Give arms training, weapons to minority Hindus, vulnerable Muslims in Kashmir: Former J&K DGP Vaid

The former top cop recalled how he as the SSP of Udhampur in 1995 was instrumental in forming the first VDC in Bagankote village which was part of Udhampur district at that time. The village is now part of Reasi district carved out of Udhampur in 2007.

The area was infested with terrorism in the early 90s. SP Vaid said that later VDCs were formed through a formal J&K government order in Chenab valley region of Jammu division where Hindus are in minority.

"After the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Kashmir valley, the terrorists then started targeting the minority Hindus in the Chenab valley region of Jammu division. Many massacres of minority Hindus were carried out by the terrorists in the Chenab valley. But soon VDCs were constituted and people were given arms training. Muslims were also made part of the VDCs as they also faced terror attacks. This formula proved to be very successful and the mass exodus of Hindus was prevented," former DGP SP Vaid told India Today TV.

Of late, I have lost a lot of respect for Fair. She is full of contempt for Hindus, of course couching it in the language of 'secularism'. And she disparages every claim of Indian army. And she sides with that puke Ajai Shukla. In any case, from her twitter line, I found this interesting. I don't know what her conclusion is going to be, weather demo increased stone pelting or decreased?


By the way: stay tuned for our devastating analysis of demonetization upon stone-pelting. This project has taken over a year to fructify because of data collection.

Eight Terrorists Killed In 24 Hours In J&K, 2 Were Hiding In Mosque
More than two dozen terrorists have been killed by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir in the last two weeks. All of these killed terrorists are locals.
Reported by Nazir Masoodi, Neeta Sharma, Edited by Arun Nair Updated: June 19, 2020.

Srinagar: Eight terrorists were killed in two encounters in Shopian and Pampore in Jammu and Kashmir in the last 24 hours. In the Pampore operation, security forces eliminated two terrorists who were holed up inside a mosque. There was "no use of firing and IEDs" and "only tear smoke shells" were used to "maintain sanctity of the mosque", the police said.
"While conducting operation at Meez Pampore full sanctity of the mosque was maintained. Local people and Masjid committee expressed happiness and thanked district police chief Mr Tahir (Saleem) for patience and good supervision. They also complimented Army and CRPF involved in the operation for restraint," Jammu and Kashmir Police chief Dilbag Singh said.
In almost every operation security forces use Improvised Explosive Devices ( IED) and heavy firing to target houses where terrorists take refuge. The encounter in Pompore is one of the rarest of rare operation when tear smoke shells were used to kill the terrorists.

Arms-laden Pak drone shot down by BSF along International Border in J&K’s Kathua
The patrolling party of the BSF found the drone flying in Rathua area of Hiranagar sector in Kathua, Jammu And Kashmir
Ravi Krishnan Khajuria | Edited by Sparshita Saxena, Jun 20, 2020

The Border Security Force shot down a Pakistani drone along the International Border in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, the officials said. The patrolling party of the BSF found the drone flying in the Rathua area of Hiranagar sector in Kathua, Jammu And Kashmir and shot it down. The drone fell into a field.
“The Pakistani drone was flying inside Indian territory in Rathua area in Hiranagar sector around 5.10 am when a BSF patrol shot it down, “ said a police officer at Kathua police control room.
Inspector General, BSF Jammu Frontier NS Jamwal said, “The BSF has shot down a drone from Pakistan near Kathua and recovered among others M-4 US-made semi-automatic rifle, 60 rounds in it, two magazines and seven M67 grenades”.
“It is a big development because the Pakistanis have adopted similar modus operandi of what they have been doing in Punjab,” he added.
The six copter drone itself weighed around 17.5 kilograms and the consignment weighed around five to six kilograms, said Jamwal.

Islam can't tolerate equality. One has to just look at laws of Islamic countries to confirm that.


