Rassana under threat, says HEM
Kathua case

Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 19: The Hindu Ekta Manch (HEM), a conglomerate of several socio-religious organizations, which has been spearheading a movement to persuade the powers-that-be in the state and at the centre to hand over the alleged Kathua rape and murder case to the CBI for a fair and transparent investigation into whole issue, on Saturday alleged that Rassana, where the crime allegedly took place in January this year, was under grave threat and that certain undesirable elements want to capture the village and its forest area for conducting anti-India operations.
"Hiranagar area and Rassana are strategically vital for national security. They are under grave threat. They are located near the border.
They had witnessed several terror attacks, including one on the Hiranagar Police Station. Pakistan consistently tries to export terrorists from these border areas. Forces inimical to the national unity want to occupy Rassana and the vast forest area around Rassana by hounding out all the inhabitants from Rassana. Only 65 to 70 people live in Rassana and they all belong to the minority community," said a top HEM leader. He added that the "authorities in the state and security agencies must turn their attention to Rassana so that the evil is nipped in the bud". Significantly, the 5-member Bar Council of India team had also referred to a threat to the Hiranagar's demography. Not only the Bar Council of India's team, the Delhi-based Group of Intellectuals and Academicians (GIA), too, had referred to a danger to Rassana from some undesirable elements.
It would be only desirable if the authorities took cognizance of what the HEM said. Authorities can't afford to allow the undesirables to establish their stranglehold over Hiranagar, Rassana and adjoining areas taking into consideration the vital national interest.
