In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, India has started evicted Kashmiri Muslims from their ancestral property by claiming that these prop-erties had been once used by the Kashmiri Pandits.
Deputy Commissioner Islamabad, Dr Piyush Singla has admitted that 22 evictions have been carried out even as nine ‘Lagan’ notices have been issued while 10 demarcations have also been com-pleted, so far, in Islamabad district alone.
The DC said the district administration has taken various steps to carry out the drive even on complaints filed by the Pandits online or offline.H
e said the officers of revenue and other de-partments concerned have been given clear direc-tions to act with “zeal and commitment” to address the grievances concerning the land and property of the ‘migrants’.
“Redressal of the complaints as per law and in a time bound manner is being emphasised upon the most”, he added.
The DC said that the relevant provisions of law are being followed in letter and spirit and the ad-ministration is ensuring the genuine rights of mi-grants in different categories are duly protected.
Srinagar-based experts believe that Modi regime is using Kashmiri Pandits as an excuse to snatch the land of Kashmiri Muslims in a bid to demographi-cally change the Muslim status of Jammu and Kashmir.—KMS
