JKPM holds seminar on Dogra certificate
Jammu, Apr 16: The senior leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference and chairman Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement Ghulam Ahmed Mir on Saturday blamed state as well as Centre for dividing people in the name of issuance of Dogra certificate.
“At a time when world community was exerting pressure on India and Pakistan to find a peaceful and permanent resolution to the Kashmir issue, the Govt of India and its agencies were busy in hatching new controversies to divide the people along religious, regional, ethnic and linguistic lines,” Mir said addressing a seminar on “Dogra Certificate: a conspiracy to disintegrate the Jammu and Kashmir” here on Saturday.
“People of Jammu and Kashmir have been making supreme sacrifices to take the ongoing freedom struggle in Jammu and Kashmir to its logical conclusion,’’ he added.
He said the Dogra certificate was aimed to pave the way for the division of the Jammu and Kashmir and people of the state would never let it happen.
The APHC leader and provincial president of the Democratic Freedom Party S. Narender Singh Khalsa said the people are fighting for the right to self-determination and New Delhi was creating confusion among the people of Jammu and Kashmir by making one irresponsible move after another.
Noted intellectual and writer Dr Zahoor-ud-Din said historically the Dogra speaking populations was confined to a very small pockets and the government decision to bring the whole Jammu province under the Dogra identification was rightly viewed with suspicion and skepticism.
He said before making this controversial move the government should have thought about its repercussions.
Senior APHC leader Abdul Ghani Shah described the Dogra certificate as a move to distort the identity of the Jammu Muslims.
He said Gujjars, Paharies, Bhderwahies and other ethnic groups of the Jammu province have all rejected this sinister move aimed at bringing the whole population under one particular identification.
Prominent among others who spoke on the occasion and condemned the move included Advocate Jameel Kazmi, Moulana Ghulam Nabi Fareedabadi, Haji Abdul Majeed, S. Bhaghwan Singh, Satish Poonch, DS Sharma, and Sheikh Ali Mumammad.