PDP-NC upset as 25,000 people including over people from Dalit and Gorkha community get domicile certificate, allege govt trying to change ‘Muslim majority’ character of J&K
https://www.opindia.com/2020/06/jammu-k ... character/

The Mehbooba Mufti led People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Omar Abdullah-led National Conference (NC) are reportedly upset and angry that 25,000 people, including people from Dalit and Gorkha community are provided domicile certificates of union territory of Jammu & Kashmir. Navin Kumar Choudhary, a Jammu and Kashmir-cadre IAS officer, has also become the first senior non-local officer to get a domicile certificate in Jammu and Kashmir under the new domicile law that was notified after the abrogation of Article 370 in the state.

About 50 refugees from West Pakistan belonging to Valmiki and Gorkha community who were living in Jammu & Kashmir but were not eligible to full citizenship as per previous laws, were also given the domicile certificate. These families had come to India after 1947 partition and settled in Jammu.

As per reports, the member of the Valmiki community were brought from Punjab in 1957 to work as cleaning staff but it was only after abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019, were they given eligible to get domicile certificate and subsequently vote.

Anyone responsible including local imams should be booked. Though parents are a good start. Islamists have no alms and have long history of producing and providing offsprings for jihad so no need to be pretending otherwise. For example, there are many females around the world heading to middle East to support jihad right now and have done so for centuries.

Art 370 effect? Separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani announces 'complete dissociation' from Hurriyat Conference
By PTI

Veteran separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday announced his dissociation from the faction of the Hurriyat Conference that he floated in 2003 by enforcing a vertical split in the amalgam. In a four-line letter and an audio message to the media, a spokesperson for the 90-year-old leader said, "Geelani has announced complete dissociation from Hurriyat Conference forum."
Geelani has written a detailed letter to all constituent parts of the amalgam about the reasons behind his decision to leave the Hurriyat Conference, of which he had been nominated as a lifetime chairman, he said.
Geelani said the activities of Hurriyat Conference members currently in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir were being investigated by the amalgam for various allegations. "The activities of these representatives were limited now to seeking access to assemblies and ministries for joining the government there (PoK). Some members were expelled while others started holding their own meetings. These activities were endorsed by you (constituents) by holding a meeting here to endorse their decisions," Geelani said in his two-page letter. He referred to inaction by the Hurriyat members post the abrogation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir, and the division of the erstwhile state into two Union territories.

Still burying bodies? A criminal person is no longer muslim.


Terrorists who had killed minor boy eliminated by security forces, bodies buried away from their native village
https://www.opindia.com/2020/07/terrori ... e-village/
In a significant decision, the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir have decided to take away the bodies of slain Islamic terrorists and bury them away from their village instead of handing them to the family in a bid to prevent the crowd from gathering.

According to the reports, the dead bodies of the two terrorists, who were killed in a gunbattle with security forces at Waghama in Jammu & Kashmir’s Anantnag district on Tuesday, were also buried by the security forces and was not handed over to their family because of coronavirus restrictions.

Last week, the two terrorists belonging to the Jammu Kashmir Islamic State (JKIS) had killed an eight-year-old and one Central Reserve Police Force soldier after they had opened fire at a road opening party of CRPF’s 90 Battalion near the Padshahi Bagh bridge in Bijbehara area.

Behind Hurriyat boss SAS Geelani’s exit, a bitter power struggle and greed
SAS Geelani had been most upset about his weakening grip over the hurriyat conference chapter in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir
Geelani, however, had been most upset about his weakening grip over his grouping’s faction in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

exctracts
The ISI had been promoting lesser known younger leaders in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir chapter and encouraged differences within this chapter. Geelani did fight back and nominated Abdullah Gilani to the top post. Abdullah is the brother of Delhi University professor SAR Gilani who was acquitted in the Jaish-e-Mohammad-led 2001 Parliament attack case that killed eight security personnel and a gardener.

But the ISI had Geelani’s directive rescinded and engineered the election of Mohammad Hussain Khateeb as the PoK chapter’s convenor to embarrass the leading face of the Kashmiri separatist movement.

A red-faced Geelani listed a litany of complaints. Geelani had been sore that representatives of the PoK chapter had been sending their relatives to the PoK assembly over the last two years, were indisciplined, engaged in rampant corruption; essentially out of his control.

