This month the Indian Government revoked Articles 370 and 35A of the Constitution that has to date provided the Muslimmajority Jammu & Kashmir with autonomy. In response to the Indian Government’s actions, CMC released the following statement: “We, at Canberra Muslim Community Inc., express our grave concerns for the Kashmiri people. The current Government of India has been normalising vilification, persecution, and indiscriminate killings of the common Muslims... Through the recent actions and constitutional changes by the Indian Government, the lives, security, culture, and entire future of Muslims in Jammu and Kashmir are being deliberately put in peril. The media and communications blackouts, the backdrop of protracted persecution, the effective criminalising of dissent, and the proposed policies to facilitate demographic changes in the region appear eerily like the steps that preceded to making the Uyghur people of China among the most persecuted in the world...The Canberra Muslim Community would like to express its solidarity with the people of Kashmir in these dark days. We ask Allah (SWT), the One and Only, for the protection of the innocent and the persecuted.”
