EFSAS comments on the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of so-called ‘Azad’ J&K


The 14th Amendment Bill brought back into focus the trick played against the residents of Pakistan-Administered J&K, who were made to believe that they were free through use of catchy and emotive terminology in the naming of their region, only to be rudely disappointed by the subservience to Pakistan that was blatantly dictated by the 1974 Interim Constitution. The 14th amendment simultaneously further detracts from the limited rights and freedoms given to the people of Pakistan-Administered J&K, while strengthening the grip of the Pakistani State over the region even more.
