OF AZAD KASHMIR THE SIXTH PROVINCE OF PAKISTAN BLESSES IT WITH THE TITLE OF GHAZI KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, CHAIRMAN OF KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

Despite the Indian sub-continent partition plan to create a Muslim majority state, and the inhabitants’ verdict in the resolution passed under the leadership of Sardar Ibrahim Khan (Ghazi-e-Millat) on July 19, 1947, the Indian government refused to give the Muslim majority state to Pakistan. Meanwhile, in order to fulfill its nefarious design, it collaborated with so called Muslim leaders like Sheikh Abdullah, also known as Mir Abdullah of Kashmir (a term synonymous to Mir Jaffar and Mir Sadiq the famous traitors of Islam). Due to the division among the people, the Indian forces managed to illegally occupy 42,000 square miles of the state of Jammu and Kashmir AKA Maqbooza Kashmir. Thereafter, Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan with the help of Pathans liberated about 4,000 square miles areas of the state known as Pakistan’s Kashmir (incorrectly termed Azad Kashmir). Furthermore, we must call to mind the great sacrifices that heroes like Chaudhry Ghulam Abbas (Quaid-e-Kashmir) have done for the cause of Kashmir. In commemoration of the sacrifices and the initiative taken by these heroes, Azad Kashmir is being re-named as Ghazi Kashmir. The moment Maqbooza Kashmir is liberated from Indian occupation it will join as seventh province. INSHALLAH.  Regards,

WE STRONGLY CONDEMN THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT FOR ARRESTING DUKHTARAN-E-MILLAT CHIEF ASIYA ANDRAB FOR OBJECTING ITS BAN ON THE USE OF BEEF IN MQBOOZA KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

WE STRONGLY CONDEMN THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT FOR ARRESTING DUKHTARAN-E-MILLAT CHIEF ASIYA ANDRAB FOR OBJECTING ITS BAN ON THE USE OF BEEF IN MQBOOZA KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, 
THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE



ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

Kashmir Diaspora Alliance strongly condemns the actions of the Indian Government for arresting Asiya Andrabi, the Chief of Dukhtaran-e-Millat for raising her voice against restrictions imposed to use beef in the state. The so called world’s largest democracy has continuously been carrying out genocide in the occupied territory. It has already butchered over 200,000 innocent Muslims to suppress their voice for freedom. What a paradox; it is banning beef and at the same time promoting the usage of alcohol.  

The Srinagar court on Saturday remanded Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Asiya Andrabi to three days police custody in connection with the case registered against her for objecting India decision to ban the use of beef in the occupied territory. Asiya, who was arrested along with her personal secretary from Soura residence on Friday, was introduced before court of City Munsiff who remanded her to 3 days police remand. The spokesperson quoting Asiya also ridiculed the claim of police that she was arrested while trying to break the cordon last night. “Asiya Andrabi, who was produced before a court, said that the police claim is a white lie and the fact of the matter is that I was asleep when my door was knocked and taken into custody,” the spokesperson said. She said that the police was trying to justify the “illogical arrest by making false claims.”

It is common to kill the Muslims through fake encounters and unlawfully arresting them under draconian laws. Another renowned liberation leader Massarat Aalam is still under Police custody. He was arrested in connection with the case registered against him for allegedly hoisting Pakistani flag. The inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir spirit cannot be defeated by these measures and the Muslims will keep striving for their accession with Pakistan despite this oppression. Indian government must understand that it cannot suppress the voice of the people by killing, maiming, and dishonoring of females.

THE ENTIRE NATION OF PAKISTAN IS A STAKEHOLDER IN THE LIBERATION OF MAQBOOZA KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

THE ENTIRE NATION OF PAKISTAN IS A STAKEHOLDER IN THE LIBERATION OF MAQBOOZA KASHMIR: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE



ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

Without prejudice, the whole state of Jammu and Kashmir is a lawful part of and the inhabitants are bona fide citizens of Pakistan.  As per Indian sub-continent partition plan being a Muslim majority state, and the inhabitants as well gave their verdict in the resolution passed under the leadership of Sardar Ibrahim Khan (Ghazi-e-Millat) on July 19, 1947 that princely state will join with Pakistan. It is not legitimate to object on the basis that a full referendum was not conducted on July 1947 to decide for who Jammu and Kashmir would accede to. The fates of nations have not been decided through full referendums for the most part in the past. For example, for the decision of the division of India in two separate nations by Muslim League was made in the personal residence of Khwaja Salimullah Bahadur the Nawab of Dhaka called Ahsan Manzil while less than 10 others were present.

