Hurriyet leaders call domicile issue matter of life and death

ISLAMABAD, Jan 3 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 03rd Jan, 2017 ) : Protests against issuance of domicile certificates to Hindu refugees will continue, the united resistance leadership vowed while calling it a matter of life and death for the people of Kashmir.

According to Kashmir Media Service, several pro-freedom leaders at a rally and sit-in held at Aabi Guzar in Srinagar under the banner of joint resistance leadership called the issuance of domicile certificates to non locals and recent court order of Indian Supreme Court on Securitization and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act (SARFAESI) a conspiracy to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir.

"Issuing domicile certificates, court orders regarding the sovereignty of Jammu and Kashmir and allowing Indian banks to confiscate and hold properties in Jammu and Kashmir are issues of life and death for our national life," said a statement issued by the joint resistance leadership.

"The people of Kashmir cannot stay silent on the ploy to change the demography of Jammu and Kashmir and turn its Muslim majority status into a minority," the statement added. During the protest, the participants chanted pro-freedom slogans and also raised issues related to the ill-treatment of Kashmiri inmates in jails, police stations and interrogation centres.

The protesters attempted to march towards the Lal Chowk but the procession was stopped by Indian police near Press Enclave, where they staged a sit-in.
