Time for PM Modi to intervene in J&K has come: PK
'Save Jammu'

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 19: Panun Kashmir, premier organization of internally-displaced Kashmiri Hindus on Monday, reiterated its age-old demand seeking a four-way split of Jammu & Kashmir, saying such a reorganization of the state alone could defeat the move of separatists in Kashmir to undermine Jammu's identity and personality, help Buddhists of Ladakh preserve their identity, religion and culture and enable internally-displaced Kashmiri Hindus to lead a secure and dignified life in their own land of Vitasta (Jhelum).
"Panun Kashmir (PK) once again reiterates that the only sure way of bringing peace in the state is by reorganizing the state of Jammu and Kashmir and creating a union territory in Kashmir north and east of river Jhelum for the rehabilitation of internally displaced Hindus of Kashmir. Panun Kashmir stands up shoulder to shoulder with all people of Jammu to uphold the national interests and prevent Jammu from becoming a Lebanon-like territory," PK leaders Ajay Chrungoo and Agnishekhar said here today while addressing a press conference.
PK leaders reflected in detail on the ongoing changes in the Jammu's demography and warned that if this process was not checked immediately, situation in Jammu will turn like Lebanon-like and the minorities would be the victims of separatists who are leaving no stone unturned to create a Kashmir-like situation in the winter capital of the state, Jammu.
What made the PK leaders to say what they said was the manner in which illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Myanmar had been settled and being settled at strategic locations in Jammu as well as along national highway and High hills across the River Tawi. They warned New Delhi that the settlement of illegal immigrants in Jammu and the manner in which they are being provided with all facilities, including water and electric connections - apart from Voter ID cards, Aadhaar Cards, Ration Cards - have the potential of destabilizing Jammu, changing its demography and endangering national security.
Warning the Government of India about the "sinister" efforts to convert Jammu into a Lebanon like area, PK leaders said: "The demographic invasion into Jammu is neither a myth nor an exaggeration. It has to be remembered that extremist elements in Lebanon got a decisive impetus after the settlement of refugees from foreign lands. A similar effort is afoot in Jammu by settling illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and Burma".
The Government of India has squarely failed in preventing Kashmir from transforming into a one-community-controlled domain, PK leaders said, adding that "If the top most leaders in the ruling party in the state recognize and revere pro-Pakistan Ali Shah Geelani as the 'tallest leader of Kashmir' and seek opening of routes with Central Asia as a way of bringing peace, it only signifies the stranglehold of radical elements on the polity".
PK leaders also tore into the Union Government's policy towards stone pelters and asserted that the policy had failed to produce the desired results. The policy has, in fact, boomeranged they asserted.
"The failure of the measures like rehabilitation of terrorists and release of stone pelters is glaringly manifest on the ground in the valley. The daily disruption of security operations against the terrorists by stone pelting mobs to ensure escape of terrorists is a testimony of this failure. Intriguingly, the Government of India continues to wear the blindness caused by its untested premises and false assumptions".
PK leaders also warned the Union Government that the situation in the state was grim and that if it continued to behave like it had been behaving, the nation would suffer a grievous injury.
"Panun Kashmir once again urges the Government of India to recognize that a separatist war, open as well as stealth, is going on in the state. Time is running out to realize the grim reality that enemies not only of our nation but of democracy, coexistence and equality as universal values of the modern world have entrenched themselves into our body polity. These forces are using the very freedoms which the Constitution of India guarantees to destroy coexistence, democracy and equality in this nation. It is time to rise as a nation to put a decisive halt to the processes converting democracy and secularism as sanctuaries of separatism," PK leaders said.
PK leaders also expressed grave concern over the directions of the state government to revenue and police officials not to disturb and dislocate members of the tribal community and allow them to smuggle bovines, who have illegally occupied forest and state land in Jammu, saying these directions were tantamount to negation of CrPC, Ranbir Penal Code, Section 188 and Animal Cruelty Act.
The major refrain of the PK leaders was that Jammu was in danger and the time had come for PM Narendra Modi to intervene so that Jammu didn't go the Kashmir way and become Lebanon-like.