“The leaders there were trying to be part of government and ministries. There was internal bickering, fear of losing posts, financial irregularities, and many other issues. Recently after investigations, some people were expelled and as the investigations were going on against other people, the representatives of your parties started calling separate so-called meetings which led to the dissolution of the chapter till further orders,’’ Geelani said in a letter announcing his decision to step down from the hurriyat conference.

J&K admin to complete digitisation of land records by July end
Jammu: To tackle land mafia and retrieve encroached government land, the Jammu and Kashmir administration has set a deadline of July 31 to complete survey and digitisation of land records across the union territory, official sources said on Wednesday.

The decision was taken after the administration learnt that illegal entries of encroached about nine lakh kanal state and forest land in the Jammu region by the land mafia have been officially deleted, and the land restored to the government only “on papers”, they said.

For some reason, today, certain people are suddenly concerned about people being “wiped out from their homeland”.

Such concern for human rights would have also been nice 30 years ago. :mrgreen:

Geelani’s resignation blows lid off Pakistan medical college racket and the shadow war within Hurriyat
do read the entire article
extracts
Its roots go back to the 2018 controversy over medical seats, sources have told The Sunday Express. Geelani’s reference to an “internal investigation,” in his letter is linked to this issue.

For close to two decades — beginning with the détente in the Musharraf years — Pakistan rolled out the red carpet for Kashmiri students wanting to study medicine and engineering. Until last year, students who could not get admission locally would head to Pakistan, where seats were reserved for them in colleges in PoK, Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. Most seats were fully sponsored by the Pakistan government, which used the Hurriyat, on both sides, to decide the allocation of these seats.

An indication of how many Kashmiris studied in Pakistan came when hundreds crossed the Wagah border last week and are now at Amritsar, waiting to be transported back to their homes.

In 2018, Abdullah Geelani, a Kashmiri and a former member of the Hizbul Mujahideen, who has lived in Pakistan for many years, alleged that Ghulam Mohammed Safi, then convenor of the Muzaffarabad chapter of the APHC, was “selling” these seats in Kashmir.

Abdullah is the younger brother of the late Delhi University teacher S A R Geelani who was acquitted of involvement in the 2001 Jaish attack on Parliament.

Last year, no students went because of uncertain conditions in Kashmir but before that, in Srinagar, it was an open secret that both the Geelani and Mirwaiz factions of the Hurriyat held sway over who got the seats, according to a beneficiary.

Wasim Bari Murder: Kashmir IG confirms negligence by security detail, all 10 PSOs suspended
https://www.opindia.com/2020/07/wasim-b ... suspended/
According to the reports, Jammu and Kashmir police have found vital information indicating the involvement of LeT in the attack. The CCTV footage that police have retrieved showed terrorist moments before Bari and his family members, brother Umar Sultan and father Bashir Ahmad were killed. Police also found that at least one of the terrorists was local, and the other was from Pakistan. A manhunt has been initiated based on the information collected from the CCTV footage.

DGP Dilbagh Singh was quoted by Aaj Tak, saying, “this is the handiwork of a hybrid group. Two terrorists were involved, one local and one a Pakistani.” One of them has been identified as Abid. Singh said that it is possible that it was a planned attack and they kept in mind the proximity of the Bandipora police station that is only 50 feet away from the location of the incident.

Given the cost vs need, many should be booked for criminal negligence.

Yes. He is the mole who triggered the UTization of J&K and Ladakh. You don't want such people to write what's on their minds. The poor family security staff were complicit in the killing.

Rupees 500 was all it took to officially grab land of Pandits in Kashmir
1953 was a watershed year in the history of Kashmir as it marked the beginning of state sponsored ethnic cleansing. The most critical part of this strategy was the Land Reform Act – widely known as Kashtkaar Act.

Sheikh Abdullah introduced this act to grab the land owned by the minority aboriginals. About 95 per cent of the land custodians in the Kashmir valley were still Hindus.

This land was of two types- the land that was being managed by Hindus on behalf of Maharaja against an annual tax to the kingdom and the land that was purchased and owned by Hindus for the purpose of agriculture and residences.