This is not the case that if there is a problem with the Sindhi speaking of India that only Muslims of Sindh will go to help them. Similarly, if there is a problem in Maqbooza Kashmir, the people of Ghazi Kashmir (mistakenly known as Azad Kashmir) will not just go and aid them. It is the responsibility of the government of Pakistan to take appropriate action.

The Jewish people have once again tricked the Muslims of Palestine just like it had been done by the British when they fooled the Arab world that they are a different nation than that of the Turks. Through this, they were able to dismember the Ottoman Empire. Just like this, the state of Israel has convinced the people of Palestine that they are a separate nation from the Arab world and as such they have been occupied for decades. The liberation movement of Maqbooza Kashmir can never be transferred to the nationalists. It is the duty of the nation of Pakistan to liberate them. Regards,

MUSLIMS ARE ONE NATION AS DECLARED BY THE ORDER OF ALLAH (SWT) AND REGIONALISM, CASTES, OR SECTS HAVE NO PLACE: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

MUSLIMS ARE ONE NATION AS DECLARED BY THE ORDER OF ALLAH (SWT) AND REGIONALISM, CASTES, OR SECTS HAVE NO PLACE: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, 
THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE





ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

The two-nation theory was the founding principle of the Pakistani Movement and the partition of India and its 560 princely states in 1947. The ideology that religion is the main factor in defining the nationality of Indian Muslims was used by Muslim scholars. They called it 'the awakening of Muslims for the creation of Pakistan'. The fact is that Muslims are one nation as declared by Allah (SWT), as such there is no place for regionalism, caste, or sects.

Another unfortunate situation is that of the Sikh nation whose inherited state was merged into India by labelling them Hindus. They are continuously claiming for the past 67 years that they are Sikhs, not Hindus but the colonizer India is not ready to listen to them. Similarly, Pakistan’s states such as Manava, Junagarah, and Hyderabad have also been occupied by force and merged into Indian Union. It is a time to dismember India not Pakistan.

Aside from this it must be noted that there is no such thing as independent Kashmir it is an integral part of Pakistan. India has forcibly occupied it since October 27, 1947. Make no mistakes; as soon as it is liberated it will join with Pakistan. Those who are propagating for free Kashmir are Indian agents and want to deter Pakistan from Kashmir claim. Had Maqbooza Kashmir becomes independent state Pakistan would lose its legal part and India would still rule it by proxy like Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim, and Maldives.

ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

At present, Pakistan has six provinces including Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan’s Kashmir (mistakenly known as Azad Kashmir), Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan, and Khyber Pukktoon Khawa and those that reside in these provinces are all citizens of Pakistan. A brother living in Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir is not superior to a citizen living in Nawab Shah, Sindh or Quetta, Baluchistan. They must be treated equally. If there is any preferential treatment being provided by the Pakistani government, this should end immediately and the above has been a reality since the countries inception. There should be no more mantra of disputed territory in particular with Kashmir as all parts of the state are a lawful part of Pakistan. As long as Pakistan is weak, it will never be able to liberate Maqbooza Kashmir as no nation in the international sphere will listen. Therefore, we must unite to make our nation strong, and when this is a reality, liberate Maqbooza Kashmir and have it accede to Pakistan as its seventh province as there is no concept of an independent Kashmir. This is the goal of India where it would have the parts of Pakistan divided into small areas and rule them as proxies. 

If we look at past historical facts, we can also see how India had destroyed the Sikh Homeland Punjab Khalistan by dividing it into three different states such as Himachal, Haryana and Punjab. It has also occupied Junagar, Hyderabad, Manawa, and dismembered East Pakistan by fooling them that they are a separate people. As mentioned above Maqbooza Kashmir is a legal part of Pakistan and has been occupied for decades now just by fooling Sheikh Abdullah that they are Kashmiris first. The irony is that the Hindus in Maqbooza Kashmir are stating that they are Indian first.

