Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the orders of delimitation commission set up by the Indian government for fixing boundaries of Assembly and Parliamentary segments in occupied Jammu and Kashmir cannot be challenged in any court, a move seen by many political analysts as an attempt by Delhi to ensure the restriction of Muslim majority seats in the occupied territory.
The law governing creation of the body makes it unambiguously clear that its every order shall have the force of the law and shall not be called in question in any court, says Delimitation Commission Act.
“Upon publication in the Gazette of India, every such order shall have the force of law and shall not be called in question in any court,” reads sub-section (2) of section 10 of Delimitation Commission Act-2002.
“The Delimitation Commission shall cause its order made under clause (d) of sub-section (3) of section 4 to be published in the Gazette, and upon such publication, the said order shall have the force of law and shall not be called in question in any court,” read Jammu and Kashmir Representation of Peoples Act-1957.
The law is no more applicable to J&K from October 31 last year after the Indian Parliament illegally approved the scrapping of Article 370 of the Indian constitution.
A three-member delimitation commission headed by former Indian Supreme Court Judge, Justice Ranjana Desai has been set up to undertake delimitation of Assembly and Parliamentary segments in occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two more Kashmiri youth in Pulwama district, today, taking the toll to 15 within 24 hours.
The youth were killed by the troops during a cordon and search operation in Saimoh area of the district. The authorities suspended internet service in the area.
Yesterday, the troops martyred 13 Kashmiri youth; 10 during a violent military operation in Mendhar and other villages of Poonch district and three in Nawshehra area of Rajouri district.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Movement, Pir Panjal Civil Society and Pir Panjal Peace Foundation in their statements strongly condemned the killing of youth in Nowshera and Mendhar in Rajouri and Poonch districts by Indian forces.
They said India would have to pay the price of the sacred blood of innocent youth, one day.–Agencies