This was not a land that was gifted to them. They used to pay a fixed yearly sum against the particular land allocated to them by Maharaja Hari Singh of Kashmir.

These custodians, contrary to the elitist theory peddled by vested interests also belonged to the lower income group – often, the smaller land managers would till the land themselves.

While agricultural land was mostly owned by Hindus, the lucrative sericulture, horticulture and floriculture land meant for cultivation of fruits, flowers and silk was under control of the Muslim majority. Post-independence, the land ownership continued until the accession of Kashmir with India. However the grand land reform act of 1953 overturned this. The custodians went to the court and later on it was decided that a pittance of 200 Kanals (unit of land area) maximum would be allocated to male scions of the Hindu families (father, son and grandson).

Astoundingly, the lucrative horticulture land with Muslims was exempted from this draconian act. My maternal family – the Kilams, along with other families played a key role in fighting these legal battles across various courts for over 10,000 Kanals of land that was usurped under this brazen state sponsored land grab.

In 1975 the then Congress led Chief Minister Mir Qasim pushed this draconian act of persecution to another level by removing the 200 Kanal law that Hindus by then saw as fait accompli. Mir Qasim introduced another atrocious law by snatching away those 200 Kanals of land and gifted to the Muslim tillers.

Due to various representations by Kashmiri Pandits the then Mir Kasim government relented to the extent of offering a meager 1/4th of the produce to be given to the Pandits for 20 years only and then all rights would cease. Overnight, in a manner of speaking, the miniscule minority was rendered a pauper.

In the same year (1975) Zamindar Association of Kashmir was formed and representations were made to the ousted Shaikh Abdulla for parleying with the government to restore the previous Act. In a meeting at Dachigam, Shaikh agreed to intervene provided Hindus wholeheartedly supported him in forthcoming elections and ensured that all Hindus voted for him and his National Conference. As destiny would have it, Mir Qasim fell off with Indira Gandhi and that led to the famous Indira Shaikh accord that paved the way for Shaikh Abdulla to return to power. Unexpectedly and regrettably, upon becoming the Chief Minister, he reneged on his commitment but relented to the extent that only 100 acres of land was restored to Pandits for 20 years.

However, temple property, orphans and the land to widows was fully restored to the extent of 200 acres only. Despite cosmetics, the travesty did not end for the Pandits. By then the systematic state sponsored ethenic cleansing was unleashed and Shaikh introduced a resumption form to be filled for reclaiming even this remainder of 100 acres of land supported with another draconian law.

The law stated for Hindus to reclaim the meager land, it had to be within 6 kms of their residence. The dance of injustice reached its zenith with implementation of this new law and procedure and a vast majority of Pandits were outside the 6 km prescribed limit.

The travesty did not end there, this land was gifted to the Muslims against a paltry levy of Rs 500 per Kanal against the prevalent rate of Rs. 1 lakh per Kanal at that time. The horrors of this land grab kept getting worse even for the handful of Hindus who were found to be within the 6 km limit. The Tehsildars, Patwaris and the government machinery created loops within loops to drag the paperwork leading across the board litigations against this persecution of Kashmiri Pandits.

He further introduced laws which included conditions like giving away the land from the Hindu owners to tillers at a throw away price of Rs 500 per Kanal. This was primarily for the land that was outside the 6 km limit.

The stage was set and the result was the Pandits lost more than 90 per cent of the land owned by them. Later on (1990s) the same land was taken over by railways under leadership of Nitish Kumar at a huge compensation of Rs. 2,50,000 per Kanal.

This was a brazen illegal act by the erstwhile government as this land was owned by the resident Pandits, illegally sold and acquired by the Railways. Many legal cases of ownership dispute continue to be buried in the dormant administrative camaraderie for ethnic cleansing of the Hindus.

The vast majority of Hindu land is still in legal disputes in various courts, usurped and compensations are taken by illegal occupants who have obviously altered the land records and the original owners are in exile - unable to defend the last remains of their ancestry.

