State subject laws related to Kashmiris’ struggle: Malik

Feb 4th, 2015 | Category: Articles

In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that Jammu Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory which is still waiting for a permanent solution.

Muhammad Yasin Malik in a statement issued in Srinagar maintained that the people of Kashmir were rendering sacrifices for their right to self-determination and hence state subject law and fighting for its protection was directly related to their resistance struggle.

Malik while reacting to Muzaffar Beig’s recent statement supporting settlement of non-Kashmiris in the territory said that being a lawyer Beig should have been aware of all these facts.

The State Subject Act was enacted by erstwhile Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir in 1927 and main reason for it was that Kashmir being a hill state full of natural resources needed to be safeguarded from the flow of population, he added.

“Beig should know that people of Jammu and Kashmir are struggling for their right to self-determination and this dispute is internationally recognized. In this situation how can people of Jammu and Kashmir be such fools that they will allow lakhs of non-Kashmiris to be granted permanent citizenship resulting in the change of the whole equilibrium of the population” he questioned.

Yasin Malik said the state subject law was enacted neither by India, nor by any Kashmiri. “It was enacted in 1927 by erstwhile Maharaja of J&K who visibly cared for the ecology of the state more than these new era pro-India politicians. When resistance camp talks about safeguarding state subject laws we have nothing to do with Indian constitution. It is NC, PDP and other pro-India parties and their members like Muzaffar Beig who use rhetoric of safeguarding Article 370 to hoodwink people”, he said.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Freedom League Chief Organizer, Muhammad Altaf Khan in a statement issued in Srinagar said that pro-India leaders were dancing to the tunes of India for personan gains.
