JKLF to hold sit-in, rally on Friday

The pro-Independence Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) on Monday threatened to hold protest marches on January 16 in Srinagar against granting of rights to West Pakistan (WP) refugees in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Any conspiracy to change demography of J&K and turn Muslim into a minority is unacceptable," said JKLF chief Yasin Malik.

"Granting West Pakistan refugee's permanent citizenship is a conspiracy to destroy the existing social fabric of J&K. People will never remain silent spectators over these conspiracies hatched at the behest of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and its allies," alleged Malik.

"In 1982, the state assembly passed the resettlement act to benefit those who had migrated to other Kashmir in 1947 but Indian state out rightly rejected the legislation. Today even the properties of those migrants are being sold at low prices," he added.

Malik warned that if such moves are not stopped immediately people will be forced into a comprehensive protest, consequences of which will rest on the heads of the rulers.

"JKLF will organise a protest sit-in and rally against this on January 16 where people will register their peaceful protest against this the move," he said.
