Amarnath land row

Nationalist’s v/s secularists
Jammu & Kashmir is boiling from last 2 months over Amarnath land row. The processions
in Kashmir valley
was led by Hurriat.The moderate faction led by Moulvi Omar and Hardliner Group led by Geelani,
sorted out their ego differences and pressurized the Azad led Congress-PDP coalition Government
to revoke the transfer of 100 acres of land to Sri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB).
The real reason cited by
the Hurriyat was that Indian Govt. is trying to make a permanent settlement colony for
Indians as Israel have made in Gaza strip in
Palestine. However Fact is that Baltal is at the height of 2700 meters above sea level,
with extreme cold climate and thereby not fit for Any Logical human settlement.Anyway, SASB used
to occupy around 300 acres of land every year for two months, and It was absolutely fine with
The Muslim leadership in Kashmir. However the fact is the terrorists backed by Pakistan and
funded by middle east don’t want Hindus to be present anywhere in Kashmir and that explains why
4lakh kashmiri pandits were forced to leave Kashmir valley in early 1990.
Jammu and Kashmir is one state, but not many people outside the state know that Muslims can come to Jammu
and buy properties and make houses in Jammu, but not a Single Hindu from Jammu region dares
to buy properties or make a house in Kashmir, This fact certainly makes one think who is really communal
and real threat to India as a country. Why is it that a Muslim from Kashmir can work and
do business anywhere in India and not a single Indian can do business and live in Kashmir.
The magnitude of protests which we have witnessed in Jammu was previously unknown. People of
Jammu have been victims of whims of Muslim leadership of Kashmir.Jammu, also known as city of temples
has been always very kind to refugees whether refugees from Pakistan in 1947-48 or Refugees from
Kashmir, popularly known as Kashmiri pandits.One more thing is common between the refugees of
Jammu and the similarity is that both have been victims because of being Hindus.
Our central leadership is certainly under doubt, as they could not handle the J&K situation
in a dynamic way partly because of their inclination towards the Muslim leaders of Kashmir.
Omar Abdullah was applauded for his passionate speech in parliament, and I felt pity for my country
and countrymen. He confessed of being an Indian and a Muslim but at the end said” hum apne zameen
ki hifazat kar rahe the” referring to Amarnath land row. Nobody bothered to ask him that
“how is it possible for an Indian to guard his land from fellow Indian?” Which land was being protected?
and from Whom? Musharaf recently said”Kashmir pakistan ki ragoon me doodtha hai” meaning Kashmir
runs in Pakistanis blood, but our leadership is so weak and vote oriented that till now, not a single
leader has said anything positive about Kashmir. Recently one of my friend said
‘secularism is a tool to wipe out Hindus from India” and I agree with him. Does Kashmir runs
in Blood of India is a big question. and an important one…There is no word as “secularism”,
There is only one word” Nationalism” “Indian Nationalism”…Nothing matters but India..
Happy Independence day…

suicide by a patriotic….and his last poem(amarnath issue)

JAMMU, July 23: A youth taking part in the chain hunger strike against cancellation of forest land to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) today sacrificed his life after consuming poison in protest against the remarks of National Conference chief, Omar Abdullah in Parliament yesterday that the land to Amarnath shrine Board will be returned only over dead bodies of the Kashmiris.

Following death of the youth, the activists of Sangarsh Samiti and other organisations went on a rampage in the City pelting stones on moving vehicles and enforcing a bandh in some City areas. The mob also ransacked mortuary of Government Medical College, Jammu and twice lifted body of the martyr to shift it to the venue of dharna. The Samiti has given a call for Jammu bandh tomorrow. The Bar Association Jammu has also called for a bandh tomorrow.

Identified as Kuldeep Kumar Dogra of Talab Tillo, the youth who joined the hunger strike launched by the Sangarsh Samiti in front of Brahman Sabha this afternoon fell unconscious while delivering a speech in protest against Omar Abdullah’s statement this afternoon.

Commenting on Omar’s remarks, the youth said that NC chief had stated in Lok Sabha yesterday that Kashmiris will die instead of transferring the land to SASB and “I would show Mr Abdullah how the people of Jammu too can sacrifice their lives to get back the land”.

Soon after his remarks, the youth fell unconscious and was taken to GMC hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. As the news of youth’s sacrifice spread, a large number of people took to streets in the city and its outskirts and resorted to road blockades. The shopkeepers in many areas including Talab Tillo and Bohri downed their shutters.

