Jammu groups seek probe
Jammu, June 26: Expressing grief over the gutting of Dastgeer Sahab (RA) shrine, various political and social organizations in Jammu have demanded a high-level probe in the incident.
“The coalition Government has failed even to protect the religious places,” Prof Bhim Singh, Chairman National Panthers Party said in a statement.
Dastgeer Sahab Dargah has been sacred for all, irrespective of their religious affiliations or political agenda, he said, adding that the incident has hurt the feelings of all and this tragedy deserves a high level judicial enquiry ‘to expose the conspiracy and bring the culprits to justice.’
“Enquiry by Divisional Commissioner will only be an eye wash that the bleeding people of J&K have been experiencing for decades in the corrupt NC-Congress rule,” Bhim Singh said.
Expressing deep sense of shock and sorrow over the tragic incident, Prof Chaman Lal Gupta, former Union Minister and MLA, said the shrine was the symbol of Sufi culture inherited in Kashmir.
He said that Government must come out with real cause of devastating fire to end different rumours. He hoped that Government will immediately reconstruct the shrine to assuage the feelings of the public.
The workers of Shiv Sena held a demonstration here today accusing the Government of neglect and failure to frame a policy to protect the symbol of brotherhood and peace in Kashmir.
“Government should take immediate action against the fire department officials who failed to discharge their duties at the time of need,” Ashok Gupta, state president of the organization said.
