JAMMU: IkkJutt Jammu here on Thursday stated that a sinister demographic war on Jammu province was unleashed immediately after the total religious cleansing of Hindus in Kashmir in 1990. The demographic assault was spearheaded by the secular Muslim leaders of mainstream political parties including National Conference, Congress and the leadership of People’s Democratic Party.
In a presser, Chairman IkkJutt Jammu, Ankur Sharma said, “To be specific, Farooq Abdullah and Ghulam Nabi Azad led the demographic war on Jammu from the front by illegally occupying the forest lands in Bhatindi and building their houses on these lands.”
He said that the frontline Muslim leaders of Congress, National Conference and PDP ensured that the demographic assault on Jammu becomes a state sponsored project. He also released the findings of IkkJutt Jammu Commission on Demographic Change.
Sharma said, “The demographic assault to convert Jammu province into a Muslim majority province has a clear cut objective of the genocidal destabilization of Hindus living in Jammu province. Hindu majority city has already been encircled by creation of Muslim colonies and settlements and building residential accommodations.”
He claimed that the Commission has found out that around 100000 residential houses and accommodations have been built in and around Jammu city since 1990.
“50 lakh Kanals of government land has been encroached upon in the Jammu province, particularly on the stretch extending from Jammu city to Lakhanpur. Government admits that 25 lakh Kanals of Government land has been encroached,” Sharma said.
He claimed that more than 100 mosques have been built in and around Jammu city where there were only three mosques in the year 1994.
Ankur said that the overwhelmingly Muslim areas which constitute the demographic encroachment include Bhatindi, Narwal, Sunjwan, Kaluchak, Peer Baba Mohalla, Poonchi Mohalla, Channi Rama, Channi Himmat, Raika, Sidhra, Rangoora, Khanpur, Nagrota, Gujjar Mohalla, Qasim Nagar on both sides of newly built NH 44 Bypass and other areas. “Majority of these areas have the Muslim population of more than 80 per cent.”
