Senior APHC leaders Muhammad Yousuf Naqash, Chairman Islamic political party and Hakeem Abdul Rashid President Muslim Democratic League while addressing a large gathering at Saidapora Sangam protested against the burning of banner bearing Quranic Verses and expressed their deep concern and condemnation over the communal tension that erupted in Rajouri Jammu after a fanatic Hindu group burnt the flags bearing the sacred Quranic verses. The leaders also condemned the statement of so-called Deputy Chief Minister in the backdrop of this ugly incident whereby he said that the culprits involved in the incidents can’t be arrested.The statement reads that while strongly condemning the burning of banner bearing Quranic verses in Rajouri Naqash said that this shameful and cowardly act by communal Hindu zealots has hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims and is intolerable.
The mischief mongers did this to flare up communal riots and divide and is the part of conspiracies hatched for displacement and persecution of Jammu Muslims on the direction of Anti Islam and Muslim organizations particularly R S S and smells yet another attempt of genocide of Jammu Muslims like that of 1947 when 5 lakh Muslims in Jammu were brutally massacred by communal Dogra and Indian forces to change the demography and majority status of Muslims in Jammu region. The unabated oppression of Muslim majority in Jammu Kashmir is a well planned conspiracy to reduce them to minority and strengthen the illegal and forced occupation of India.
“In order to serve its nefarious intentions India has been inciting varying issues and provocations since 1947 to curb the sentiment of freedom and neutralize the ongoing freedom movement by engaging and trapping them in incitements and provocations in order to divert their attention from mission freedom,” Naqash added.Hakeem Abdul Rashid said that such incidents were not the first of its kind in Jammu, adding, in 1947 the then autocracy rulers had presided over the genocide of over 5 lakh Muslims to change the demographic status of Jammu from the Muslim majority to minority. He said the religious aspiration and emotions were hurt by this incident done under a conspiracy.“Burning of flag with Quranic verses written on it in Rajouri is neither any coincidence and nor does this occur due to the ignorance of the miscreants but it is part of a well thought plan and its only purpose is to hurt the Muslim sentiments and create the communal tension in the region,” Hakeem added.They said the Muslims of Jammu are not alone in this juncture of time, adding, not only the Kashmiri Muslims but the whole Mulsim Ummah stands with the oppressed Jammu Muslims.
