Demolitions trigger resentment in Khanqah-e-Moulla
‘We haven’t been paid even a penny’
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar,Dec 8: Authorities Saturday demolished seven residential houses in congested Khanqah—e-Moulla area of Shaher-e-Khaas for road widening –triggering severe criticism from the owners who said they have not been paid even a penny as compensation.
A delegation of complainants said the houses belonged to Sheikh Maqsood Rasool son of Sheikh Muhammad Sultan and six others including Nazir Ahmed Wani son of Muhammad Yousuf Wani, Ali Muhammad Koul, Bashir Ahmed Wani, Nazim Ali, Fayaz Ahmed Wani and Abdul Salam Misger.
The affected said the demolitions came as a shocker. “We had not received any formal notice. We were discussing the issue of compensation with the district administration when the demolitions were carried out,” the affected said.
Meanwhile the residents of Khanqah-e-Moulla have threatened to stage protests should the government fail to “adequately compensate the victims whose dwellings were razed to ground.”
