Former Union Minister Prof. Saifuddin Soz has said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will defeat the Central government’s designs of settling outsiders in J&K.

“If India’s national Opposition does not intervene in Jammu and Kashmir, the people will be forced to raise their voice for intervention by the international community to correct the social and political malaise created by the Central govt,” he added, in a press statement issued on Wednesday.

“The Union Govt. does not understand that while the people of J&K state had accepted Maharaja Hari Singh’s Deed of Accession to India through which they acceded to India, but did not merge with India like other states,” he said.

“The Central Govt. abrogated J&K domicile laws abruptly and unilaterally. If the Central govt. does not withdraw the J&K adaptation of Registration of Central laws, order 2020, which allows outsiders to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir State, there will be a strong reaction to this action of the Central Govt. in J&K State,” Soz said.


“The Union Govt.’s said order is atrocious and provocative and if the said law is not withdrawn forthwith, the people of J&K State will raise their strong voice which will be heard throughout the world. That situation will further internationalize the Kashmir issue,” he added.

“There is resentment against the Union Govt. in Jammu also where people feel the threat of outsiders settling in Jammu and Kashmir and they also feel that Kashmir is immune to these threats,” Soz said.

“India’s national Opposition would be well advised to intervene and correct the malaise and terrific mess created by the Central Govt. The national Opposition would also be well advised to open negotiations with Kashmir Peoples’ Alliance leadership to appreciate the latest political scenario in J&K State,” he added.
