Statement by Zafar Khan, the head JKLF’s Diplomatic Bureau On the Illegal Dismemberment of Jammu Kashmir by the Indian government:

Statement by Zafar Khan, the head of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front’s Diplomatic Bureau

 On the Illegal Dismemberment of Jammu Kashmir by the Indian government:
·       A reunified and sovereign state of Jammu Kashmir will be in the best interest of India, which in its composition as a society, is more disparate than Pakistan, than a broken and dismembered Jammu Kashmir:
·       There can be no compromise on our inherent, inalienable and internationally recognised unfettered, and sovereign right to self-determination.
London   8 August: In a statement issued in London from its international Secretariat, the Diplomatic Bureau of the JKLF strongly condemned Indian government’s illegal decision to dismember the state of Jammu Kashmir.
 The head of JKLF’s Diplomatic Bureau Prof Zafar Khan called the Modi government’s decision illegal as well as a monumental folly. And said that abrogation of article 370 means that Jammu Kashmir’s conditional constitutional relationship with the Indian union was at an end both in terms of India’s domestic and international law which, renders India’s presence in Jammu Kashmir as that of an occupying foreign power.
 The head of JKLF’s Diplomatic Bureau said that People of Jammu Kashmir have not only been betrayed by the right wing chauvinist RSS supported BJP government of India, but it has also snubbed the international community with utter disregard and disdain regarding India’s international commitments and obligations to the people, and  on their right of self-determination.
He said that through illegal annexation the Modi government wilfully sought to break up territorial unity of Jammu Kashmir and destroy its unique character and identity through absorption as union territory to rule directly from New Delhi’ and also to inflame sectarian and communalism to aid his party’s political objectives in India itself.
Zafar Khan said that 5 August 2019 for ever will be etched in the memory of people in Jammu Kashmir as a black day, and a catastrophe or a day of Nakba as Prime Minister Modi and his ultra-chauvinist henchmen deviously contrived to replicate a Palestine like situation, particularly in the valley of Kashmir to engineer a demographic change.
He said the world was watching this so called Modi’s RSS inspired final solution of the Kashmir issue, which in reality means that millions of men, women and children are now imprisoned in their own homes completely cut off from each other in their own country and from the rest of the civilised world, with guns of literally tens of thousands of India’s para military and military troops, pointed at their heads throughout the greater valley of Kashmir, in the Pir Panjal region, and in the regions of Doda, Kishtwar, Badarwah and parts of Jammu including Rajauri and Poonch. He condemned the total siege and lock down of Kashmir and demanded that the iron curtain which has descended on Jammu Kashmir, turning the entire region from Kargil to Rajauri into a gigantic prison, must be lifted.
He said Indian government should not harbour any misconception of disunity among the citizens of the state as there is an in build internal unity and solidarity of long standing among the Dogras, in Jammu and Muslims in the valley and other parts of the state on the sanctity of 35 A which is a direct attack on the identity and wellbeing of inhabitants from all ethnic and social and religious backgrounds.
 Zafar Khan pointed out that absorption of Jammu Kashmir into the Indian union in such an underhand and deceitful manner will not be acceptable and will prove to be fatally detrimental to the Indian union itself, as is being recognised by a very large number of people across all sections of the Indian society.   The head of the JKLF’s Diplomatic Bureau strongly emphasised that a reunified and sovereign state of Jammu Kashmir will be in the best interest of India, which in its composition as a society, is more disparate than Pakistan, than a broken and dismembered Jammu Kashmir.
 Zafar Khan strongly condemned the politically motivated incarceration of JKLF Chairman Yasin Malik and many other Kashmiri leaders who are being kept in Delhi’s Tihar jail. He said Yasin Malik, Shabir Shah and many others are patriotic Kashmiris who want a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue and supportive of dialogue between India, Pakistan and the Kashmiri leadership. Keeping these leaders behind bars and others under house arrest is not only inhuman, vindictive and politically motivated but also colonialistic, and a loss to the achievement of a lasting resolution of the conflict. He called on the Modi government to release the Kashmiri leaders as they are a part of the solution not a part of the problem.
Zafar Khan strongly emphasised that the just and historic struggle for a dignified and peaceful resolution of the issue  will continue, as there can be no compromise made on our inherent, inalienable  and internationally recognised unfettered, and sovereign right to self-determination. END

Jammu Kashmir's illegal annexation by the BJP/RSS government of India

5 August 2019 will forever be etched in the memory of people in Jammu Kashmir as a black day.
 It will be remembered as a day when the so called largest democracy in the world, illegally annexed the entire Indian occupied part of Jammu Kashmir with a stroke of a pen, and took  away  the   heritage, the identity,  hard fought fundamental rights, and centuries old ethnic, cultural and religious harmony and tolerance amongst the sons and daughters of the soil.

