JAMMU, Feb 9: Expressing deep concern over the increasing number of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis in Jammu, Shiv Sena (Bala Sahib Thackrey) today asked these foreign nationals to leave Jammu without any delay.
While talking to media persons here today, the Shiv Sena State president Dimpy Kohli and general secretary Manish Sahni made an appeal to people of Jammu, especially Hindus to wake up and unite to save the history, culture and identity of Dogras.
Dimpy cited Article 370 of the Indian Constitution as one of the reasons for his party’s opposition to the Rohingya presence in the State. He said as per this Article , allowing any non-Indian to take up residence in the State is a “total violation of the Constitution” because the document of accession does not permit foreigners, whether they be Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar or West Pakistan Refugees, to live in Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that this was a conspiracy to reduce Dogra population to minority in their bastion Jammu by engineering demographic changes. He also said that these refugees are a security threat to India , Jammu as intelligence agencies have already termed them a “ticking time bomb”.
Dimpy said that as per the reports, 17 FIRs have been registered against 38 Rohingyas for various offences including those related to illegal border crossing. “We think that the State Government and Border Security Forces are at fault for allowing the Rohingya population to grow over the past ten or so years. He also suspected that the Rohingya Muslim settlements are part of the “Anglo-American conspiracy to create a crisis in Jammu and Kashmir.”
Dimpy made an appeal to the District Administration Jammu to throw out these anti social Rohingyas out of Jammu to save the region from any type of destruction.
Those who were present on the occasion, included Rakesh Gupta, Raj Singh, Narinder Chuni, Vikas Patel, Radhe Radhe Maharaj, Ramesh Gupta, Viajy Malayal and others.
