Security situation in state first reverting to early nineties: Harsh

Concerned over the growing militancy in the state as also the revocation of PSA on the perpetrator detained for desecrating revered Aap Shambhu Temple in Jammu, a battalion of Panther activists spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP, Balwant Singh Mankotia, State President and other leaders staged a protest at Exhibition Ground here today seeking strengthening of intelligence network besides invocation of PSA on the accused and other conspirators of heinous crime who vitiated the peaceful atmosphere of Jammu region. Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman JKNPP while speaking to the media recalled that the profane act of blasphemy and desecration at Aap Shambhu Temple in Roop Nagar Jammu on June 14th, 2016 had severely hurt the sentiments of the people of Jammu Pradesh.
He said that similar sacrilegious act was committed at Nanak Nagar Shiv temple by a felon under a deep rooted conspiracy hatched by the anti-social forces who were hell bent to flare up communal passions by disturbing the secular fabric of Jammu region and to scuttle the scheduled holy pilgrimages like Amarnath Yatra.
Singh revealed that the District administration taking the cognizance of public fury and ferocity of turbulence slapped PSA on both the accused subsequently but expressed his anguish over the revocation of the act on Yasir Alfaz by irrationally declaring him insane and deranged. He wondered that how could state government dub him ‘lunatic’ without any conclusive evidence that the accused was suffering from any form of mental disorder till date. He further revealed that the miscreant reportedly boarded the auto rickshaw from Roop Nagar and drove to Aap Shambhu Temple to commit the desecration and had no precedents of self or family abuse or ferocious symptoms which defied the theory of psychiatric problem. Singh further expressed grave concern over the growing militancy in the state which had recently claimed eight more lives besides injuries to several others. He regretted that the situation was fast reverting to nineties and attributed the same to soft approach of the BJP – PDP coalition towards separatists and anti nationals.
Balwant Singh Mankotia, while flaying the political incompetence of the BJP, deplored that rather than raking up genuine and legitimate issues of the public, the Saffron MLAs indulged in ridiculous clamouring inside the legislature over their salary, CDF, plots, powers thus making a mockery of themselves.
