India, Israel resorting to identical tactics to change demographic composition of Kashmir & Palestine: Mahatir



ISLAMABAD, Oct 27 (APP):Former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Muhammad on Friday, drawing parallels between Kashmir and Palestine issues, said India was resorting to the same tactics that had been employed by Israel to suppress the voice of people of occupied areas over the decades.

He said India was now attempting to radically change the demographic composition of the occupied Jammu & Kashmir by settling non-Muslim outsides on the same pattern the Israel patronized the settlers to occupy the Palestinians’ lands over the years.

“India is attempting to change the demographic composition of the State of Jammu & Kashmir by settling non-Muslim outsiders in the Muslim majority areas in the same way the Israeli settlers have forcefully evicted Palestinians from their homes in the land grab activities sanctioned by the Tel Aviv regime,” Dr Mahatir, in his video message played at an event organized by the Pakistan High Commission in Malaysia to mark the Kashmir Black Day 2023.

He said India’s revocation of Jammu & Kashmir’s autonomy unilaterally four years ago saw the deployment of hundreds of thousands of soldiers into the illegally occupied territories of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Along with that, atrocities were committed, while placing the whole population under siege.”

He said, “We have also heard reports of how India is attempting to change the demographic composition of Jammu and Kashmir.”

It had indeed been a very long time since the occupation started and the recent treatments of India on the occupied territories “do not reflect that it plans to reconsider its occupation let alone end it anytime soon.
