Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference Chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday alleged that authorities and “fanatical forces” were preparing ground for a genocide of Muslim community in Jammu.
Stating that Muslims in Jammu were being harassed on one pretext or the other, Geelani warned of dire consequences if “intimidations” of Muslim community are not stopped forthwith.
Referring to recent incident in Ustad Mohalla in Jammu, Geelani strongly condemned police and civil authorities for what he called “their communal approach” and said that RSS and other “communal forces” not only seem to be preparing a ground for another massacre of Jammu Muslims “but even seem to be desperate to compel Muslim for major migration likewise that of 1947.”
Blaming “Jan Sangh cadre” for their “feverish” activities, Geelani said that “these elements are hell-bent to declare Jammu a territory free from Muslim community”.
“RSS and BJP through its jingoistic and so-called ‘Ghar Wapsi’ like dogmatic ideology are hell-bent to convert all Muslims to Hindu and whosoever will dare to resist will either be killed or compelled to leave his birthplace,” he said adding that these forces are working on manifold policies. “On one hand forces have been vested with unbridled powers and they kill whosoever comes in their way, while as Zafrani Brigade in Jammu has been given free hand to go for genocide in Jammu city,” Geelani said.
He added that it has been “proved beyond doubt” that local administration including ADC and police
“too are a part of this dirty game plane and are preparing to repeat 1947 like situation in Jammu.”
Geelani warned against any misadventure against Muslim community and said that even a flare can lead to an explosive and uncontrollable situation.
Addressing the Muslim communities in Jammu, Chenab valley and Pirpanchal, Geelani said that Kashmiri Muslims will stand with them.
“We will do whatever is possible and won’t leave Muslim community in Jammu at the mercy of these fanatical forces,” he said.
