Srinagar, October 06 : In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, post August 5, 2019, actions by fascist Indian government has even forced pro-India politicians from IIOJK like senior congress leader and former Indian minister Professor Saifuddin Soz to admit that Kashmir is a prison and incarceration of PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti is a revengeful measure and an onslaught of vindictiveness on the part of the Indian government.
Senior congress leader in a statement issued in Srinagar said, “I agree with world-famous intellectual, Noam Chomsky that Kashmir is a prison and symptoms of fascism are already visible; I also see Mehbooba Mufti’s incarceration as a ‘revengeful measure”.
He said, “I have a feeling that the world famous American intellectual, Noam Chomsky was correct when he reiterated recently that Kashmir was a prison and there were symptoms of fascism under the BJP Government already visible!
“His conclusion was that the whole institutional structure of India, plus the great mass of the Hindu population was evidently very supportive of the undermining of Kashmir autonomy and opening up to India settlement. He also felt that the press in India was muzzled”, Soz said.
While quoting Chomsky, he said then world famous intellectual referred to the backlash he faced at the hands of the BJP supporters, when he talked about Indian repression in Kashmir and was advised to have police protection.
