Srinagar: Syed Ali Geelani Thursday alleged that the right wing RSS was imparting arms training to boys and girls of Jammu region in the Jammu University’s campus. In a statement issued here, the head of a Hurriyat faction said, “The communal and fascist organizations are considering the Jammu region as their conquered territory and they have begun the process of eliminating the Muslims of the area.”
Hurriyat Conference faction cautioned that the Jammu Muslims will not be left “on the mercy of the communal forces and any anti-Muslim activity in the area will trigger a strong reaction in the Kashmir Valley and the people of this region will move to the Jammu and will protect our brethren there at every cost.”
“The RSS and VHP activists have turned the Jammu University into a training center for their activities where they organize different programs to spread the communal hatred and prepare new communal minds,” the statement said while lamenting the administration’s alleged role in facilitating “the suspicious activities of the communal forces and encouraging them in every way.”
“They are free to use the schools, colleges and even universities for their communal acts and the state government is action less to stop them,” the state said fearing that all these activities are the beginning of a genocide plan of the Muslim community and according to this plot the Muslim population at first will be frightened and terrorized and then like 1947 they will be either massacred or forced to migrate from here. But we are not in 1947 and this time we will not remain silent over the communal acts of the RSS and its allied parties and we will stand shoulder to shoulder with our Jammu brethren.”
Geelani’s Hurriyat amalgam has asked the government to reign in the “communal forces” and threatened to launch agitation if the situation was allowed to deteriorate further.
