Attacks on minorities increased under Modi’s India: JKPM

Jammu, June 10, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Movement (JKPM), a constituent of the forum led by the veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that minority communities are living in a constant state of fear since Narendra Modi took over as the Prime Minister of India.

Reacting to the killing of an innocent Sikh youth, Jagjit Singh, by Indian police in Jammu, the JKPM Working Chairman, Mir Shahid Saleem, in a statement said that ever since the Modi-led government came to power in New Delhi, the Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and other minorities had been living in a state of perpetual fear and terror. The BJP regime was trying to crush the identity and aspirations of the minorities across India by using state machinery.

He further said that the Sikhs who had long been fighting for their identity and political aspirations had always been meted out the most inhuman and brutal treatment. He condemned the use of brute force against the Sikh protestors, who were paying tributes to their cherished hero, Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindhranwale. Earlier, Mir Shahid Saleem led a three member party delegation to the family of victim Jagjit Singh who was killed by police on June 3.
