The Government of India was cautioned that the continuation of the appeasement policies towards Muslim secessionists is encouraging them to push their agenda of Talibanization in Kashmir which is also extending its tentacles across the whole of India. The Indian Government needs to use all its might to crush the secessionist forces and their anti-national agenda.

They stressed that the Hindu communities all over the world totally oppose the idea of autonomous Kashmir , as by the virtue of the Instrument of Accession ,Kashmir is an integral part of India.
