APHC calls for shutdown in IIOJK during Modi visit


The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has called for a complete shutdown in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday (March 7) against the scheduled visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the territory.

Call for the strike has been announced by Advocate Abdul Rashid Minhas, the APHC spokesperson in a statement in Srinagar, and it aims to express Kashmiris’ rejection of all anti-Kashmir agendas of India’s Hindutva regime and demanded the resolution of the Kashmir dispute to foster peace in the region.

The shutdown, as per APHC spokesman, is intended to protest against India’s illegal occupation, the implementation of Hindutva agendas in Kashmir, and to reiterate the persistent demand for the settlement of the Kashmir dispute.

Additionally, the strike emphasizes opposition to ongoing atrocities, illegal detentions, the revocation of Kashmiris’ political rights including Article 370 and 35A, dismissals of Kashmiri government employees, and property seizures, he added.

The spokesperson stressed the significance of ensuring the strike’s success, urging active participation from the people of the occupied territory.

Furthermore, the APHC condemned Modi’s visit, asserting that it seeks to mislead the global community about the true situation in IIOJK, which has witnessed unprecedented brutality under BJP rule.

The APHC has called upon the international community to take prompt action to resolve the Kashmir dispute, cautioning the grave threat it poses to peace and stability in South Asia, and the exacerbation of the suffering of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, posters have emerged in Srinagar and other parts of the territory, reinforcing the call for a shutdown during Modi’s visit. The posters depict Modi as a perpetrator of violence against Muslims, orchestrating a genocidal campaign in IIOJK, with intentions to erase the Muslim identity of Jammu and Kashmir.