PAKISTAN MUST ESTABLISH MORE PROVINCES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

PAKISTAN MUST ESTABLISH MORE PROVINCES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE: 
HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

The present setup of six provinces in Pakistan consisting of Pakistan’sKashmir also known as Azad Kashmir (de facto), Sindh, Khyber Pukhtun Khawa, Gilgit Baltistan, Punjab, and Baluchistan has not proven to be successful. Unfortunately, the masses are badly divided and have assumed allegiances to their regional area. After the incident of 1971 wherein East Pakistan was dismembered, these provinces were given too much power leaving the federal government weak. This can be clearly witnessed through the fact that the Kala Bagh Dam has still not been constructed.

As far as Pakistan’s Kashmir is concerned, it is an integral part of Pakistan no matter what the outcome of Maqbooza Kashmir is. It is essential to understand that all of Kashmir is a part of Pakistan for two main reasons; it is a Muslim majority state and the people have already given their verdict on July 19, 1947 to be a part of Pakistan. By keeping it a separate entity, India has not handed over Maqbooza Kashmir to Pakistan for the past 67 years and will not through this means. The illegal occupier India instead constitutionally merged the whole division into the Indian Union. India herself took the case to the UN and now is not honouring the UN resolution. A strong Pakistan is the prerequisite for having Maqbooza Kashmir become a part of Pakistan.

Aside from this, Pakistan has no shortage of enemies with the war in Afghanistan adding fuel to the fire. Even through minor differences, the current provinces making up Pakistan are threatening to secede from the state. East Pakistan presently known as Bangladesh is six times smaller in size yet has 13 provinces. Pakistan should take similar steps by creating at least 108 divisions or provinces. Even if these divisions are based on ethnicity there is still no harm in this as they will become too small to break away from the state. This will have many benefits including having smaller areas which will be easier to govern and a more focused approach to local problems.

A commissioner can be made in charge of the division which will actually reduce the cost and promote some sort of unity. It is well known that half the country has already been lost and we do not want to disjoint the country again. If a few people are not in agreement with this, we must ignore them as either they are na├»ve or friends of the enemies of Pakistan. This action must take place soon before it is too late and the state is dismembered.

THE MUSLIMS CANNOT CELEBRATE COMPULSORY HOLIDAY! EID-UL-AZHA FESTIVAL BANNED IN RAJASTHAN, INDIA: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

THE MUSLIMS CANNOT CELEBRATE COMPULSORY HOLIDAY! EID-UL-AZHA FESTIVAL BANNED IN RAJASTHAN, INDIA: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, 
THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE




ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

In a major development today, the High Court of India ordered beef ban and Rajasthan government decided that there will be no holiday on the eve of Eidul Azha. For a state which claims to be secular, why are Muslims being targeted in India, and if India is really secular, than why is Hinduism the driving influence behind this recent development? Similarly, on the eve of Jain festival, Bombay Municipal Corporation banned slaughtering of animals. This brings serious questions to the fore as to why anti-Islamic rulings are being passed through Hindu influence, all in the name of secularism.

What is the next step that the high court will take to hinder religious freedoms? Will the sacrifice (Qurbani of animals), one of the important Sunnahs or ways of our beloved Prophet Abraham (as) be banned as well? Shall we remain mute spectators?

The Sikh nation is also worried about the decision. The Sikh scholars maintain that Tenth Master Guru Gobind Singh Sahib (Tenth Guru of Sikhs) was fond of hunting and used to enjoy roast meat. The Sikh Homeland Punjab Khalistan belongs to Sikhs and they do not want to India put a ban on use of meat in their state too. In the words of Alama Iqbal: "Mulla ko jo hai hind mai sajda ki izazat, Nadan samjta hai Islam hai azad."

ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

India along with its princely states was divided under Indian subcontinent partition plan based on two nation theory. There was no mention that Pakistan will be further divided and the countries will be created on the basis of regionalism or languages. We the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir want to see Pakistan as a strong nation for the simple reason that neither India nor the UN will implement the UN Resolution until Pakistan is a powerful state.

Pakistan’s federal government should have more control over the directions of the affairs of the state including its future development. Just to cite an example, because of the weak federal government, the Pakistani government is unable to complete the Kala Bagh Dam even though the population is living without basic necessities.

There is no need to create a state within a state. This is the time to streamline the system. Since the whole division of Kashmir is a legally a part of Pakistan as it is a Muslim majority and because the people have already given their verdict on 19 July 1947 to be a part of Pakistan. Pakistan must politically secure areas such as Azad Kashmir by giving it provincial status like it did to Gilgit Baltistan.

