ISK seeks CM’s intervention
Shots Letter To Omar
Srinagar, Oct 26: The Islamic School Kargil on Friday urged the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to help the minority community in Zanskar alleging that the members of majority community had “unleashed terror in the area”.
The President ISK has shot a letter to Omar stating: “When the news of conversions spread in the region, communal tension between two communities erupted.”
“The newly converted youth along with their family members took refuge in Jamia Masjid Padum, Zanskar for almost one month due to threat to their life. Due to communal tension, reaction in Kargil was about to take place which was prevented by the ISK.”
“The converted families tried to settle back to their respective homes to live a normal life but once again they were beaten severely,” the letter adds.
The ISK, according to the letter, has appealed to the Chief Minister to take immediate cognizance of “Zanskar Conversion Issue”. “We request you to provide security to the life and property of the converted families and the members of minority community in Zanskar,” the letter reads.
The letter requests the Chief Minister to rehabilitate the converted families in their respective homes with a security guard at their residence till the normalcy is restored.
The letter urges the Chief Minister to punish the culprits as per law within a week’s time. “We request you to take an administrative action against SDM Zanskar for his biased attitude against Muslims,” it reads.
