The Jammu Province People’s Forum heartily congratulates the people of the state in particular and people of the country in general on the anniversary of signing of J&K’s accession with India by Maharaj Hari Singh in 1947.

The forum believes in the finality of accession, which is irrevocable. It appeals to the people of the state in general and those in Jammu region and Ladakh in particular to celebrate the Accession Day on a grand scale, to give a befitting reply to those disputing the finality of the same and creating confusion in the minds of the people. The occasion should be observed as a festival like Diwali to carry the positive message to the world that any talk of separation and secession of J&K will not be tolerated by the nationalistic people of Jammu.

The JPPF condemns in strongest terms the attempts being made by the panel of interlocutors appointed by the Union Government on Jammu and Kashmir to internationalise the kashmir issue by suggesting involvement of Pakistan in the talks to solve the internal dimenstions of the J&K problem.

The terming of Kashmir problem as dispute by the interlocutors is counter to the committed stand of the country that J&K is part and parcel of India.  The Parliament has passed unanimous resolution in 1994 asserting the finality of accession and J&K being integral part of India including those parts which are illegally occupied by Pakistan through an act of aggression in 1947.

The forum is of the opinion that the central government is giving undue weightage to few anti national elements in Kashmir valley who are raising the bogey of permanent settlement of Kashmir issue, which the JPPF believes stand already settled through the instrument of accession signed by Maharaja Hari Singh and accepted by government of India on Oct 26 and 27 respectively in 1947.
The JPPF also condemns Omar Abdulla’s observation that J&K has only exceeded to India and not merged with it and that the accession is conditional. By stating this Omar has spoken the voice of separatists and hence violated the spirit of constitution of the state, the oath of which he has taken as MLA and Chief Minister of the state. He should apologize and take back his words and the Union govt should give halt to such voices in the valley. Failing this, the forum warns that an agitation of the pattern launched in 2008 over Amarnath Yatra land row will be launched again in Jammu.

The forum further condemns holding of seminar in New Delhi on the subject ‘Azad- the only way’ in which Ali Shah Geelani, Arunadhati Roy and some others made seditious speeches. It demands the government to take stern action against all these elements who are inciting sedition and secessionism. Arunadhati Roy’s observations in Srinagar two days ago that Kashmir was never a part of India is condemned with severest terms since it is against the historical facts.