More than 200, 000 people have been murdered by the Indian forces in Maqbooza Kashmir. As such, we the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir do not want to become peripheral states like Sikkim, Nepal, Bhutan, and Maldives. We are a natural part of Pakistan, and we will accede as a seventh province to them alone.

ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM! TO ALL DEAR BROTHERS, AND SISTERS:

Kashmir is a disputed territory in the eyes of outsiders.  We have a legitimate status, and we are rightfully a part of Pakistan. It is the need of the hour that Ghazi Kashmir (formerly known as Azad Kashmir) must be given provincial status. As and when Maqbooza Kashmir is liberated, it must also be added as the seventh province. The fact remains that we cannot create countries on the basis of regionalism. We must act now and start streamlining things before it is too late. Pakistan fought three wars and is still ready to go to war a fourth time for Kashmir.  To still claim that Kashmir is disputed territory is quite naive. It must be noted here that India has codified all states of Jammu and Kashmir in its constitution as an integral part. Pakistan must follow suit and liberate it at all costs. Regards,

India rejects Pak call for Kashmir plebiscite

"Jammu and Kashmir is an integrated part and parcel of India since independence. Democratically elections are held in the state.

India Thursday rejected Pakistan's call for plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir, asserting that the state is an integral part of the country and its citizens have chosen a democratically-elected government. "Pakistan must know that this platform is the Inter-Parliamentary Union platform and a forum where the 2030 development agenda is discussed," Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan told PTI here yesterday. Her remarks came a day after Pakistan National Assembly's Acting Speaker Murtaza Javed Abbasi in his speech to the Fourth World Conference of Speakers said that "it is time" to enable the people of Jammu and Kashmir to exercise their right to self-determination. Mahajan strongly rejected Pakistan's move to raise the issue of Kashmir on a platform focused on the global development agenda, saying the remarks are "totally irrelevant" and Islamabad must concentrate on development. "Jammu and Kashmir is an integrated part and parcel of India since independence. Democratically elections are held in the state," she said. "Pakistan should keep in mind that elections take place in Jammu and Kashmir and its people participate in a democratic process to elect their state government. There is an elected government there. What can be more democratic than this," she said, rejecting Pakistan's call for a plebiscite. "Why Pakistan is raising the issue in each platform. This is not the platform for it, this is not an issue now. The agenda here is the 2030 sustainable development goals. There is no relevancy at all (for raising Kashmir) here," she said. She said Pakistan is trying to make an issue out of a non-issue by bringing up Kashmir at every platform of the UN.  "They are ignoring the realities on the ground. This (Kashmir) is not an issue for the UN...They are making a non-issue an issue but they will not get success," she said. Mahajan said elections have been held in the state for the past many years. She emphasized that the state had witnessed the highest voter turnout in over two decades in the assembly elections last year, with an estimated 66 per cent electorate voting in 20 constituencies. She also pointed out that the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association conference in Islamabad was cancelled because Pakistan had not invited the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Speaker, which she said "is against the rules" of the body. "They are not focused on development. They are not thinking about their citizens and how development should take place in Pakistan. But instead every now and then they try to raise only one issue. They don't have the right thinking," Mahajan said. If you disagree with India’s stand please click the like button.

WHY INDIA IS UNFIT TO GET UN VETO POWER BY MOHAMMAD ZAINAL ABEDIN:

WHY INDIA IS UNFIT TO GET UN VETO POWER BY MOHAMMAD ZAINAL ABEDIN: 


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

The South Asian nations surrounding India had a sigh of relief when United States of America, Russian Federation and China, the three permanent members of UN Security Council (UNSC), technically deterred India’s dream to get UNSC membership, as they declined a proposal to reform UN Security Council what could ultimately pave the way for India to enter such prestigious and powerful body having veto power. India’s neighbors apprehend if India gets veto power it will use it not only to squeeze them, but also to occupy them to implement its dream of so-called ‘Akhand Bharat’ initially merging those countries to India what slipped away from it in 1947. After its recent setback Indian policymakers dismayingly recalled American President Mr. Barak Obama who in 2010 asserted that India deserves a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council. But the analysts believe Obama honoring diplomatic courtesy and strategic policy intentionally overlooked or avoided the irritable realities and traumas that India suffers from since its inception.


