The minority community of Kishtwar has termed the communal riots of Kishtwar as part of the conspiracy during an interaction with Jammu Province Peoples Forum (JPPF). A conspiracy to force another mass exodus of the minority community from areas of Kishtwar, Bhaderwah and Doda, as the anti national forces could not succeed and failed to do so, like the communal riots of 1993, 1998, 2003 and 2008.
This perhaps is being done by S.I.T, Police and Civil administration of Kishtwar who are engaged in solving murder cases and other riots, loot during communal clashes organized by anti-national elements during Eid celebration on 9th August 2013.
Whereas Civil Society, Political parties and a delegation of JPPF visited Kishtwar to defuse the tension between the two communities. They did their best of bring them closer for maintaining communal harmony and brotherhood as it seems that anti-minority policy of Kashmir centric State Government is coming in between, which is bound to accelerate the communal hatred.
The atrocities and brutalities on the youth in the hands of S.I.T Police and civil administration bears definite nod of the State Government. Retaliating minority community observed Bandh in Kishtwar on 4th Oct 2013, shops and business
establishments remained closed throughout the day.
It is alleged that the CBM required to bring back normalcy are being ignored deliberately. The voice of minority is being suppressed and even the agreed demands are being delayed on one pretext or the other, with this result that the ditch between the communities is widening, which was engineered by the Home Minister of the Kashmir centric Government, who was compelled to resign.
JPPF immediately wants the transfer of D.I.G and the Dy SP. Interim relief of Rs. 2 lakhs be disbursed to the sufferers to re-establish lost faith of the minority community, which is demanding a probe by CBI in the whole episode so that the same does not happen again after another spell of time.
Others present in the meeting were Inderjeet Khajuria, Amrit Magotra, Prof. Devender Sharma, Kr. Naryan Singh, Gajan Singh Khajuria, Avinash Bhatia, M.L Sharma, Gajan Singh Khalsa, R.L Tandon, Sunita Sharma, Rajesh Chandan, R.P Singh Slathia, Ram Pal and Rajiv Mahajan, State President (Shri Ram Sena).
