Muslim parliamentarians on behalf of the Muslims of Sri Lanka should denounce this political process in the Indian parliament (Lok Sabah).

It is sad to see a Prime Minister of a Democratic country which is a member of the UN, without “DENOUNCING WHAT INDIA HAS DONE” to wish well to the passing of a bill by the Narendra Modi’s BJP government to oppress the Kashmir people further. The Bill is repealing legislations 35 A which deals with the peoples’ rights in Kashmir and Bill 370 which deals with India’s administration of Kashmir which was put in place on the advice of the British in 1950 just after India was partitioned in 1947. This Prime Minister of ours is playing to the gallery by his tweet published today, hoping that the Buddhist in Sri Lanka will vote him, and his alliance to power at the next presidential election and general elections.

“Ladakh” is mountainous terrain and has the very little (extremely small) population and yes, they are Buddhists. But there are Muslims and Hindus also in that population. Shame on our PM to make such a racial and discriminative “TWEET” telling that India will create a first Buddhist State.

Ranil has failed to respect the Muslim majority Kashmir which has been now made to suffer and has not made any reference to that “INJUSTICE”. THE MUSLIMS OF SRI LANKA SHOULD NEVER FORGIVE THIS SHAMELESS PM OF OURS FOR FORGETTING HOW HE IS STILL SITTING IN THE PM CHAIR BECAUSE OF THE MUSLIM VOTES THE “HANSAYA” AND THE UNF GOT IN 2015.

“The Muslim Voice” acknowledges the oppression of the Kashmiri People by India over the last 70 years, without conducting the “PLEBICITE” ordered by the UN in 1948. India went to war with Pakistan on the contrary. The BJP government headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi proposed Monday revoking Article 370 of India’s constitution, which confers special rights to permanent residents of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. “The Muslim Voice” fully and totally rejects this political move by the BJP government of Narendra Modi and his minister of home affairs, Amith Shah. “The Muslim Voice” calls the government of Sri Lanka and all 21 Muslim parliamentarians on behalf of the Muslims of Sri Lanka to denounce this political process in the Indian parliament (Lok Sabah) which is to further oppress the people of Kashmir and deny them democracy further.

    Kashmir was a Buddhist Country before the Mogul Invasions and it is should be a part of India. Just as Pakistan became a Muslim Country India should become Hindustan and get rid of the colonial given name – India. It is far better for Kashmir to become totally an Indian territory with facilities for all nationalities to live work and prosper rather than leave it to Muslims and backwardness!

  2. Dilrook Says:

    I disagree. Ranil is right on this one.

    The act of splitting Ladakh from Muslim majority Jammu and Kashmir is good.

    However, India’s intention is not so good. What happened to Buddhist majority Sikhim will happen to Ladakh too. It was a Buddhist majority area until 1980s but now a Hindu majority area. This is the problem. The conflict between Hindus and Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir ensured Buddhists survived.

  3. Noor Nizam Says:

    Pakistani PM Imran Khan has vowed to fight India’s decision to revoke Indian-administered Kashmir’s autonomy, including at the UN Security Council.
    What did Mr Khan say?
    The Pakistani prime minister said he wanted to “tell the world” about the decision announced by the Indian government on Monday. Mr Khan said the move was in breach of international law, adding that he feared ethnic cleansing by India.
    “Through the United Nations Security Council, we are studying it now, we will raise it in General Assembly, we will talk to heads of States at every forum… we will raise it in the media and tell the world,” he told parliament on Tuesday.
    Mr Khan said he thought the removal of special status would allow India to change the demographic make-up of the Muslim-majority state.

    “I am afraid that [India] will now carry out ethnic cleansing in Kashmir,” he said.

    “They will try to remove the local people and bring in others and make them a majority, so that the locals become nothing but slaves.”

    Kashmir dispute: India PM Modi defends lifting special status

    4 hours ago

    The BBC reports from inside Indian-administered Kashmir

    Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appeared on state media to defend his highly controversial decision to remove the special status accorded to Kashmir.

    Mr Modi said a “new era” was beginning for the Indian-administered part of the region, where “hindrances” to its development had been lifted.

    The area has been in lockdown since Sunday night, with mobile, landline and internet networks cut off.

    Pakistan says the removal of special status breaches international law.

    Like India, Pakistan claims Kashmir in its entirety, and the two nuclear-armed powers have fought several wars over the Himalayan region since partition in 1947. Each controls part of the territory.

    Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi ruled out a new military conflict on Thursday, telling reporters in the capital Islamabad: “We’re not looking at the military option. We’re not.”

    This is Mr Modi’s first address to the nation since Monday’s announcement in parliament that Article 370 – the part of the constitution guaranteeing Jammu and Kashmir special status – had been revoked.

    Mr Modi made his address via a broadcast on TV and radio – the latter the only platform that could reach Kashmiris while the region was still under lockdown.

    The speech came amid uncertainty and division. While many Indians welcomed the move and lauded Mr Modi’s government for its decisiveness, others criticised India for what they said were heavy-handed and even unconstitutional tactics.

    What did Modi say?

