Jammu, October 18 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, strongly condemning the display of weapons by the activists of extremist Hindu organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Jammu, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that the Muslim community is being harassed and forced to chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ slogan.

An APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said the RSS is preparing the ground for a large-scale destruction on the pattern of 1947-like genocide in Jammu.

He said that a well-hatched conspiracy was afoot to create a wave of racism and hatred against the Muslim community in Jammu. “But the people of Jammu and Kashmir are united and organised, and such conspiracies will not be allowed to succeed,” he added.

“Nobody can display even licensed weapons in public places, and specifically when situations are sensitive and when there is threat to peace or the intention is to intimidate or harass people on the basis of religion, faith, sect and community”, the spokesman pointed out while referring to the Arms Act.

However, he said, it is very unfortunate that laws and regulations are applicable only to harass and suppress Muslims, while the RSS enjoys a free hand to display arms, harass other communities and force them to chant ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.

The spokesman lashed out at the puppet administration for openly favouring the aggressive policy of the RSS.

Assuring Jammu Muslims of full moral support, the spokesman said that they should not feel lonely and added that nobody would be allowed to repeat a 1947-like saga. In his appeal to the global community, he urged it to take serious notice of the activities of the fascist forces, which were directly a threat to Muslim and other communities in Jammu and Kashmir.

On the other hand, Hurriyat leader, Javaid Ahmed Mir, addressing a gathering in Srinagar condemned the puppet authorities for allowing the RSS activists to brandish weapons in Jammu, causing harassment to the Muslims. He deplored that on one hand, killings and other atrocities by Indian troops and braid-chopping incidents were going unabated while on the other the puppet administration was allowing the RSS goons to brandish weapons. He said that such tactics could not suppress the Kashmiris’ liberation sentiment and they would continue their freedom struggle at all costs.
