SRINAGAR: The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has expressed concerns regarding a deliberate effort by the Modi government to implement a settler-colonial agenda in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference leadership, as reported by Kashmir Media Service, argue that this agenda, driven by Hindutva ideologies championed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), aims at erasing the Muslim identity in the region.
In a joint statement, the leaders highlighted that India’s occupation of IIOJK traces back to October 27, 1947, when Indian troops arrived in Srinagar. Since then, they claim, India has treated Kashmir as a colony, with the current government allegedly intensifying efforts toward settler colonialism in the region.
