    Separatists outstretch Hindu-Refugees’ I-Card issue to buttress anti-India campaign


    Tawi, Jan 03(KIP): Despite the fact that the state Government has
    made it clear that it has no plan to issue domicile certificates to
    the refugees from West Pakistan separatists continue to make an issue
    out of a non-issue.

    Notwithstanding the fact that the State Government has explained
    that refugees from West Pakistan were issued identification
    certificates, separatists continue to resort to breast beating
    alleging that the demographic character of the state could be altered
    if these refugees were given state subject certificates.

    These refugees from West Pakistan, who reside for the last 40 to
    70 years in the border areas of Jammu need some identification
    certificates so that they are genuine residents of the areas including
    Samba, R.S.Pora and Kathua.Without these identification certificates
    some of them could get into trouble during search operations which the
    security forces launch for nabbing militants.

    Kashmiri Separatist held a demonstration against issuing of
    domicile certificates to West Pakistan Refugees (WPRs) in Srinagar.
    The protesters said that the issuance of domicile certificates to West
    Pakistan refugees, allowing banks outside the Jammu and to
    confiscate and hold properties and court orders regarding the
    sovereignty of the state were an issue of “life and death and no
    Kashmiri can afford to sit silent on these issues.”

    “State government has incarcerated thousands of young and old in the
    name of democracy which is highly condemnable,” they said.

    The protesters, chanting pro-freedom and pro-unity slogans, said
    domicile certificates and SC verdict were “conspiracies to change the
    demography of . (KIP) ”