The protesting youth with banners in their hands also shouted slogans against Mr Abdullah and held him responsible for the incident.

They demonstrated in Parade Ground near the venue of hunger strike and hundreds of youth reached the GMC hospital from where they forcibly shifted the dead body to Parade Ground where it was kept for paying tributes by the people. The protesting youths also ransacked the mortuary in GMC, tore its records and also broke window panes of newly constructed emergency building in hospital.

However, the body was later shifted by police to the GMC for post-mortem which was conducted by the Board of Doctors constituted by Dr Romesh Gupta, Medical Superintendent, GMC Jammu. The prominent doctors in the Board include Dr Kuldeep Dogra, Dr Ratnakar and Dr Brahm Dutt.

However the protesting youth again took the body to Parade Ground and did not allow its cremation.

After the sacrifice of life by Kuldeep Kumar Dogra, youths fanned out in different parts of the City especially Parade Ground, Jewel Chowk, Talab Tillo and other areas and subjected matadors and other vehicles to heavy stone pelting. Transport in several areas went off the road while shopkeepers downed their shutters voluntarily.

Most parts of the City observed a spontaneous bandh.

Youth also assembled at Bohri, Talab Tillo, Gandhi Nagar, Muthi and Barnai and staged protest and blocked roads. The vehicular traffic also came to a grinding halt on Jammu, Akhnoor road after the activists of Sangarsh Samiti erected barricades on the road.

Sangarsh Samiti chairman Leela Karan Sharma said a suicide note has also been recovered from pocket of the youth which is lying with Bakshi Nagar Police. In this note, the youth was reported to have said that he was making sacrifice for a supreme cause and tributes be paid to him only after the goal of getting land back for the SASB is achieved, he added.

Mr Sharma said all business establishments and transporters will observe a complete bandh tomorrow in protest against callousness of the Government.

In response to a question regarding indefinite bandh, Mr Sharma said he can’t alone take a decision in this regard as it has to be decided by Samiti which is a conglomerate of over 35 organizations.

He said Samiti has the support of all Jammu organizations including some political parties. Even the activists of Congress and NC have also been supporting our struggle, he added.

Mr Sharma said the people have been giving an overwhelming support to the Sangarsh Samiti in its struggle and nine days bandh call. But he didn’t want to add to the problems of those people by giving an indefinite bandh call who didn’t have even ration in their houses, he added.

He said the Samiti has given a call asking the Jammuites to join the present struggle irrespective of their caste, creed and religion.

Leela Karan, while lambasting Omar Abdullah for his remarks on SASB land, said that in case the Kashmiris posses such a feeling towards the Hindu shrines then Jammuites will be forced to evacuate them from Bhatandi and other places in Jammu where they have constructed the posh Kohtis.

Meanwhile, today was the fourth day of the chain hunger strike launched by the Samiti. A conglomeration of 35 political, social and religious organizations, the Samiti had coordinated the nine-day Jammu bandh from June 30 during the agitation’s first phase.

Meanwhile, the chain hunger strike of Sangarsh Samiti in other district and tehsil headquarters of Jammu also continued today.

.Dogra Liberation Front chief, Ram Paul has claimed that the martyr Kuldeep Kumar was its staunch activist.

Hindu Shiv Sena (HSS) has announced Rs 15,000 for the bereaved family. Sena president Krishan Manhas has also appealed the Sangarsh Samiti and other social organizations to make generous donations for the bereaved family.

Some paras of poem recited by Kuldeep Kumar few minutes before his death at Parade are as follow.

“Bigul Baj Raha Hain Andolan Ka Gagan Goonjta Hain Naroon Sai.”

“Mila Rahi Hain Aaj Jammu Ki Miti Nazar Sitaroon Sai.”

“Ek Baat Kehni Hain Laikin Aaj Desh Key Piaroon Sai.”

“Janta Sai, Loogoon Sai, Foojiyoon Ki Khadi Kataroon Sai.”

“Sambal Kai Rehna Apnay Ghar Main Chupay Huyay Gadaroon Sai.”

“Jhank Rahai Hain Apnay Dushman Apnay Hi Devaroon Sai.”

“Sanbal Kai Rehna Apnay Ghar Mian Chupay Huyay Gadaroon Sai.”

“Jago Tumko Dogron Ki Jagir Ki Raksha Karni Hain.”

“Jago Tumko Lakhoon Ki Takdir Ki Raksha Karni Hain.”

Abi Jo Bani Hai Us Tasveer Ki Raksha Karni Hain.’’
