Jammu, June 28:

Pakistan  is continuing with its bad habit of  interfering in the internal affairs of India , particularly  with regard to Jammu and Kashmir  without  realizing  that it has no locus standi in any of the affairs.

It has come out with a new  methodology of rejecting everything that India does in its integral  part , Jammu and Kashmir. It has now taken on the domicile policy  and  charged that it is  to change the demographic character of J&K . It has not read nor it wants to read the constitutional correctness in the matter .

The Indian government has given access to all the eligible citizens who fulfill the criteria of stay in J&K for a period of at least 15 years , to secure the domicile  certificate to  share jobs . It is a constitutionally validated move  as the J&K reoorganisation Act was passed by the parliament that replaced the unfair constitutional provisions of Article 370 and Article 35 A . Those constitutional provisions were discriminatory as those differentiated between the citizens of India and those living in J&K with permanent resident certificate. Now, that anomaly has been  eliminated and all Indian citizens are equal in the other parts of the county as also Jammu and Kashmir that is an integral part of the country.

Pakistan Foreign office spokesperson Aisha Farooqi in a statement on Saturday, as quoted by Pakistani media, said: “The certificates issued to non-Kashmiris including, among others, the Indian government officials under “Jammu and Kashmir Grant of Domicile Certificate (Procedure), 2020″ are illegal, void and in complete violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions, and International law including the 4th Geneva Convention.”

It has aligned the move of the Government of India to undo injustice with the people who had been living in J&K for over decades without citizenship rights, as “illegal” and in violation of the UN resolutions on Kashmir. Only the state subjects or permanent  resident certificate holders  were having all the rights in J&K until the constitutional provisions of Article 370 and Article 35 A  which were scrapped by the Indian Parliament with an overwhelming majority in its both houses on August 5-6 last year.
