JKNPP activists today staged a massive demonstration outside Pakistan High Commission, New Delhi in protest against the gross interference of Pakistan in the internal affairs of India and its overt and covert support to secessionists and terrorists in J&K. Led by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman and former Minister, hundreds of JKNPP leaders and activists including Young Panthers President, Mr. Yashpaul Kundal raised anti-Pak slogans and accusing Pakistan for converting J&K into a vortex of violence. They were carrying National Flags and raised slogans against illegal occupation of Indian Territory of J&K by Pakistan. They also demanded Pakistan to vacate all occupied territories of India including Gilgit-Baltistan, Chitral (which Pakistan has declared as its 6th province) in violation of UN Resolution dated 13.08.1948. The ardent protestors amidst the heated exchanges and scuffles with the cops in front of the Pak High Commission were arrested and detained in the Chanakyapuri Police Station.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh lambasted Pakistan for its pernicious designs in aiding and abetting militancy in J&K and elsewhere in the country in furtherance of its wicked designs of causing destabilization in the state. He castigated Pakistan for its highly malicious and mischievous actions and designs in sponsoring militancy particularly in J&K and pushing in indoctrinated traitors to vitiate peace and tranquility on our side of the borders. Admonishing Pakistan for its terror training camps, its Hawala deals, its drug trafficking, its moral and material support to secessionism besides its highly malicious propaganda in the print and electronic media, against India, Mr. Singh lamented that Pak’s notoriety had assumed alarming and monstrous proportions. He said that hoisting of Pak & ISIS flags had become a routine feature in the state with the proven support of Pakistan. He said that recent militant attacks in Samroli, Chenani and Basantgarh areas of Distt.Udhampur had created an alarm in Jammu region with the Pak sponsored terrorists having managed their entry into the once considered safe zones.
He condemned the unprecedented ceasefire violations by Pakistan which had threatened the very life and survival of the border residents besides causing huge loss to their livestock, standing crops, houses and agricultural fields. Castigating the hostile neighbour for its highly dubious deals, Mr. Singh cautioned Pakistan to break out from the mindset of duplicity, deceit and belligerence that it has embarked upon and to stop meddling in the Affairs of J&K. He further called for vacation of Pak aggression from the occupied territories of J&K which are very much a part of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that Union Parliament had also passed a resolution in 1994 for liberating POJK as this same fell within the domain of Indian Union. Ridiculing the BJP over its muscle flexing while in opposition, he questioned the Saffron Party as to where had its patriotic euphoria vanished despite Pak’s blatant interference in J&K affairs brazen support to the separatism in Kashmir. He said that JKNPP was constrained to lodge a protest as the BJP despite its jingoistic harangues and rhetorical overtures had abdicated its responsibility of questioning the belligerent nation over its misadventures and violent posturing.
Mr. Harsh Dev Singh while condemning Pakistan for inciting violence and trouble in J&K called upon the international community to take cognizance of the utter hostility and belligerence of the neighbouring country. He said that Pakistan had created dozens of terror groups in the name of ‘Jehad’ who were resorting to violence and propagating secession and separatism. He said that J&K is an integral part of India and no power on earth can change this fact.
Mr. Yashpaul Kundal while warning Pakistan to desist from its highly mischievous and hostile conduct said that the Union Govt. must give a blunt message to Pakistan restraining it from indulging in day dreaming on the issue of J&K. He said that the Nation was eagerly awaiting the tough posturing against Pakistani misadventures as emphatically proclaimed by Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi on scores of occasions. He said that it must be clear to all that the national security is paramount and no compromise on the same is acceptable in any situation.Mr. Kundal called upon Pakistan to rein-in its paid agents in J&K and refrain from any further misadventures in the interests of peace in South Asia. He further maintained that increase in the frequency of the ceasefire violations besides proxy war launched in the State of J&K by Pakistan called for stern measures against the rogue nation by taking the world community into confidence.
Prof.Bhim Singh, Supremo of National Panthers Party condemned the detention of the Panthers Party leaders and activists and described it as violation of their fundamental rights which they enjoy being citizens of India. He said that the Modi Govt. should understand the language and the message which had been brought by JKNPP leaders from J&K that J&K was India, is India and shall be India.
