Srinagar, February 09, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Jammu and Kashmir, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai, has said that India is adopting different tactics to harm the disputed nature of Jammu and Kashmir under the garb of development and it is a well-thought-out plan to trifurcate the territory on political, cultural and religious lines.
Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai in a statement issued in Srinagar reacting to granting Ladakh separate administrative and revenue division said New Delhi and anti-Kashmir think tank are hell-bent to alter the existing geo-political set-up and further divide Jammu and Kashmir.
He termed the move a desperate attempt of fragmentation and division with the aim to disintegrate whole territory into smaller regions to create hostility, wedge and non-cooperation with each other on final political settlement. He said India’s ill intentions and designs are visible as the very same forces oppose tooth and nail when it comes to Pir Panchal and Chenab valleys of Jammu region.
Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai said, “It’s a ploy to fiddle with the Muslim majority character of Jammu and Kashmir and its internationally recognized basic character.” He said, these forces are working hard to sabotage the future referendum process in Kashmir and hatching conspiracies to achieve desired results. He said from Srinagar to New Delhi, efforts are being made to shift focus from core Kashmir issue by portraying it away from its historical and ethical background.
Meanwhile, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai also expressed grief over the loss of lives in the snow avalanche at the Jawahar tunnel and said such unnatural route claimed thousands of lives and people often left to fend for themselves facing a crisis and shortage of supplies.
