Demolition drive in Jammu reflects admin’s communal mindset: Mirwaiz

Srinagar: Terming the eviction of more than hundred families belonging to a particular religious community of Gul Gujral, Jammu as “atrocious and communal,” the Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Thursday said the way in which the dwellings of these families in presence of administration of Jammu division were demolished and destroyed and the dwellers thrown out is “highly condemnable and reflect the communal mindset of the authorities.”
In a statement here, Mirwaiz said it was the duty of state government to rehabilitate the poor migrants with dignity, adding that they were made homeless and subjected to various sufferings “only because they belonged to a particular religious community.”
Meanwhile, a Hurriyat spokesman has condemned the continuous detention of senior leader Zaffar Akbar Bhat and “hundreds of youth under the cover of holding the so-called elections.” He demanded immediate release of Bhat and other youth who continue to be under the police custody.
