Dukhtaran-e-Millat on Saturday said that Government of India’s plan to issue 1-stop I-card to Kashmiris is yet another conspiracy to breach the privacy and intrude into the personal lives of people of Kashmir.
Reportedly, the government of India has planned to issue these cards to the people of Kashmir to “increase surveillance and keep a check on militancy-related” activities in Kashmir.
“This is yet another ugly Indian tactic against the people of Kashmir. India has issued Aadhar cards which contains all the details of an individual then why is this new 1-stop I-card being issue. It just smells of a conspiracy against the people of Kashmir,” an DeM general secretary, Nahida Nasreen, said in a statement.
She said that the plan to issue it only for the people of Kashmir is what makes it a matter of grave concern. “It was issued to residents of border areas but now they are planning to issue it to the people of Kashmir. It only means that they want to increase the surveillance in Kashmir and want to bring every Kashmiri under its surveillance net,” she added.
She said that such measures by India only expose the level of frustration it is going through. “India actually knows that every Kashmiri wants freedom from Kashmir that is why there is a plan to issue such a card to Kashmiris. Some people may, under pressure or for material gains, side with India but India is aware that every Kashmiri is against its illegal rule in Kashmir and thus, such conspiracies are being hatched every now and then,” she added.
Nasreen said that these are crucial times for the Kashmir movement and people must be ready for any kind of eventuality. “India will try to implement such schemes here but we must unanimously fight against such plots. We have done it past. Our unanimous resolve against Indian occupation is praiseworthy and we believe that unitedly we can fail this conspiracy as well.”