5 August 2019 will be remembered as a black day because, on this day millions of  sons and daughters of this beautiful but unhappy  land, were imprisoned in their homes by 820,000 Indian military and paramilitary troops at the point of gun under orders from a communalist  and hegemonic BJP /RSS government in  Delhi.

5 August 2019 will be forever marked as a black by the people  of Jammu Kashmir because, on this day millions of the  citizens of Jammu Kashmir were not  treated as members of humanity. This day will also be marked as a black day because, on this day the BJP /RSS government under the erroneous rule of might is right, disregarded the international law and legality, and forcibly annexed a country, and its people whose  political status is yet to be determined by themselves  through the exercise of their, fundamental,  inherent and inalienable sovereign right to self-determination.

On 5 August 2019 therefore, the BJP /RSS government of India has thrown an open challenge to  the world community by completely disregarding its obligations under the United  Nations Charter, and the inherent and inalienable sovereign right of the people of Jammu Kashmir to self-determination  under the UN Charter and over some 18 UN Resolutions on the Kashmir issue/dispute -conflict.

Therefore, the  legitimate and just  struggle to regain the lost  sovereign right of free will, by people of Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh, will continue until victory.

Release Yasin Malik Campaign delegate led by General secretary JKLF UK zone Liaqat Lone met with Phillip Bennion MEP (Lib Dem west midlands region).

Nazam Bhatti & Masoom Ansari the founder members of jklf were also present in the meeting. The delegate raised their concerns on illegal arrest of yasin malik chairman jklf under draconian law PSA imposed by indian govt.

Yasin malik life is under threat due to serious health issues and lack of health facilities provided to him. He has no access to medicine which has caused deterioration of his health.
His family is not allowed to see him in Tihar jail Dehli. He has been pressurized to compromise on his peaceful political struggle which he has refused to do so. He has no contact to his family ever since he has been arrested since Feb 2019.
Indian Govt has banned JKLF political peaceful struggle in Indian occupied Kashmir. India, so called world biggest democracy is not allowing peaceful political movement in Kashmir. There is more than 700000 troops deployed in Kashmir valley who is using pallet guns on children, women raped cases, civilian killings, kidnaping of youth is daily mission of Indian forces in Kashmir.

The Govt of India has refused access to amnesty international, red cross and many other NGO’s in Kashmir. It has been mentioned in UN human rights report published in  8th July 2019 and 14th June 2018. The Modi Govt is propagating Hindu extremism and the lives of innocent people are in danger. The ceasefire line has been violated many time with heavy shelling on civilians living on both side of ceasefire line in Jammu Kashmir.

The delegate has also raised concerns on the exploitation of natural resources by diverting the river Neelum & Jhelum in Muzaffarabad AJK. Neelum Jhelum hydral project is serious threat to 675000 people living in that area. There has been no environmental consultation addressed which has caused the serious threat to local community due to shortage of water and created health concerns in local vicinity. The govt of Pakistan is making dams in AJK against the will of Kashmiris which is the violation of united nation rules. India & Pak cannot build dams on a disputed territory. We urge the international community to intervene and stop both occupants to exploit natural resources of Kashmir.

The honorable MEP assured the delegation to raise our concerns to EU Parliament as well as UN. Mr P Bennion also support the ideology of independent Kashmir and admired the road map of Amanullah khan in which he asked both countries to demilitarize Jammu Kashmir state and give right to the people of Kashmir to decide their future. The referendum which gives people unfettered  right of self-determination.

The delegation presented the report as well as letter to the honorable MEP for future actions and thanked him for his help & support to raise the voice for voiceless Kashmiris.
