JKSAC pays rich tributes to martyrs of 1947
10/22/2021 10:13:09 PM

JAMMU, Oct 22: Jammu Kashmir Sharnarthi Action Committee (JKSAC) in a brief meeting of the executive members of Tehsils Jammu and RS Pura held at Rohi Morh Jammu paid rich tributes to over 40,000 martyrs who sacrificed their lives at the hands of tribals supported by Pakistani regular army.
These martyrs have been forgotten by various dispensations of the state and country and it is highly unfortunate that they were not given any place in the present history of the country.
While speaking in the meeting Gurdev Singh along with Netar Parkash, Dwarka Nath Khajuria and Santosh Kumar said that 22nd October 1947 is an unforgettable day for DPs and is being observed as Black Day when thousand of Hindus and Sikhs were thrown out forcibly by tribals who slaughtered over 40,000 people of all ages. The women were raped, abducted and ravished in front of their relations and their properties of millions of rupees were looted and destroyed.
He said that it was the worst kind of genocide which has ever been witnessed in the present history of the world.
They further said that the sacrificed made by these martyrs delayed the advance of tribals and Pakistani army and saved Jammu & Kashmir, but unfortunately their sacrifices went unnoticed by all the previous dispensation of state and centre.
They were not given justice in one of the biggest democratic country of the world till date despite of their consistent struggle since 1967. They reiterated that DPs are thankful to PM Modi for providing relief package to each DP family, which provided some balm on their bleeding wounds.
They said that this little relief provided to DPs does not match with their loss of lives and properties in any way. The JKSAC leaders reminded the govt that DPs’ seven decade old legitimate settlement problem cannot be considered as fully resolved until and unless adequate compensation in shape of ex-gratia relief as per JPC Report No 183 is not paid for their loss of left-out properties including other components.
They appealed to GOI as well as state govt. to declare this day as National Martyrs Day and be declared holiday. The participants also appealed to Lt Governor to expedite the process of disbursement for the remaining beneficiaries and stress upon the MHA to release the funds, and also appealed to seriously take cognizance of DPs’ problems and prepare roadmap accordingly to resolve the same.
