Jammu: 10-02-18: National Secular Forum held strong protest demonstration in Jammu today under the leadership of its Chief, Dr. Vikas Sharma against militant attack on Army Camp in the outskirts of Jammu at Sunjawan in the bee hours today and vociferously condemned the cowardly attempt of Pakistan to vitiate peaceful atmosphere in Jammu division.
While addressing the protesters Dr Vikas Sharma alleged that seventy years old appeasement policy adopted towards Kashmir on the analogy of successive Congress governments by the centre has been ultimately responsible for total chaos and confusion in the security scenario with BJP government obliquely seems to be at a loss to understand as how to treat the malice of deep rooted militancy in J&K state.
He said that now abrupt rise of militancy in the state after 2014 during BJP regime has been causing great resentment amongst the people of the country in general and that of the state in particular with central government showing its inability to defend the nation despite availability of most capable and competent Indian Army. Flaying the Indian Defence Minister for her studied silence for demoralizing the security forces due to her involvement in allowing CM of the state, Mehbooba Mufti to file FIR against Army and its officer in Shopian few days ago for opening fire on the stone pelters as alleged by the latter in the state assembly.
Dr. Vikas Sharma said that a well thought out conspiracy is under way to surround Jammu city with the illegal settlement of Rohingyas and people of a particular community from the valley ostensibly to provide shelter to militants in Jammu areas on the pattern of valley. Today’s attack on the Army camp at Sunjawan seems to be aftermath of such a sinister conspiracy of successive state governments in which now BJP is too involved and that is why militant outfits have started their ugly heads in this peaceful part of the state, which is matter of a very serious nature, Dr. Vikas bemoaned.
He sounded that the time has come for all the nationalistic forces to come together on one platform risinging above their party considerations and make serious result-oriented efforts to foil the nefarious designs of black sheeps in political parties either in the state or centre who are hell bent to annihilate the whole J&K state considered to be the crown of India.
Supporting the demand of protesters who raised slogan for dethroning the BJP PDP government forthwith, Dr Vikas Sharma fervently demanded that let good sense prevail on the wisdom of BJP government headed by Narinder Modi and withdraw its support from PDP party paving ways for putting state under Governor rule with a strong headed person of impeccable capability by replacing the present incumbent who has turned a dead wood with the passage of time, he added.
Among those, who participated in the protest, included, Dr Sukhdev Singh, Papinder Singh, Govind, Rishikesh Rana, Manmohan Singh, Akash Sharma, Pardeep Sharma, Istaq Naik, Rahul Sharma, Anshu Sharma, Rakesh Slathia, Sheetal Slathia, Arun Manhas Amit Kumar, Deepak Khajuria, Mohit Singh, and others.
