A protest was staged here against the Forest Minister Balli Bhagat who has ordered eviction of Tribal Muslims from their lands in Jammu region.
General Sectary of JK Gujjar-Bakarwal Community Mohammad Yasin said: “We are being forced to leave from the places wherein we have been living since years and from last two months the Forest Minister is using bulldozers to destroy our homes from forest land.”
“Not only Muslims but Hindus are also living there but why only Muslim community is being forced and not the Hindus,” he asked.
According to KNS, the Gujjar Bakarwal community gave forest minister an ultimatum of 10 days to stop such action against them or else they will hold wide scale protests across India. “If something untoward happens during the protests, forest minister will be responsible,” protestors warned.
