As apprehended, within few minutes Article 370 is repealed by ordinance signed by the president and J&K is divided in to two union territories through bills presented in the parliament in the name of integrating it with India by Modi-2. These steps fundamentally violate the Instrument of Accession of 1947 and is a gross betrayal of the trust of the Kashmiri people. In order to impose these decisions, apart from the already heavy deployment of military and para-military forces, more forces are air lifted to Kashmir. These steps may integrate these regions, as claimed by RSS parivar, geographically for the time being, but will divide the people deeply. These steps by the Modi-2 are acts of treason which will only disintegrate the country. These steps, it is clear, are intended for pursuing a policy of demographic aggression in the valley and enlarging the conflict at the Line of Control to a Gaza like situation, which will gladden only Modi’s friends, the Zionists of Israel and their US promoters.
We call upon all party committees to join hands with all ike minded forces and people and to oppose these acts of treason by the Modi-2.
