In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Ittehad-e-Islami has said that Gujjar and Bakarwal communities are being displaced from their land in several areas of Jammu region to pave the way for settlement of Hindu outsiders from India on the grabbed land.

Ittehad-e-Islami Kishtwar district President Maulana Nisar Ahmad presiding over a meeting in Kishtwar said that local administration was hand in glove with the fascist BJP government in exodus of poor Muslim Gujjar and Bakarwal families and downtrodden Pandit people. 

The Ittehad-e-Islami leader said that non-state officers and employees from India are being brought to IIOJK and are imposed on local population endangering the communal harmony, brotherhood and unity. 

He said that the Modi government had already robbed Kashmiri youth of job and employment opportunities by abrogating Articles 370 and 35-A and now is engaged in depriving them of their land and residence.

IIOJK HC quashes PSA detention

The High Court of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir has directed the authorities to release a Kashmiri youth, Gulzar Ahmad Ganai detained under black law Public Safety Act, forthwith.

A bench of Justice Ali Mohammad said that the detainee — Gulzar Ahmad Ganai — was denied valuable right of effective representation against the order of detention and quashed his detention which was passed by the deputy commissioner of the South Kashmir district on August 8 last year.
