BHIM SINGH FAST UNTO DEATH
Parveen Kumar, advocate
Professor Bhim Singh Chairman of Jammu Kashmir National Panthers Party is sitting on on Fast Unto Death in Jammu demanding restoration of land to Shri Amarnath Shrine Board and communal harmony. He described the formation of committee for dialogue as a hoax with the people of Jammu and regrets that Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh has also been misled about the existing and prevalent ground situation in Jammu province created because of most popular uprising of people of Jammu.
He impressed upon people to boycott all party delegation and the committee constituted by the Governor NN Vohra. Prof. Bhim Singh said that all discrimination against the people of Jammu must end now or never. The Kashmiri Muslim fraternity is not against Shri Amarnath Yatra nor they are against diversion of land in question to Shri Amarnath Shrine if the proprietary right on the land is kept intact with the state government, forest department. The Governor should have invited Muslim religious leader like Mufti-e-Azam and sought their opinion instead of imposing curfew in the Dogra Land.
The Prime minister on the other hand convened a meeting of such leaders as who were not even apprised of geography of Jammu while ignoring the true representatives of Jammu.
Mr. Bhim singh declared that his fast unto death shall continue till the aspirations of the people of jammu province are met. Hundreds of people,intectualls, lawyers, artists, academicians and religious personalities have visited fasting Panthers party Chairman and expressed full support and solidarity with his mission and agenda. This is in fact struggle for protection of Human rights of the people of Jammu.
