‘Return our land back or be ready to face farmers’ like protest,’ Gujjar-Bakarwal members warn India

Jammu, January 24 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the demolition drive carried out by the local face of Modi-led Indian regime in Roop Nagar area of Jammu region has triggered massive resentment among the Gujjar-Bakarwal community.

The Muslim community members are staging a protest in demanding that their rights be restored. “We have been living in the area prior to 1947 and were allowed by all the regimes to exist peacefully. But the present dispensation has displaced us. For the past 13-days we have been sitting on sit-it (dharna). No one from the administration has come forward to know what we are facing.”

The officials, they complained, have turned their backs towards them and seem least bothered about their plight.

The protesting Gujjar-Bakarwal community members urged the Indian regime to return their land and warned to spread their agitation like farmers protest in case the regime fails to fulfill their demand.
