Article 35A aimed at to change Muslim demography of State: Aga Hasan

Budgam, Aug 25 : Senior separatist leader and president Anjuman Shari Shian Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi Friday while reacting over the attempts to abrogate Article 35A said it is directly aimed at changing the demographic character of the state that will have a direct bearing on our Right to self-determination guaranteed by the Indian state at the UN and ratified by the world body.

    While addressing a large gathering at Imam Bara Budgam, Aga Hasan said since coming to power the current dispensation in New Delhi is constantly engaged in  fulfilling its long term agenda of total integration  of J&K with the Indian Union through a demographic change and  is using the judicial route for this purpose. He said people of Kashmir will never allow it to happen and will fight out this grave assault as they have been bravely and peacefully fighting for their fundamental right since the past seventy years. He said that Government of India considers Jammu Kashmir as its colony and attempts everything in its control to suppress the resistance of the people of Jammu Kashmir.

   Expressed deep grief and anger at the killing of young student Shahid Bashir Wani who was picked up by the Indian army and killed in cold blood he asked how long will we carry the dead bodies of our youth killed with impunity by our oppressors ,while the world looks the other the way and does not raise its voice against such brutality.

   Aga Hasan also castigated government for depriving the people at Rakh-e-Arth of all facilities. “These people were rehabilitated there but are being discriminated badly,” he said.
