In bizarre incident unfolding in Kashmir unrest, the unruly mob has now started harassing minorities by issuing threat letters.
According to reports from South Kashmir, unruly mob frustrated over the stubborn approach of the government has started threatening minorities, asking them to join the protests and raise anti-national slogans.
The minorities are even threatened of dire consequences if they did not abide by the content of the letter.
As per the content of the letter, miscreants have threatened minorities that if they did not join protest, their houses and orchards will be damaged.
Several Sikh groups from South Kashmir informed Newspoint that a group of protestors entered their locality and raised anti-government slogans and forced them to come with them and take part in ongoing protest.
The seniors among minorities agreed to protest the civilian killing but denied to raise anti-India slogans.
Sources said that minority community has put forth this issue before government/Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh and demanded strict action against the people who threatened minorities.
Sources said that a delegation of Sikh leaders met the Deputy Chief Minister and expressed concern over the discrimination and negligence of government for not protecting them in their own land. They warned the government if they are not protected then they will compel to migrate from the valley. For this Deputy Chief Minister assured them that this is your mother land you will be protected by the government”, sources said.
Sources said that Deputy Chief Minister expressed his incompetence to act in this regard, saying that, “Home Ministry is under Chief Minister and he will ask CM to take cognizance of the issue,” sources said and added the response from the deputy chief minister was not satisfactory.
BJP Minority Cell Incharge, Virenderjeet Singh said, “In this regard, we have met party higher ups as this is a sensitive issue and BJP high command assured that they will take this issue on priority basis.”
