Terming the on-going oppression against Jammu Muslims as an attempt to harass Jammu Muslims, JKLF chief Friday Yasin Malik Friday said that attempts to frighten Jammu Muslims at the behest of RSS are a conspiracy and this communal scheme is being backed up and supported by all pro–India parties and leaders of Jammu Kashmir including PDP, NC, Congress, Communists who have all along maintained criminal silence over these attempts.
Malik said, “this criminal silence and silent support is actually like facilitating the ethnic cleansing of Jammu Muslims and an attempt to repeat 1947. Muslims of Kashmir will not remain silent spectators over this alarming situation and we will do everything possible to safeguard the rights and lives of Jammu Muslims.”
In a party statement, Malik said, “after the establishment of present PDP/BJP rule, Jammu Muslims are being targeted and terrorized and in a systematic manner and an atmosphere of fear is being created among them. Rulers at the behest of RSS are trying to recreate and repeat 1947 and by displacing Muslims from Jammu belt are actually engaged in fulfilling RSS agenda of demography change in Jammu region. These incidents of desecrating Islamic symbols, hurting sentiments of Muslims, displacing them from their homes in the name of forest land, and creating fear among Muslims in Chenab area by deploying Hindu officers in place of Muslim officers is not tolerable and growing anger among Kashmiris over this and concern shows genuine and legitimate.”
He said that 1947 like situation is being created throughout Jammu, Rajouri, Poonch, Doda, Kishtwar, Baderwah and Rambhan areas and rulers want to displace Muslims from these areas so that is becomes easy for them to settle down RSS agents and workers from outside state in these areas.
Malik said, “separating Jammu Kashmir on communal lines is old agenda of RSS and so called Jammu Kashmir government by following policies like these are actually fulfilling this condemnable agenda. Kashmiri will not watch atrocities on Jammu Muslims silently and will do everything possible to safeguard the interests of Jammu Muslims.”
Malik added that concern shown by various trade bodies and chambers of Kashmir over the Rajouri incident and other continuous developments in Jammu are genuine and timely and Jammu Kashmir liberation front (JKLF) has decided to extend its full support to the strike and shut down call given by these trade bodies and chambers.
He appealed people of Kashmir to stand united for their Jammu brethren and observe a complete and comprehensive shutdown on Saturday 25th July 2015. “Our peaceful and complete protest shutdown should send a message to all communal forces and rulers that their conspiracies to terrorize Muslims will never succeed.”
