Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 20: Former BJP-made J&K CM and "sinking ship" PDP's president, Mehbooba Mufti, is turning more and more radical with each passing moment. On Sunday, she crossed all the lines and urged J&K Governor SP Malik to implement her illegal February 14, 2018 orders issued to the Divisional Commissioner Jammu, Deputy Commissioners of Kathua, Samba, Jammu and Udhampur and Inspector General of Police Jammu, which allowed members of the tribal communities to occupy the forest/state land in Jammu and also encouraged bovine smuggling and cow killing.
She urged the J&K Governor to implement her orders to which the BJP was also a party while addressing press conference in Srinagar. Her target was the newly-founded IkkJutt Jammu, which has been spearheading a movement aimed at getting vacated the illegally occupied state and forest lands as well as river beds and Jammu's mountains. Attacking IkkJutt Jammu and its leaders, she termed them fanatics and against the minority communities in Jammu.
"The Muslims of Jammu are being openly threatened with situations like the partition by senior members of extremist and communally motivated campaign as 'IkkJuttJammu Maha Adhiveshan (The Save Jammu Crusade)' are being organized that reportedly talked about dangers posed to the people of Jammu from the growth of Muslim colonies in and around Jammu, and how it is a concerted effort to change its demography. These are reflective of the mindset of the perpetrators of such bigotry," she said, adding that non-implementation of the February 14, 2018 orders was a conspiracy.
Her plea to the J&K Governor was: Governor's administration must take immediate steps so that her orders were implemented and those who illegally occupied the state and forest lands in Jammu were not evicted or relocated. She also warned the government that "giving a communal design is like playing with fire in an already politically fragile state", that "any tinkering with the minorities in Jammu will have a cascading effect in Kashmir and the situation can go out of control" and that the Governor's administration must therefore be cautious in dealing with the matter".
In other words, she asked the Governor to create a situation in which the provisions of CRPC, RPC, Land Revenue Act and other penal laws of the criminal justice system will not be invoked to protect the state and forest land from the encroachers.
