Media Review Network interprets the latest developments in Kashmir as a grave
threat to democracy and its principles which have been jealously guarded by all
peace loving and justice-seeking people of the world.
latest move by the Hindu Nationalist government of Narendra Modi, to scrap
Article 370 of the Constitution, has shaken the very foundations of the
fundamentals of democracy. Article 370 ensured a certain degree of
autonomy for the Kashmiris. This has now been snatched away by the Indian
Parliament like thieves operation under cover of darkness.
addition to the 800 000 troops stationed in the territory, thousands more have
been sent into the region to quell any form of resistance from the Kashmiris.
All forms of communication including the internet and telephone lines,
have been severed.
rights activists have strongly condemned India’s unilateral action, stating
that these are the first steps in a broader plan to erode Kashmir’s core rights
and flood the area with non- Kashmiris, thereby altering the demographics and
eventually destroying its character, ala Zionist-Israel. Like Palestine,
Kashmir is now officially occupied territory.
Media Review Network urgently calls on all international and regional bodies
including the UN, AU, EU, BRICS as well as our Department of International
Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) to compel India to end this blatant, open and
naked aggression against the Kashmiris.
