Sardar Masood Khan Wednesday said that India, in a planned move, was
settling outsiders in Occupied Kashmir to change the demography of the
territory.
Ratio of Muslim population was gradually decreasing in the occupied
valley, he said talking to a private news channel.

refugees of West Pakistan and people from Bengal, Bihar and Rajasthan in
the occupied Kashmir.
The AJK President said employments were also being offered to
non-Kashmiris which was violation of the constitution.
He said properties of Kashmiris were also being sold to outsiders.
India was also settling retired officers of Indian Army in the valley
and separate colonies were being established for them, he added.
He said the government of Pakistan had raised the matter and also
wrote a letter to the United Nations.

was also taking steps and would use all available forums to highlight
this issue, he said.
