SRINAGAR: Indian troops in their continued acts of state terrorism martyred 13 Kashmiris during the last month of March and their brutal conduct with people in quarantine also continued.
According to Kashmir Media Service, during the period, at least seven people were injured in the use of brute force on peaceful protesters by Indian police and troops.
Indian police and paramilitary personnel arrested eight hundred and six people including Hurriyat activists and youth during search operations in different areas of the occupied territory.
Meanwhile, the Indian authorities, in a major development, took a big step last night towards changing the demography of the territory by notifying new domicile rules.
A notification in this regard said that a person who has resided in Jammu and Kashmir for a period of 15 years or has studied for a period of seven years shall be deemed to have the domicile of the territory.
The domicile would also be given to the children of Indian government officials who have served in the territory for ten years. The new law will provide Indians legal justification to settle in the disputed territory.
Hurriyat leaders and organizations strongly condemned the notification.
The leaders maintained that India is hell-bent upon snatching everything from the people of Jammu and Kashmir including their identity, land and natural resources.
They termed the Indian move as a violation of the UN Security Council resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir.
The leaders urged the United Nations, European Union and OIC to intervene and save people of Kashmir from BJP-RSS led Hindutva terrorism.