The ground reality says India practically lacks in all the counts get UNSC permanent membership. India will have to go a long way before it gets such position. None of the India’s neighboring countries will sincerely welcome Indian admission in UNSC, as India poses, as if, she is their guardian.  India must remove such apprehension from psyche of its neighbors by shunning its so-called dream of Akhand Bharat. Such dream prompts Indian policymakers to wage a policy of disturbing, squeezing¸ controlling and even, if possible, occupying them. With that end in view India creates stooges and agents, even secessionists, in her neighboring countries to create political and religious unrest to keep them economically shattered and backward, socially chaotic and restive, psychologically weak and insecure, and above all, nationally shaky and  divided. None of its neighbors are harmonious with India, whose support is very crucial for it in getting the support of all the veto-powered nations of UN. Though India is not fit to get veto power, still for a long time India desperately bids to get it simply highlighting one ground that out every six of the global people one is an Indian. But the knowledgeable sources believe if those regions that were immorally and illegally merged to Indian territory (through occupation or conspiratorial integration), are segregated from India, not only its geographical size, but also its demographic volume will shrink to a great extent. On the other hand simply huge population cannot be a factor in attaining the Security Council membership.



Indians  to brand  as so-called super power and hence to enter UNSC also distantly point to their extravagant military muscle as another factor, but such military might is, in fact, a burden for India, as it eats up vitals of India earns negative image wherever its personnel were deployed inside (disturbed areas) or outside India (in Bangladesh or Sri Lanka). India is the lone country in the world whose army is engaged in a never-ending war against its own people since its inception in 1947. India nurses such mega-army keeping its millions of marginal people in distressed who live in urban slums or in thatched huts in remote areas who are constantly chased by starvation, malnutrition, disease, illiteracy, and social or caste hatred and persecution. The most serious factor that makes India unfit to get UNSC permanent membership is that India lags far behind in all sectors from the current veto-powered members. India is even poorer than those aspirants (Japan, Germany, Brazil, or Africa) for the same position in UNSC. India is widely infamous for its poor economy, illiteracy, communal riots and caste hatred, religious and social violence, poor human rights records, and above all, its expansionist policy of ‘Akhand Bharat’ abolishing the existence of its  neighboring countries. 



Uncovering India’s poor and lowly position, a BBC report says, “Seventy-five percent of India's population lives in rural poverty, which results in a stagnated economy ----. A typical farmer feeds and clothes a family of four on $2 per day. ---poverty drives many farmers to suicide. Typical villages lack basic services, communications and infrastructure, resulting in a stagnated rural economy -----.”
Mumbai, the so-called dazzling city, is home to 22 million people, and over 70% of them live in slums. In recent times though some of the slum people were removed, but the position remains unchanged. People living in the slums have limited access to electricity, clean water, food, and educational opportunities. The slums are also home to over seven million children under the age of 14 who are growing up in abject poverty. Young as five and six years old are forced to work for survival. Slum children work as rag pickers, sewerage cleaners and other menial jobs all around Mumbai, earning a few cents a month for their families. Majority people of India are so poor that they are deprived of so many modern facilities. Dean Spears, an economist and visiting researcher at the Delhi School of Economics, writes, in India “Open defecation is everybody's problem. It is the quintessential 'public bad' with negative spillover effects even on households that do not practice it.”
A new World Health Organization (WHO) report says more than half a billion people in India still “continue to defecate in gutters, behind bushes or in open water bodies, with no dignity or privacy”. They are among the 48% of Indians who do not have access to proper sanitation.


 India is estimated to have one third of the world’s poor. India’s Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) need to undergo significant changes to address the current malnutrition crisis in India, according to a World Bank report. The prevalence of underweight children in India is among the highest in the world, and is nearly double that of Sub-Saharan Africa, the report says. Globally, an estimated one in four children under age 5 suffer from stunting, a form of malnutrition in which children are shorter than normal growth for their age. In India, almost 62 million children (48 percent) across all income groups are stunted. Stunting, or chronic malnutrition, is accompanied by a host of problems—weak immune systems, risk of sickness and disease, arrested cognitive and physical development, and a greater risk of dying before age 5. India has 287 million illiterate adults, the largest population globally and 37% of the world total, says a report by U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, also known as UNESCO.  In India there prevail huge disparities between the rich and the poor in all sectors from education to healthcare.
According to government statistics on an average 44,000 women still die every year at the time of delivery. Health Minister J P Nadda on March 17, 2015 informed the Rajya Sabha in a written reply that as per Sample Registration System (SRS) 2013, the Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) in the country is 40 per 1000 live births which translates into death of an estimated 10.68 lakh children up to the age of one year annually (http://www.outlookindia.com/news/article/Maternal-Mortality-Ratio-on-Decline-Since-2007-Govt/886273The problem of gender-based violence is getting worse in India. National Crime Record Bureau statistics show crimes against women increased by 7.1 percent nationwide since 2010. There has been a rise in the number of incidents of rape recorded too. 24,206 incidents of rape were recorded in 2011, a rise of 9 percent from the previous year. More than half of the victims are between 18 and 30 years of age. 



