The basic principles of JKIM regarding politics and religion are as follows:
(1) Religion and politics are inseparable and for a clean politics Islam provides the
best teachings, but at the same moment JKIM is against exploiting religion for materialistic benefits which true Muslims should
(2) Among the definite goals of JKIM is a strong and united Muslim community as we believe
that freedom requires unity of all masses and a support of all classes. We have made it a main purpose of our struggle to
bring Muslims on a single platform and establish a moment that would safeguard their future and revive Muslim ideals.
(3) The freedom struggle of the State of Jammu
and Kashmir is a religion-based peaceful and non violent national liberation struggle. By describing it a non religious or secular
movement or any type of communal agitation means …sentiments of the majority of the State. Our party considers the freedom
struggle in the State as people’s struggle for freedom against the foreign occupants and in contravention of international
(4) That the people of the state only, as sole masters of their motherland are competent
to determine the future status of the state. But the govt. of India and Pakistan, even without having any locus stand in the
matter of determining the future status of the state, do in view of the geo-political realities prevailing, practically emerge
as parties involved and effected by the problem and thereby their concurrence becomes necessary for a practical, peaceful
and lasting political settlement of the future status of the state. In no case however can the J&K problem are deemed
to be a border dispute between the two or more countries of this region.
(5) That an early solution of the problem is essential or restore basic human rights
to the people of the state and to relieve the sub-continent from political and socio-economic tension and to eliminate the
possibility of a nuclear conflict in this region.
(6) The interpretation of “azaadi” is that the forcible occupation of the
State is to be resisted by the people of all the five units of the State by organizing civil disobedience movement and demonstration
of public power based on the principle of non-violence and through democratic process. The State is to be liberated from occupational
forces and a society based on the concept of peoples power is to be established in which (a) every man and woman will have
the freedom to pursue his or her economic, religious and political beliefs (b) the governing system will be based on the principles
of democratic justice and religious harmony and tolerance (c) the state will be responsible for providing the people their
basic needs, education, sustenance and medical facilities (d) no person belonging to the State will be forcibly deprived of
his right to life and residence on the basis of his religious beliefs, ethnicity, caste, creed or language. (7) Patriotism means faithfulness towards one’s country, towards its people, towards the history and culture
of the community and safety and security of its borders and preservation of its sovereignty. Anybody or any party rejecting
the internationally accepted interpretation of patriotism is not a patriot from our party’s point of view.