    When the government stripped Indian-administered Kashmir of its autonomy, it also moved to divide it into two federally-administered territories: Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. Such “union territories” have less autonomy from the federal government than states do.

    In his speech, Mr Modi suggested that Jammu and Kashmir could eventually re-gain the status of a state, but Ladakh would remain a union territory.

    “The scrapping of Article 370 is the beginning of a new era,” he said.

    Kashmir’s special status, the prime minister argued, had been used as a weapon by Pakistan to “instigate some people”, but now India would rid the region of “terrorism and terrorists”.

    Has PM Modi kept India safe?

    “There will be a lot of development,” he said. “All the citizens will be given their rights.”

    He promised greater voting rights and transparency, as well as better rail and road links, and said the young people of Kashmir should “take charge of the development of their own land”.

    A cinema industry could flourish in the picturesque region, he suggested.

    “I think the whole world will come and shoot their films there,” he said. “[This will] bring employment for the people there.”

    And he painted a picture of exports from the area taking off: “The colour of saffron or the taste of coffee from Jammu and Kashmir, be it the sweetness of the apple or the succulence of the apricot, be it Kashmiri shawls… they need to be spread worldwide.”

    What is happening in Kashmir?

    Anticipating unrest over the controversial move, the government moved tens of thousands of troops into India’s northern-most region before Monday.

    On Sunday evening, internet, mobile phone networks and landlines in the region were cut off; and political leaders, including two former chief ministers, were put under house arrest. They are reportedly still detained.

    The BBC has interviewed several Kashmiris in the region and other parts of India – they all spoke of a deep sense of betrayal and fear over what lies ahead.

    At least 300 people – including politicians, activists, business leaders and professors – have reportedly been detained. There have also been instances of protesters throwing stones at security forces.
    Why did the BJP revoke Article 370?

    The Hindu nationalist BJP party has long vowed to revoke the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir. The party’s 2019 election manifesto said it was “discriminatory against non-permanent residents and women of Kashmir”, adding that it was an “obstacle in the development of the state.”

    Article 370 guaranteed the Muslim-majority region greater autonomy than any other Indian state, as well as special privileges in education, jobs and property ownership.

    The special status often rankled the Hindu right-wing, which saw it as a “historical wrong”. The revocation was welcomed by BJP leaders and party supporters, who said Kashmir was finally “fully” integrated with India.

    The move also energised the party’s base, which celebrated it as further proof of Mr Modi’s muscular nationalism. And some analysts described as a bold political move the swift, assured manner in which the BJP rolled back a 70-year-old deal between Delhi and India’s most volatile region.

    While many opposition lawmakers launched a scathing criticism of the government, several parties backed the decision over fears of being labelled “anti-national”. A senior leader from the main opposition Congress party said his party had been “politically outwitted” by the BJP.

    What was the international reaction?

    China has described the removal of Kashmir’s special status as “unacceptable”.

    The United Nations said it was “deeply concerned” about the situation. UN spokesperson Rupert Colville said the “blanket telecommunications restrictions, perhaps more blanket than we have seen before” would prevent people from “participating fully in democratic debate about the future status of Jammu and Kashmir”.

    Anywhere mussies go, it becomes mussie majority, thanks to baby machines. Iran, afganisthan, pakesthan, bangladesh, malaysia and indonesia former Buddhist countries all succumbed to mussie baby machines. The dirty, disgusting, subhuman trick was tried in Myanmar recently, but failed thanks to their patriotic leader. Sri Lanka, is
    the mussies’ next target and with there are so many Sinhalese (by name only) traitors in abundance, they know
    Sri Lanka is on the way to become old Buddhist Sri Lanka. India is only taking actions to stop that. Obviously all mussies are dead against it. That’s the crux of the matter.

    Earth’s size is a grain of sand in the vast vast universe where distances are measured in light years. The grain of
    sand is bursting at the seams with too many people. While numbers go up, forests are being destroyed, seas
    getting polluted with millions of tons of plastic etc. etc. lands used for food production getting less and less,
    temperatures are rising soon people will be killing each other for food, space etc. etc. Yet no one, including world powers, say stop baby production. That’s the first step to save the planet. Why didn’t these gods make the earth much bigger, like Jupiter or something like that? Just a grain of sand! They couldn’t of course, since they were all mythical!

    Yes, very soon the two major population components of Lanka will be the Tamils and the Muslims.

    Very soon the Lord Buddha will be an avatar of Vishnu for the ones, and a prophet of Allah for the others.

    “I am afraid that [India] will now carry out ethnic cleansing in Kashmir,” – Imran Khan

    IK is a great patriot. He works for Pakistan. He is not talking about Sri Lanka’s interests here, does he ?

    Patriots who work for Sri Lanka should clean all provinces ethnically so that all provinces will have same ethnic proportions, regardless of 13th amendment is kept or discarded.

    Allah or Maha Brahma did not create different provinces to different ethnic groups. Everything is subjected to change. All changes are man made and those changes should benefit the country and reduce conflicts. Mr. Noor Nizam should set aside what Koran said about killing disbelievers and idol worshipers and patriots should strictly follow Lord Buddha to treat everyone fairly.
    Sri Lanka is a Buddhist State.