Figures indicate that 10.6 percent of total victims of rape were girls under 14 years of age, while 19 percent were teens between the ages of 14 and 18.  Under the IPC (Indian Penal Code) crimes against women include rape, kidnapping and abduction, homicide for dowry, torture, molestation, sexual harassment, and the importation of girls. A total of 2,28,650 incidents of crimes against women were reported in India during 2011. 
India claims itself as the largest democracy where in reality there is no democratic practice. Its democracy is confined to holding election. There is no democracy in those regions whose people strongly believe that they don’t belong to India, where people are socially discriminated and persecuted, economically deprived and exploited. India also behaves with them like an occupation power. An Indian human rights activist Henri Tiphagne acknowledged “We have all these great human rights institutions, but still nobody in India gets justice when the state murders one of their family members,”  Same position, in the truest sense of the term, prevails all over India, particularly in Kashmir, Northeastern region or Maoist-infested areas that cover about 11 provinces.


The laws that Indian parliament passed so far are utterly contrary to democratic values and norms. Some of the infamous draconian black laws are: Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA),  Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA), Unlawful Activities (prevention) Amendment Ordinance, Indian Telegraph Act, Criminal Procedure Code, Newspapers Incitements to Offence Act Official Secrets Act, National Security Act, Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act  (TADA), Disruptive Areas Act, Public Safety Act, etc.Most of these laws are imposed to crush the people of those so-called ‘disturbed areas’ where encaged and deprived people being annoyed became desperate for liberation. Availing these laws the armed forces can arrest, even shoot to death anyone, on suspicion or take him into custody without a warrant.


They can enter and search any premise in order to arrest so-called ‘wanted’ person, or to recover arms, ammunition or explosive substances. They can stop and search any vehicle or vessel that is suspected to be carrying wanted persons or weapons. Availing such excuses, in many cases, Indian soldiers simply enter the house with the intention of raping the women. Incidents of rape committed by the Indian army are so random and intolerable that the women community in were Manipur enraged, chagrined and agitated. Their anger went to its zenith when on July 11, 2004 a 32-year Manipuir women, Thanglam Manorama, was lifted from her house by the Assam Rifles personnel, raped and repeatedly shot at her vagina to death. This cruel behavior of the Indian army made the Manipur so disturbed and perturbed that on July 15, 2004 they stripped themselves and demonstrated in front of the Assam Rifles Headquarters holding a banner that says, “Indian Army rape us” and “Indian Army takes our flesh.” 

Army officers have legal immunity for their actions. There can be no prosecution, suit or any other legal proceeding against anyone acting under most of these laws.  As a result, custodial death, death in planted encounters, death without trial, arrest or detention on suspicion, demolition of residential houses or prayer houses or shops, rape and molestation and so on occur daily in India what is branded as the largest democracy in the world. Democracy in India is seen only during elections, but it is absent from Indian social life, as India is controlled and dictated by Indian Army and intelligence agencies, whose personnel are above law. Under such situation Human rights in India is alarmingly in the lowest position among the existing permanent members of the UNSC and the aspirants that seek the same status what India hankers.


India is a prophet of unrest and war in South Asian region. It is an aggressive country having expansionist zeal. It deceptively occupied Sikkim; forcibly swallowed Goa, Daman and, Diu; and illegally captured Princely State of Junagadh, Hyderabad, Kashmir, Manipur, Tripura etc. Besides it manipulated the British colonial power to handover without people’s consents such lands and regions like Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, which never were parts of India before their treacherous annexation to the British India in 1826.


Now India to maintain its controversial occupation on Kashmir and of Northeastern seven sisters comprising Manipur, Tripura and Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, wages a never-ending war since its inception in 1947 where its troops, under the cover of democratic fashion, lunches despotic and ruthless rule. Indian military and intelligence agencies control those areas where human rights are nakedly violated.


