Eviction of Muslims from selective Jammu areas denounced

Jammu, June 15, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Muslim Federation Jammu has strongly opposed the eviction of people from selective areas in Jammu under the garb of anti-encroachment drive. The Executive Committee of the Federation that met in Jammu today under the chair of its president, Abdul Majid, sought revocation of the discriminatory order issued in April 2015 related to the colonies linked particularly with the Muslim community.

The participants pointed out that land in thousands of Kanals belonging to forest department in Sunjwan was under the occupation of Indian Army, Air Force and Armed Police, while in Rakh Bahu, the forest land was occupied by Fruit Mandi, Sabzi Mandi, Transport Yard, Qasim Nagar, Gorkha Nagar and Bahu Fort colony. They further said that Jammu University and Army camp opposite to it besides Sidhra Golf Course are all on the land belonging to forest department.

“This sinister design of evil forces will in no way be allowed by the Muslim community of Jammu to succeed,” the Federation members vowed and condemned the ill conceived and discriminatory order by the authorities while calling for its immediate withdrawal.
