Remembering the victims of Jammu massacre on Tuesday, senior separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq paid homage to them and their tremendous sacrifice.
Remembering more than two lakh #JammuMartyrs massacred on this day by fanatics aided and abetted by the Dogra rulers of the day. Entire Nation pays homage to them and their tremendous sacrifice. Inshallah truth will prevail,” Mirwaiz wrote on his twitter handle.
After the Partition of India, during October–November 1947 in the Jammu region of the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, a large number of Muslims were massacred and others drove away to West Punjab. The killings were carried out by “extremist Hindus and Sikhs”, aided and abetted by the forces of the Dogra State headed by the Maharaja Hari Singh.
