Dear Editor,
 This refers to the problems faced by Jammu Muslims. Despite the fact that a Muslim from Jammu is at present our CM, the Muslims of Jammu continue to be discriminated. The Muslim majority areas of Jammu region are the poorest in the state. Muslim inhabited areas even in the Jammu city are practically without civic amenities. A large number of Muslims started settling in Sunjwan Bathindi and areas across Jammu bypass in early nineties. They received attention when Dr. Farooq Abdullah and other Muslim politicians constructed their houses at Bathendi. However, when coalition government led by Mufti Muhammad Syed came to power in 2003, he penalized the whole area for settling scores with Dr. Farooq. The PDP led government ignored the area and diverted funds. People of valley should compel the government to work for advancement of Jammu Muslims.
