According to local residents, Indian troops are taking videos and pictures of Kashmiri women and children to use them as a weapon against the Kashmiri people, engaged in struggle for freedom against India’s illegal occupation of their motherland.
In IIOJK, political analysts and experts have said, Indian troops are applying every brutal methods to suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom struggle and hurt their religious sentiments to punish them for demanding freedom from India.
An earlier KMS report, quoting political experts and analysts, said besides killing innocent youth in IIOJK, the troops are continuously hurting the religious sentiments and feelings of the Kashmiri people.
They said that the latest of such incidents occurred in Jan Mohalla area of Shopian when the troops damaged and desecrated a mosque and the Holy Quran during a cordon and search operation.
They said the desecration of the Holy Quran and mosque by the troops in Shopian is intolerable for the Kashmiri Muslims.
The political experts and analysts said Indian troops have been involved in such activities in IIOJK for the last over seven decades.
"The burning down of Charar-i-Sharief Shrine in May 1995, desecration of Dargah Hazratbal during the worst military siege in November 1993 and violation of the sanctity of Jamia Masjid Srinagar during a military operation in August 1989 and at several other occasions are blot on the secular face of India," they said.
The political experts and analysts pointed out that Hindutva forces have planned to destroy Islamic centres in IIOJK. “Modi intends to replicate episodes like Babri Masjid in entire India and particularly in IIOJK. Modi brigade has announced to bring back a pre-Islamic era and impose a predominant Hindu culture in the occupied territory. BJP and RSS leaders have openly said that 50,000 temples will be built in Kashmir,” they said.
However, they maintained that the communal BJP and RSS are destined to fail in intimidating the Kashmiri Muslims.
