President Masood said that under the guise of Covid-19, Indian troops have intensified their repression against the people of Kashmir with the aim of suppressing their spirit of freedom. In addition to killing the Kashmiris, he added that India had taken steps to turn the Muslim majority into a minority in the occupied region, and the recent change in domicile laws granting settlement rights to Hindus is part of the same heinous attempt.
“Impaled, the Kashmiris will not wage a full war against 900,000 soldiers, but they have blocked them. Indian troops are on foreign and foreign land, but they are wrong in winning by killing. “
The AJK president said that in the past month alone, 32 young IJJ & K Kashmiris have been martyred and 18 occupying forces have been killed. The disputed territory is turbulent, and there is no “calm” that India projects.
He added that the international community had imposed a lockdown to prevent the victims of Covid-19, but the Indian government had locked down Kashmir to inflict casualties. “The occupied Indian troops practically besieged 8 million Kashmiris, denying them access to food, education, medicine, employment and freedom of expression.”
