Srinagar, December 28, 2020 (PPI-OT): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Front, a constituent of the All-Party Hurriyat Conference, has said that the Modi regime wants to forcibly occupy Kashmiris’ lands and settle non-Kashmiris there.

He said that Kashmir was a disputed territory whose political future was yet to be decided. He said that India was violating international laws and regulations in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The spokesman said that India was engaged in genocide of Kashmiris and its forces were martyring Kashmiri youth in fake encounters while resistance leaders and activists were imprisoned.
