Srinagar: Reacting sharply to the statement issued by Chamber of Commerce and Industry Jammu that it would start the ‘Identify and Kill Movement’ against Bangladeshi and Rohingya migrants if they are not deported within one month by the JK government, the Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan said in a statement on Saturday that so called movement aimed at “systematic genocide of Muslims.”
Khan who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation said Rakesh Gupta, president CCI has spoken of “murderous intentions”.
“How can you use words like ‘Indentify and Kill’ in a civilized society and what is preventing the government from filing an FIR into this irresponsible which has come from reputed organization of Jammu Inc,” Khan said.
Khan said if Jammu Inc feels unsafe due to Rohingya and Bangladeshi Muslims, why it was silent over issue of West Pakistan refugees. “Why is Jammu Inc resorting to discrimination or is it simply part of the conspiracy to eliminate Muslims from the map of Jammu and Kashmir as happened in 1947,” Khan asked.
Khan said the statement from the Jammu Inc seems to be part of the deep rooted conspiracy and that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who is also the Home Minister must get a FIR filed in the irresponsible statement.
“Had such a statement come from Kashmir Inc, entire business community would have been labeled as terrorists and put behind the bars, but government is silent as the statement has come from Jammu.”
Khan said government failure to resolve the matter would drag the state towards another turmoil. “The Jammu Inc must introspect as what they have said, because such a biased and irresponsible statement was not expected from our brethren there.”
Khan said Jammu Inc has started giving communal color to routine issue and this is something bad and provocative and against the business interests of the twin regions of the state.
