Occupied Kashmir Under Unprecedented Censorship, Says LFK’s Fact Sheet
Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K) is under unprecedented censorship and facing Israeli Style Settler colonialism since India unilaterally and illegally revoked its Special Status under Article 370 and 35-A, said a fact sheet report issued by Legal Forum for Kashmir (LFK). It stated that the massive administrative and legislative changes in IIOJK have removed the restriction that prevented a non-Kashmir to buy any property for residential or commercial use. The annulment of erstwhile state laws also allows the Indian armed forces to take over land wherever they desire and gives sweeping powers to the government to take over any land and property for “industrial” use. UN-recognized disputed region is witnessing a new level of state persecution under the pretext of an anti-encroachment drive of alleged ‘State land’ aiming to disempower Kashmiris and uproot them from their homes.
