Posted on 02 October 2019 by Admin_markaz


1 Oct, New Delhi: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has expressed grave concern over the situation in Kashmir. Addressing the media at Jamaat’s monthly press meet, the President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Syed Sadatullah Hussaini said: “We want the government to remove the severe restrictions on the people of Kashmir. People are without internet and mobile services since the last two months. The imprisonment of political leadership of an entire state is against our democratic ethos. We are highly concerned about reports emanating from fact-finding teams to the Kashmir valley led by human rights organizations and civil society. They are reporting unjustified arrests of Kashmiri youth, application of excessive force to quell protests and severe shortage of medicines and disruption in healthcare facilities”.


Answering a query regarding the recently announced block level elections in Jammu and Kashmir, the JIH President said: “More than block level elections, what is required are assembly elections and release of political detainees. Other restrictions on the people’s right to information and movement should also be removed. Only then can the democratic process appear meaningful”.


About the falling economy Ameer e Jamaat said: “corporate tax cuts will not help as it does not address the problem of weak aggregate demand, low consumption and high unemployment. The efforts are being made on supply side whereas what is required is to boost demand in the market”.


Earlier the Vice President of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Muhammad Salim Engineer, while briefing the media said: “Jamaat would like to emphasize its long-standing position that the affairs of Jammu and Kashmir must be resolved by talks, consultation and dialogue with the people of the state and their representatives”. He also conveyed the concern at the slowdown of India’s economy and pointed out the how we must move towards equity-based financing rather than interest-based financing to tide our investment needs.
