ISLAMABAD: Condemnations against issuance of Permanent Resident Certificates to non-Kashmiris at school level by PDP-BJP coalition continue to pour in from various quarters in the territory.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the Hurriyet Conference Jammu and Kashmir (HCJK) in a statement in Srinagar warned the puppet administration of dire consequences against issuing PRCs and caste certificates to children at schools.
The organization said that the move was aimed at changing the demography of Jammu and Kashmir.
Hurriyet leader Shabbir Ahmad Dar and others in a joint statement said, “It is not hidden from anyone that Mufti Muhammad Sayeed has surrendered before RSS fanatics and is leaving no stone unturned in satisfying his BJP masters and implementing the hidden agendas of fascist ideologies in Jammu and Kashmir.”
They said India and its anti-Kashmir politicians are hell bent upon settling the non-locals in the territory only to bring down Muslim majority status and to counter the resistance in every respect.
Meanwhile, the Jamaat-e-Islami of occupied Kashmir termed the PDP-BJP coalition’s initiative to assign schools the task of issuing PRCs to students as a dangerous ploy to bring about demographic change in this Muslim majority Kashmir.
The Jamaat in a statement issued in Srinagar said the policy was quite in contravention to the disputed nature of the territory.
“This seems to be an attempt to dilute the Muslims majority of the territory by granting PRCs to the 1947 migrants from Pakistan presently living in different areas of the Jammu province. The BJP seems to be implementing its long pending agenda.
There are lakhs of children studying in various schools of Jammu province whose parents have migrated to Jammu either in 1947 from different areas of Pakistan or have shifted from other areas of India after 1947,” the Jamaaat Spokesman Advocate Zahid Ali said in a statement.
Pro-India National Conference also lashed out at PDP-BJP alliance for issuing State Subject Certificates at schools saying that the move was aimed at diluting the State Subject Laws and to subsequently alter the Kashmir’s unique demographic character.
Senior party leaders Agha Syed Ruhullah and Raj Ali Mohammad Dar in a joint statement said National Conference would defeat all such sinister designs.