In this horrifying tragedy to loot Hindus of their rightful land, Shia dominated Budgam set a humanitarian example. The presiding Maulana and the head of the sect publically revolted against the atrocities against Hindus. He instructed all the Muslims, predominantly Shias to restore all such land back to Hindus. He proclaimed this Land Reform Act and all the land that was grabbed from Hindus under this act as unholy and unIslamic.

Budgam set an example of universal brotherhood by handing over the land back to Hindus with one caveat that in a situation that the Hindu wishes to sell the land then first right of refusal and an NoC must be first obtained from the tiller. In the same 90's shameful and hideous act of forcing the Kashmiri Pandits out of Kashmir was enforced. The legal status of the land ownership though may have remained the same however the on ground situation is completely different. All the acts and decisions taken together in entirety right from 1948 will sum up to only one conclusion, land was grabbed and snatched from Kashmiri Pandits and was used as a very effective tool for Islamisation of Kashmir.



and
Be it PDP, National conference or Congress, all the parties did their best to ensure that Kashmiri Pandits are deprived of everything which may help them to even think of coming back to Kashmir. Post the forced terror induced migration of Hindus it is common knowledge and widely reported how their homes were illegally occupied, looted and set on fire with the sole purpose of restricting their return. Of Course, article 370 which is often confused with terror was actually a vital tool to deprive Hindus of means to exist. Transferring land without compensation was possible since the provisions of the Indian constitution did not yet apply in the state.

The country’s leadership had ensured that the right to property was included among the fundamental rights, which could not be challenged.It is relatively well-known that many Kashmiris almost worshipped the ground on which Sheikh Abdullah walked. Seventeen persons were killed in stampede at his funeral. However, the roots for his iconic popularity are rarely discussed. Some vested groups, ignorant media and politicians alike keep pedaling the elitist attitude of Kashmiri Pandits as among a cause for their ouster from the valley.

Not enough money. And funds or benefits need to come directly from something that affects islamic forces. May be something like 100 more domiciles.

The wisdom of appointing a seasoned bureaucrat as the LG of JK is now becoming clear - the way to eradicating terrorism is through regulatory and administrative reforms, not through enhanced CT ops. Those are already as good as they can get, but are only firefighting at best. The solution to permanently stop the fire is by removing the dry tinder that has been allowed to accumulate for decades

Biggest J&K land scam: 21 lakh acres state, forest land encroached - In the J&K land scam, revelation unearthed shows Ghulam Nabi Azad granted land to persons not even born
Indeed, a startling revelation that showed how powerful and well-entrenched were, and are, who encroached the state and forest lands in Jammu province? What was more startling was the revelation that not 24 lakh, but “21 lakh acres of state and forest land have encroached in Jammu & Kashmir by the land mafia in league with revenue officials over the past several decades, taking advantage of several orders of the earlier governments.” One acre of land is equal to 43,560 sq feet. It means millions and millions of sq feet of state and forest land illegally occupied by the land mafia consisting of persons within and outside the establishment, politicians, and others.

Even far more dumbfounding was the revelation that the powers-that-be in the Revenue Department mutated land in favour of persons who were not even born. It would be only prudent to refer to here verbatim reports in this regard based on official inputs. These read like this: “The laws and acts were used to usurp the government lands in a planned way, including under the 2001 Roshni Act. Those who had state land under their cultivation in Kharif 1958 AD were given tenancy rights of such state land vide government notification LB-6. Subsequently, vide S-432 notification, such tenants of the state agricultural land were given proprietary rights, but without the right to alienate such land. In districts of Poonch, Rajouri and Doda in Jammu province as well as in other districts, a major scam has happened wherein some corrupt revenue officers have mutated land in favour of those under notification of S-432 who were even not born in 1958. A huge chunk of state land has been illegally mutated under notification S-432 in favour of undeserving people. In 1970, when agrarian reforms were introduced vide J&K Agrarian Reforms Act, the then Congress government had put a ban on LB-6 and mutations under S-432. But when Ghulam Nabi Azad became the Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir in November 2005, he deliberately removed this ban on S-432 to encourage the illegal transfer of state land to occupants born after 1958.”
