JAIL BHARO AANDOLAN & CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE(AMARNATH LAND ROW)

A large number of children turned out to offer themselves for court arrest as it was their day fixed by the Samiti. Though officially police didn’t record the arrest of minor boys and girls, some of whom had come to the police stations with nipple and milk bottles in their mouth carried by their mothers in their lap and shoulders, they managed to gain entry inside the police station.

 

According to a rough estimate, more than three lakh people including men, women, youths and children took to the streets chanting ‘Hum Sab Bache Kahaan Chale, Chote Bache Kahaan Chale, Yeh Baal Gopal Kahaan Chale, Yeh Deewane Kahaan Chale, Jail Chale Bhai Jail Chale’, ‘Bum Bum Bhole’, ‘Sooli Khud Ko Taang Rahe Hain, Apna Haq Maang Rahe Hain’, ‘NN Vohra, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti Hai Hai’

 

There was no area left in majority parts of the region including Cities, towns, semi-urban, rural and remote areas from where men, women, youths and children in large number were not seen heading towards police stations and temporary jails”, an Intelligence official remarked, admitting that the number of people, offering arrests, was clearly beyond their imagination

 

A number of Sikhs, Muslims including Gujjars, Christians and other minorities also joined the agitation, which has now taken the shape of a mass movement, and offered themselves for the court arrests. A Gujjar leader Fazal Din declared that entire Kashmir was the property of Maharaja Gulab Singh and Dr Karan Singh and his son Ajatshatru Singh should act to restore the land to SASB.

 

The Sangarsh Samiti has called upon the people of Jammu for civil disobedience against the State Government by way of not paying VAT, Token Tax, electricity, water tariff and Passenger Tax from today. To protest the criminal silence of Union Government, the Samiti has also given a call for taking out a funeral procession of Central Government tomorrow in protest against its criminal silence over the incidents of violence against the various sections of Hindus in Kashmir including students, transporters, labourers, Judges and burning of national flag by secessionist elements.
