Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir’s traders’ organization Beopar Mandal Mahraj Gunj on Saturday expressed anguish and deep concern over the reports of vandalizing the properties and carrying attacks on Kashmir Muslims living in Jammu by the “fanatic forces”.
In a statement issued here, the traders’ body said the situation in Jammu indicated that this has been done under “a well-planned conspiracy to defeat the rich socio-cultural ties between people of Kashmir and Jammu,” adding “such situations are always created to gain the political benefits on behest of communal forces.”
They appealed the Civil Society and Trader Organizations of Jammu to stop “the goons to distort the rich relation between Jammu and Kashmir”.
Terming the protests of Kashmir Traders as genuine, they stated at this junction we stand with our fraternity.
“A delegation comprising Beopar Mandal Mahraj Gunj president Khursheed Ahmad Dalal, Manzoor Ahmad Sofi, Ayaz Zehgeer and others participated in the meeting of traders and extended full support,” the statement said.
