Srinagar: The Narendra Modi-led Indian government continues to snatch the properties of innocent people of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to punish them for their affiliation with the ongoing freedom movement.
According to Kashmir Media Service, in its fresh move the Modi regime has seized the residential property of a civilian Mushtaq Ahmad in Chanapora area of Srinagar. The property was attached by India’s dreaded National Investigation Agency (NIA), today (Saturday).
The Indian authorities have already confiscated the headquarters of All Parties Hurriyat Conference in Srinagar and hundreds of houses and properties belonging to Hurriyat leaders and organizations including Syed Ali Gilani Shaheed, Shabbir Ahmed Shah, Aasiya Andrabi and Jamaat-e-Islami across occupied Kashmir. The occupation authorities have also demolished many residential houses, shops, shopping complexes and other properties in the occupied territory.
The attaching or confiscating Kashmiris’ properties every other day by India is a new normal in occupied Kashmir. The action is aimed at forcing the Kashmiris to give up their support to the ongoing freedom struggle. The action is a sheer political vendetta on part of Modi’s Hindutva regime. Indian troops are also regularly destroying the Kashmiris’ houses during violent military operations. Demolition of properties, illegal confiscations and forced evictions are part of India’s systematic campaign to cripple the Kashmiris economically.
Modi must remember that India’s brutal military occupation and colonial tactics have failed to subdue the Kashmiris’ resolve for freedom in the past and will meet the same fate in future as well. India should stop its state terrorism and fulfill its promise of giving the Kashmiris their right to self-determination.
