After becoming irrelevant in Jammu, NC talks about protecting Hindu shrines, temples
1/23/2021 11:44:35 PM
jammu, Jan 23: After becoming irrelevant in Jammu region, National Conference, has raised the bogey of ordinance for management and regulation of Hindu shrines and temples.
"We urge the Centre, as also Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to facilitate the implementation of the bill, brought twice by the National Conference in the Legislative Assembly but could not get passage due to inherent contradictions of several political parties", Provincial Vice-President Anil Dhar told reporters here.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "The NC seeking an ordinance for management of Hindu shrines and temples is an attempt to strike a chord with the members of the Hindu community. The NC seems to have realized that joining hands with parties like Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has not helped its cause and it will have to revive its secular credentials for its survival."
The analyst said, "When the NC was in power it could have easily got the bill for protection of the Hindu shrines passed during its tenure but the NC leaders just offered lip service to the members of the Hindu community and failed to do anything practically. They made no serious attempt to come up with a law that could have protected the Hindu shrines and temples."
He said, "Now, these leaders have realized that they cannot ignore the voters in Jammu region as they will play an important role after the delimitation exercise is completed and the assembly elections are held in J&K."
It's in place to mention here that after the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1990, the political regimes in J&K failed to take any concrete steps to protect the Hindu shrines and temples. From 1990 to 2018, the NC came into power on three occasions. First in 1996, then in 2002 and again in 2008. "The party which enjoyed three stints of power since the exodus of KPs from the Valley is seeking an ordinance from the LG today to protect the religious places of the members of Kashmiri Pandits. Isn't it strange?" asked an observer.
He said, "The NC should stop playing the politics over the issue of religious places as it cannot hoodwink the people of Jammu anymore. They are aware about the dramas which the NC has staged during the past so many years. Not many people in Jammu will be interested in the mere slogans being raised by the National Conference. "
