Kishtwar, July 23: In the wake of PDP's attempt to galvanize support to hold protest against government for allegedly arming the RSS cadre under the garb of Village Defence Committees (VDCs), Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar on Tuesday issued an order restricting political activities in Kishtwar town on Friday.
The order issued by DC Kishtwar, Angrez Singh, reads: "It has been observed during the recent incidents that some political leaders and concerned for their vested interests try to take advantage of the huge gathering after Friday prayers thereby imitating large scale demonstration in Kishtwar town. Such gatherings have time and again been highly sensitive to invoke communal tension leading to law and order problem in the district.
"Such activities headed by political leaders are adding chaos, disturbing peace and tranquillity among general public and such political activities need to be kept under control in order to maintain law and order situation in Kishtwar town and its adjoining areas."
The order came five days after PDP attempted to use the Friday prayers to garner support for the protest against state government, district administration and police over installation of security bunkers and strengthening of VDCs.
The PDP held a protest at bus stand Kishtwar on last Friday after the prayers following which former PDP legislator Firdous Ahmed Tak, PDP Youth President Wasil Doolwal and others were booked by Kishtwar police in FIR No. 163/2019 U/S 120-B & 153-A RPC for communal speeches, creating unrest against the government that can cause disturbance to the peace and tranquillity in the area.
Following the registration of FIR, the PDP stated that they will not seek bail for the leaders booked by Kishtwar police and also challenged the police to arrest the booked leaders. On Monday the party members also held a protest outside police station Kishtwar demanding withdrawal of FIR against the party leaders.
"Keeping in view such activities, DM Kishtwar under section 144 CrPc directed all the political leaders and concerned to restrict themselves from performing any political activity after Friday prayers in Kishtwar town and this order shall come into effect as such and will remain enforce till further orders," the order concludes.
