Pak woman fights to get her husband’s land back
Baramulla, Apr 30: Zareena, 50, of Rawalpindi Pakistan is fighting a lone battle to regain the property of her husband which he left behind some 64 years ago and migrated to Pakistan.
According to Zareena, her husband Muhammad Subhan Lone, migrated from Rajpora here in north Kashmir to Rawalpindi in 1947, and left behind a property which includes around17 kanal of land.
After India and Pakistan decided to allow the people of divided Kashmir to meet each other through various checkpoints, including Uri, Zareena Lone from Rawalpindi decided to visit Rajpora. “I was astonished to see the fields which my husband owned before 1947 were grabbed by several of our relatives without our knowledge. We were expecting that Custodian Department will have taken over our property and it will be returned to us, but the callous attitude of the Department has disappointed us,” Zareena told Greater Kashmir.
She alleged that the Department doesn’t even maintain the proper land records.
After several visits, Zareena was able to obtain the old data from the Muhafiz Khana. Her relentless efforts to get the land vacated from the illegal occupants so far have not yielded any results.
The Deputy Commissioner Baramulla on October 22, 2011, issued an order no. DCB/PS/PS/3652-53 directing officials to get a portion of Subhan Lone’s land in Kandi belt vacated from “illegal occupants.” However, stiff resistance offered by the occupants forced the officials to return. "It is my third visit here, I have spent around Rs 7 lakh (Pakistani currency) and my only aim is to get the land back. Let the land remain in Government possession but in no way I will allow the land grabbers to snatch this property," said Zareena.
"My husband who is more than 90 years of age is emotionally attached with the land as he believes it is sacred for him,” said Zareena.
