Modi moves to attract non-Kashmiris with land in IoK
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed to build colonies on the eastern corner side of the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) in what is being reportedly called an attempt to suppress the Muslim residents, reported.
By doing away with the Article 35-A, Modi would provide non-Kashmiri people the right to purchase land in the IoK — a decision that the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has strongly voiced its opinion against.
In this regard, there was a valley-wide strike on Saturday at the Hurriyat Conference's appeal against the alleged attempt to turn the Muslim majority into a minority.
However, the Indian Supreme Court is expected to announce its final decision pertaining to the Article 35-A tomorrow (Monday).
