Taking strong notice of the dismantling of houses of Muslim families in several areas of Jammu under the garb of anti-encroachment drive, the Chairperson Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) Aasiyeh Andrabi on Saturday appealed the pro-freedom leadership to devise a programme in this regard. She also appealed the people to stand with their Muslim brethren in this hour of need.
In a statement, Aasiyeh while taking notice of the government direction to officers that there is an immediate need to start anti-encroachment drives for retrieval of land in several areas of Jammu said the main motive of this so-called anti-encroachment drive is to change the demography of the State by dismantling the houses of Muslim families and settling the non-state subjects in these areas.
She said the Muslim families of these areas have been living there legally from last several decades after purchasing the land. She also questioned as to why only Muslim-majority areas are being targeted that too at this time saying this all is carried out under a well-planned conspiracy.
"Why weren't these encroachment drives carried all these years. Why at this time? The government itself had acknowledged and approved these Muslim-majority belts. Now, can these cruel authorities tell where would these families go after the demolition drive? This is a sheer injustice on part of this anti-people and communal government of PDP-BJP which is fulfilling its (RSS) agenda of changing the Muslim-majority status of the State under the garb of this so-called anti-encroachment drive which is actually an anti-Muslim drive," she said.
"These agents of RSS must bear in mind that Jammu Kashmir is not India where they can do whatever they like with Muslims but is a Muslim-majority State. Also, they must not live in a fool's paradise that they can repeat the 1947 genocide of Muslims. The whole Kashmir is with their Muslim brethren of Jammu," she said.
Andrabi said the so-called administration had succumbed to public pressure after the killing of a youth Mohammad Yaqoub by forces in February earlier this year but now they have resumed their anti-Muslim conspiracies.
Aasiyeh Andrabi appealed the pro-freedom leadership to devise a strategy to counter such sinister plans of RSS-backed PDP-BJP government and take measures to prevent the aggression against the Muslim-majority status of the State of Jammu Kashmir.
She also appealed the people of the Valley to stand with their Muslim brethren during such hard times when the cries of Azadi are already reverberating across the nook and corner of Jammu Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) chief castigated the forces for killing a youth Waseem Ahmad at Nadihal, Rafiabad on Friday saying the forces haven't yet quenched their thirst for killing. She expressed solidarity with the bereaved family.
