Fake terror cases will marginalize Muslims: Majlis-e-Mushawarat
‘Displaced Pandits Should Be Rehabilitated Among General Population’
GK MONITORING DESK
New Delhi, July 7: All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat Saturday vowed to address the issue of “random arrests of Muslim youth in the name of fighting terrorism.”
The Working Committee of the All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat held its meeting here today under the chairmanship of President, Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, resolving to “face this issue head-on on political and legal levels.”
“The meeting approved the preparation of a white paper on terrorism to put things in perspective and present a documented dossier to the authorities, media and human rights organisations at home and abroad about how Muslim youth are implicated and defamed in the name of fighting terror,” a spokesman of the Mushawarat said in a statement.
RETURN OF KPs
“While wholeheartedly supporting the idea of the return of the Kashmiri Pandits to their homeland, the AIMMM shares the apprehensions of a section of J&K leadership that resettling Kashmiri Pandits in segregated colonies will pose problems for the state in future. The displaced Pandits should be rehabilitated within their own historical habitats and within the general population of the state. Given the relations of some of Kashmiri Pandit organisations with extremist saffron outfits, it is justified to fear that secluded colonies will become hotbeds of saffron militancy and terror and a permanent source of friction in the state,” read a resolution of the Mashawarat.
MILITANCY IN JK
The Mashawarat said the former J&K Police Chief Kuldip Khuda has asserted that “while relinquishing his duties last month, only 200 militants are active in J&K and out of them, 170 are active in the Valley and 30 are active in the Jammu region.”
“In this situation, the AIMMM feels that there is no justification for keeping 700,000 soldiers in the Valley and maintaining the draconian APSPA law which is anti-democratic and anti-people. The AIMMM reiterates its demand that the army should be removed forthwith from all inhabited areas of J&K and relocated either to army camps or posted on the borders,” another resolution read.
