Geelani's tirade against RSS unwarranted
All refugees are in Jammu

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 19: Kashmiri separatist Syed Ali Shah Geelani, who says day in and day out that "Ham Pakistani Hain, Pakistan Hamara Hai, has unleashed a no-holds-barred misinformation campaign in Kashmir to arouse passions against the RSS and the BJP. He has been saying again and again that the RSS-BJP combine is working for changing the demography of Kashmir.
"After Jammu province, Kashmir is the next target for carrying their bigoted agenda," Geelani on Thursday said in a statement, and added that "Since the inception of the BJP-led regime in Delhi, these forces (RSS-BJP) are hatching conspiracies and turned Jammu into a base station for their communal activities".
Geelani's charge is devious, communally-motivated and designed to create communal tensions in the already communally sensitive state consisting of almost 100 per cent Muslim Kashmir, Hindu-majority Jammu and Buddhist-majority Ladakh. His ridiculous assertion that the RSS-BJP combine wanted to change Kashmir's demography holds no ground.
Actually, it is Kashmir whose demography stands completely changed. It was once 100 per cent Hindu and became almost 100 per cent Muslim in January 1990, when all Kashmiri Hindus, barring a few hundreds, and many Sikhs migrated to Jammu and other places. The process of migration didn't stop even after 1990. Nearly 30,000 Sikhs and 1500 Kashmiri Hindu employees also migrated from Kashmir. Some of them migrated last year in the wake of violent incidents triggered after the killing of Hizb terrorist Burhan Wani.
It is Jammu which has become the house of all victims of fanaticism and two-nation concept. It is Jammu which has been embracing victims of fanaticism since 1947. In 1947, lakhs of Hindus and Sikhs migrated to Jammu from PoJK.
It was also in 1947, thousands of Hindu and Sikh refugees migrated to Jammu from Pakistan. Jammu accommodated lakhs of Kashmiri Hindu refugees in 1990 as well. It is Jammu where scores of colonies and camps have been set up to provide shelter to these victims of fanaticism.
All of them are leading a peaceful life in Jammu ever since their migration, with the local population extending them full support.
Which demographic change Geelani and others of his ilk talk about? They do not talk about Uighur Muslims from China, who were settled in Srinagar in 1952 by Sheikh Abdullah.
They do not talk about Tibetan Muslims, who were settled by Bakshi Ghulam Mohammad in the same locality in Srinagar where Uighur Muslims were settled. But more than that, neither Geelani nor any other Kashmiri separatist or mainstream leader ever questioned the illegal settlement of thousands of Bangladeshi and Rohingya Muslims in Jammu and Samba districts. Contrarily, they term refugees from Pakistan foreigners and ask them to quit Jammu; they oppose the return to Kashmir of the original inhabitants - Kashmiri Hindus.
They must stop the misinformation campaign. The world knows the truth.