India deployed about 400,000 army personnel in seven sisters who commit atrocities on the local people availing black laws that I mentioned afore, and massively violate human rights. No pen is enough to detail and ventilate the accurate and exact agonies, sorrows and sufferings, deprivations and exploitations of the ill-fated people of seven sisters that led them to the path of armed resistance to liberate their region.


To comprehend the gravity of atrocities in seven sisters I prefer to refer to an iron lady Irom Chanu Sharmila, a Manipuri civil rights and political activist and poet who is on hunger strike since November 4, 2000 demanding annulment of the infamous AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act), a weapon responsible for so many gruesome killings in northeast and elsewhere in India.


On November 2, 2000, the Manipuri insurgents attacked an Assam Rifles convoy near Malom town of Manipur. In retaliation, the troops shot at civilians at a nearby bus-stop that left 10 civilians dead, including a 62-year old woman and an 18-year old Sinam Chandramani, who had been awarded the bravery award by the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. Besides, as many as 42 people were dragged out from their houses and severely beaten up by the Assam Rifle personnel.


The brutal combing operation enraged and hurt the heart of Irom Sharmila so much that prompted her to go on fast-to-death (hunger strike) demanding the repeal of the AFSPA. About 15 years passed by, but Sharmila bending to India neither ended her hunger strike till date nor her hunger strike could move so-called the largest democracy India to withdraw its black law.The most serious allegation that one may bring to the forefront is that India is such a country that dishonors the UNSC, better to say United Nations. How a country that denies UN Security Council resolution adopted on April 21, 1948 that India must hold referendum in Kashmir under UN supervision to decide whether the people of Kashmir want to merge to India or Pakistan. India raised the Kashmir issue before the UN and politely welcomed the decision of holding plebiscite under UN and committed to accept results, if it would go against its occupation. Late Nehru who repeatedly declared to hold plebiscite didn’t honor it in his life time who died on May 27, 1964. How such a country that dishonors the UN Security Council resolution could desire to get permanent seat in it?


To keep Kashmir under its occupation India maintains more than 700,000 troops there who are committing all kinds of atrocities against the Kashmiri people. Reliable Kashmiri sources confirmed that Kashmiris are virtually denied of all types of human rights. Indian armed forces so far murdered more than 203,030 Kashmiris, detained 216,222 people, 110,355 kashmris were made disappeared, 116,010 homes have been demolished, leaving 123,110 widows and 207,664 orphans. In Kashmir, there are thousands of unmarked graves, let alone the known ones, in secret cemeteries created by the army and the police to hide their crimes. Indian army, even police, are allowed to enjoy full freedom and permanent immunity in committing atrocities  that include, among others, rape, murder, arson, kidnap, demolition (dwelling houses, businesses,  religious sites and what not. The killers remain uncharged and unpunished.


South Asian analysts expressing their dismay opine how such a poor country that suffers from acute problems and backwardness in all sectors along with lowest human rights records should desire the most responsible and prestigious position of the world body. They apprehend that India’s membership in UNSC will simply turn South Asia to a permanent battle ground whenever India opts to implement its aggressive dream of Akhand Bharat. All these realities and records, including communal and caste violence, crime against the women and religious minorities, above all, psyche of the South Asian people, are to be profoundly taken into consideration before awarding UNSC membership to such a poor and irresponsible, but occupation-hanker aggressive, at the same time repressive country, named India.*

THE WHOLE STATE OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR IS NATURALLY, MORALLY, LEGALLY, CULTURALLY, CONSTITUTIONALLY, AND GEOGRAPHICALLY A PART OF PAKISTAN: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE

THE WHOLE STATE OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR IS NATURALLY, MORALLY, LEGALLY, CULTURALLY, CONSTITUTIONALLY, AND GEOGRAPHICALLY A PART OF PAKISTAN: HABIB YOUSAFZAI,
 THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE


ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM!

The primary objective of the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir and the nation of Pakistan is to get liberation from Indian occupation. However, due to the stubbornness of India, this liberation is being delayed. This does not mean that because of this delay we start dismantling our fort Pakistan. The whole state of Jammu and Kashmir is naturally, morally, legally, culturally, constitutionally, and geographically a part of Pakistan and no one can separate them. Our efforts will be continuous until each and every inch of it is liberated and a part of Pakistan.
