Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party Sunday held a protest against the settlement of Rohingya and Bangladeshi Muslims in Jammu, alleging that it was a conspiracy to reduce Dogras to minority by engineering demographic change.
Led by the party chairperson Harsh Dev Singh, the activists wore black gowns printed with slogans like Quit Jammu Rohingyas-Bangladeshis as they staged a demonstration against the state government for the settlement in Jammu, the home of Dogra population.
It is conspiracy to reduce Dogra population to minority in their bastion Jammu by engineering demographic changes, Singh told reporters.
He claimed that the ingression and unlawful settlement of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis in Jammu is a grave threat to the cultural, historical and religious identity of Dogras.
The party staged a vigorous protest demonstration seeking the Muslims immediate repatriation to their native countries.
Earlier, thousands of Tibetan Muslim refugees who were forced to flee China had also been inhabited by the state government in the colonies located at Idgah, Badamwari and Gulshan Mohalla in Kashmir and Ladakh, Singh said.
